I checked out other social platforms of Maggie Thrash and I’m a tad surprised. A decent amount of followers on Instagram (1,519) are all watching as she posts selfies with her cat. In fact, her last post is of her wearing a Jonas Brothers t-shirt surrounded by a pink glitter background (here). It’s no wonder she is hitting the YA genre hard. Her mini bio states she is “the bad boy of YA lit” and a “Twihard lesbian.” Her site lonercomics.com is practically a collection of doodles. Her last a story about her gas station PDA and strawberry milk.
I’m struck. My last Instagram post is a hedgehog surrounded by a pink background. I think YA lit is badass and I plan on writing for the genre. While I am not a lesbian, I do like Twilight. I also have a collection of doodle in my writing notebooks to go along with my thoughts. I’m typing this while drinking chocolate milk.
Alright, alright. It’s not directly related, but it is something worth mentioning.
Speaking of worth mentioning, I viewed more of the authors in the list. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Alison Bechdel both do more of a blog like mine Pots every so often in a scroll down fashion, and not nine sections to go through to get to the good stuff. Kinda wish Maggie Thrash had more of this style. Or at least a page notched out for it. I want to know her thoughts about things. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Alison Bechdel could be cool. I mean their handle names are interesting.
