Dark dark dark DARK. GIMME DARK
And just to be clear—this doesn’t mean “make it as bloody/gross/crude/disgusting as possible (i.e. violence for no reason, sexual assault, etc.). I’m talking themes. Emotions. Difficult—impossible—decisions. Angry, conflicted protagonists.
YA fantasy! I’m all about witchy blood magic—darker is better (does anyone see a trend here yet). Queer! Enemies to lovers! Magic with consequences! Tangled friend/family relationships! Unique plot lines with lots of tension/conflict! AND DON’T FORGET THE KISSING I NEED KISSING
Haven’t found my novel written in verse yet—particularly wanting this for YA!! Contemporary preferred—again melancholy, mental health/queer centered, darker is better. DYING FOR LYRICAL VOICES HERE.
YA contemporary! I’m dying for a queer story revolving, especially one revolving around mental health. I want unique concepts and HIGH STAKES and lots of conflict. I tend to be drawn to more melancholy tones in contemporary—but adore humor and light sprinkled throughout!
Eliza Swift @elizaswiftThinking on my 2020 #MSWL and what I'd really like to see in my inbox are monstrous girls (maybe literally!) and the cinnamon rolls that love them
#MSWL for the new year pt 7: the below tweet!! Give me all the villainous girls and the cinnamon rolls that love them anyways. Honestly, couples that juxtapose each other is a huge hell yes for me.
caitlin 🍜 @caitlinaltheaTired: high fantasy books set in ye olden days
Wired: high fantasy books set in modern times that show the juxtaposition between magic & technology & how the two work together but clash in some ways
Dr. Cat Hicks 📈👩🏻🔬🦄🏳️🌈 @grimalkinaFunny how hustle porn rears up so aggressively during the literal one week a year that the US actually reliably treats as a holiday? FUNNY! Anyway here are some favorite things about rest:
This thread is a #MSWL. How do we reform work culture so people can have rest and free time without feeling guilty?
#MSWL for the new year pt 5: stories with dual or multi-POVs, especially if it's a group of friends. I want to see POVs that bounce off one another, add tension, or really grow the dynamic between the characters.
Jennifer Wright @JenAshleyWrightDuring the Renaissance, Giulia Tofana created a poison disguised as women’s makeup. Hundreds of women used it to poison their husband and become widows. SCHOOLS opened to allow women to learn how to kill their shitty husbands. twitter.com/yogioabs/statu…
