Jen Wilde @jenmariewildeOn my way home tonight I walked past two really drunk dudes arguing. Like YELLING at each other in the middle of the street...
Dude 1: I JUST NEED YOU TO BE THE ILANA TO MY ABBI RIGHT NOW, BRO!
Dude 2: I *AM* BEING THE ILANA TO YOUR ABBI, DUDE! I’M TOTALLY YOUR ILANA!
You know who I would like to meet in my inbox? The modern-day equivalent of the Quimby family. Where do they live? What do they look like? What conflicts are they facing? That's for you mg writers out there to imagine! #MSWL

Ditto but for grown ups. #MSWL
In addition to historical (see my pinned tweet) I’m looking for fresh, high-concept contemporary romcoms for my list. Digital and/or mass market opportunities, depending on author track, writing schedule, and word count. Query + full to my attn via entangledpublishing.submittable.com/submit/ #MSWL
Random #MSWL: I'd love a MG that deals explicitly with periods: the pain, the missing school, gym class, worrying about your pants/your chair, all that. I got mine between 5th and 6th grade at Disney World -- DISNEY WORLD -- and it was a game. changer.
First Up @FirstUpRNZThese little blue penguins had to be removed from under a sushi store near the Wgtn railway station, not once - but twice.
The two little kororā showed a complete disregard for police authority after being removed from under a food truck, and returning later in the day. 😍😍 pic.twitter.com/i728NRe0LP
