#MSWL I’m very interested in projects from active duty military, veterans, and their family members. I want to hear your unique story! My brother suffers PTSD from his tour in Afghanistan and I have a soft spot for this underrepresented group of brave men and women.
Andrea Williams @AndreaWillWriteToday, my first piece for @bustle pubbed. It's about the lack of military-themed historical fiction that centers black women; it touches on the same biases that @mirajacob discusses in her thread. It is important reading.
#MSWL My Adult Romance loves are enemies to lovers tropes, as well as best friend to lovers tropes, and I really fall for some wounded military heroes and alpha males with a strong softness, as well as women who can hold their own but realize they don't necessarily need to.
Lindsey Hall @LindseyHall17#MSWL fantasy w/ a translator protag. There's so much power in language-- how they translate for a ruler effects a whole kingdom, eg. I want to see the nuances & consequences of deciding how & what to translate, word play between languages, times when translation falls short
I would 100% love this. Also: messenger protagonist in a military fantasy setting. The folks who ride all night to bring the warnings of disaster. #MSWL
My current nonfiction #MSWL: true crime, history/politics, philosophy, military history, astronomy, astrophysics, "weird" science, philosophy, select memoirs, and earth sciences by experts in their field, especially volcanology or SHARKS. I cannot stress SHARKS enough. #querytip
Brit Elisabet Hvide Busse @bhvideInspired by #VeteransDay I'm hoping someone starts writing a military SF in the vein of Old Man's War/Forever War about our current culture of warfare. So much has changed since 1974 and 2005. What is war like now? #MSWL
