Seeing lots of space operas this morning. So fun.
P.S. I'd love to find your version of HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY meets [fill in the blank]. Throw in a dash of romance, and I'm hooked! #MSWL
(The answer is "42," but what is the question?)
TiatheTurkey 🦃 @TiatheTigerStick it to your enemies by doing a sponsor-a-highway in their name on a road they frequent so they have to pick up litter or be widely hated by everyone when that stretch of road is covered in trash
Write this into a book and I’ll laugh #mswl
carlydraws @carlydraws@chavelaque What subject would you like to see more books about?
A PB on the Atlanta washerwoman’s strike, or Pullman porters, or the Chicano rights movement; MG novels starring boys of color doing sports; MG or YA NF on topics of POC history #mswl
"Sci-fi & fantasy novels. I love them. I read a ton of them. But they have to be accessible.What does that mean? It means that readers who don't traditionally pick up much sci-fi/fantasy, can pick up one of these novels & enjoy it." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Noelle Strader @noelle_straderFor the YA crowd. Today I learned, directly from a teen boy, that high school guys are wearing their girlfriends’ scrunchies on their wrists to indicate they’re taken. pic.twitter.com/ycWYEx2Zr3

Amy Stapp @AmyStappNY1) Heard fellow Hoosier Buttigieg say something today that I completely relate to: “I didn’t realize how Midwestern I was until I left the Midwest.” First moving South at 18 And then I didn’t realize how very American I was til I saved every dollar I earned to go to Paris at 21.
2) It got me thinking about why I love travel stories or fish out of water stories or stories of cultures different from my own, particularly in the young adult space. Travel stretches you in ways you can’t anticipate. #MSWL But at heart, still a midwestern girl here in NYC 😉

Come to think of it, All I Want For Christmas Is You could be pretty threatening. #MSWL??!
Hi #writingcommunity! I have 9 middle-grade queries in my box right now. I WANT MORE.
Adventure, Fantasy, sci-fi, magical realism, horror, historical, everything!
Also, I am open to considering non-fiction middle-grade novels, especially LGBTQ+ and STEM for girls. #MSWL
Molly Cusick @molly_cusickAgents, I'm now caught up on subs through 11/3. I'm going to try to close everything out before the end of the year. If you have any of those special projects you've saved for your last of 2019, I'd love to see them!
