Today’s Twitter hashtag is #MSWL, which stands for manuscript wish list and is dominated by agents and publishers. It’s definitely an interesting hashtag to read through, especially if you are stuck for ideas on what to write. Some that really caught my eye are:

  • “Why are most contemporary fantasies in cities? Is suburban fantasy a thing? Oh! What about rural fantasy?”
  • “Also on my list: vintage technology. Give me a story (fiction or non) about something like the telegraph, the beginning of TV, etc.”
  • “Would love a cozy mystery series featuring a pair of female house cleaners.Castle meets Merry Maids.By-the-book cop boyfriend a plus!”
  • “In the mood to read a YA about REVENGE. And COUNTRY MUSIC. (this tweet brought to you by me being sick+listening to Carrie Underwood)”
  • “Would love to see more romantic heroes who are manly/macho, but have typically feminine jobs (ex: florist, barista, librarian, etc) … Seriously though. If anyone has a romance ms with a hero who is a tatted up florist or somewhat equivalent I will read it ASAP”

And my personal favorite:

  • “Wait, so is Manuscript Wish List? Three words, four letters… Manu Script? Aren’t these word people?”

What’s on your reading wishlist? What would you want queried to you if you were an agent?

    OK. I might have to start following this tag because seriously? Those are some awesome plot ideas. Curse them. Now I want to write about a tatted florist. Reminds me of Vinny from Atlantis: The Lost Empire who helped his family run the flower shop (he hated prom) before becoming a bomb tech, but wanted to open up a new flower shop. Now I wanna write this…
