All right, I'm going to make a long thread, related to the link I just tweeted but a different focus. Which is: I'm really disturbed by some of the ways is being co-opted, either to silence already underrepresented folks or to push for a media landscape of /erasure/

Is there any clear consensus on when should or shouldn’t be used? I’ve just seen an author using it in a situation that makes me kind of uncomfortable, but I’m not the authority on it and don’t want to discount their lived experience.

The thing about writing , is we are writing from our personal experience, it DOES NOT mean we are speaking for the rest of the communities we are a part of. There are many ways to embrace your heritage. We want to offer a look into the way we did that.

It's time for that thread on exposition re: POC experiences in fiction (before I keep revising this thread into oblivion 😅) It’s something I’ve thought a lot about since I began preparing my Chinese American MS for querying.

Latinx version of Candyman. Milagros is a migrant worker in 1950s south Texas. Her murder is ignored by humans, but not by the flayed Aztec goddess Mictēcacihuātl. The old ways of the New World want to be reborn.

I'm seeing a lot of agents looking for LGBTQ stories for YA/MG. Amazing. But II don't see that same interest for adult fiction, which is tough. Teens aren't the only ones who want to read their . Dear agents, if you're looking for a f/f adult novel, I got one for you

The main reason why there are more and diverse books is because all the kids who desperately wanted to see themselves represented in books are adults now. They decided to write the books they never had, so that children today can see characters who look like them.

Anyone who says romance authors *churn out* books has clearly never written one. Or churned butter. IT'S HELLA HARD! 7hrs editing & looking at missing scenes from my WIP. Turns out I've about 9 scenes left to write. Out. Of. Order. *the fear*

I may not love it, but I'd never leave a bad review on an book. We can discuss flaws in our own communities, call in authors if they're actually problematic. But bad press could keep more and better of our own stories from ever being told.

Original Mexican urban legend told at a sleepover turns out to be true. Milagros, a migrant worker in 1953 becomes something terrifying with the help of the Aztec queen of the dead. In 2018, horror will be reborn.

So, I've been struggling with comps for my Muslim MG and after reading reviews and a synopsis of another author's book, I realize that her book is the perfect comp (plus another comp book because the theme is the same but the stories are completely different)...

One of the most uncomfortable truths is that some people are going to be considered more valuable than you in the eyes of society. Don’t believe them.

It's not writers' faults. It's not minorities' faults or critics' faults. It's not ' fault. We're all in this together, trying to make for a better world in whatever ways we can. Be part of that. Please. (FIN)

Regarding and authors: Not every autistic person knows they're autistic. Not every autistic person discloses that self-knowledge, publicly or privately. There are almost certainly more of us than we realize.

I have a hard time talking about my midwestern gothic wip. Not because I don't have a full grasp of the story, but because in many ways it is an wip and I know it has the potential to really create rifts in my own family. There. I said it.
