#MSWL These are the kinds of details that build a convincing, contemporary YA world. Teens are intertwined with digital communication, and they're secretive, which means they're going to figure this shit out on their own. So much to mine! Write it true.

If you have middle grade or YA project that feels like #OneDayAtATime with all of that amazing diverse representation, please send it my way. I’ll need to fill the hole created by its cancellation. #mswl

I need more books that use settings *as* characters as well. I love living histories! Places can d/evolve and have arcs of their own. Stories can happen *to* and not just *in* them. And exploring that doesn't have to be pigeonholed as worldbuilding alone.

One of the things good gothic fantasy & claustrophobic scary spaceship stories have in common is that they both do setting-as-character well.

Really, any setting can be made to feel like a character. Creepy castle? Floating city? Jungle that *devours* people? YES.

This will come as no surprise to my Twitter followers, given the inexplicably high volume of raccoon videos I retweet: I want/need a picture book about raccoons. #MSWL

Kids around the US are ditching school on Friday to call out adults for not doing enough on climate change…

“When you don't have anything other than your voice, you have to use it,” Haven Coleman, a 12-year-old striker in Denver, Colorado. “We have to fight for our future because adults aren't doing anything.”

These kids are incredible. I'd love to find a story with this voice. #MSWL

#mswl - a sweeping middle grade series with heart and humor! Related, but more specifically: a middle grade series with puzzle-y elements. And, always, middle grade with magic, especially cozy magic!

It's a bit of a hodgepodge, but I've updated my #MSWL inspiration board on Pinterest. Let me know what you think. 😁

I have a #MSWL, one that I've wanted for a long time. I would love, LOVE, to work with a female veteran who is writing the Great American War Novel, where women and their lives are centered instead of on the periphery. Also, if this exists, tell me so I can read it.
