Kind of shocked there is NOTHING here.

So here I go, because I'm haunting this site now. Just call me the AWF ghost! Wooooo! :tuxout:

ChickLit (which is horribly catchy) or Women's Fiction - what is it, precisely? Stuff written by women? For women? About women?

THE GHOST COMMANDS YOU TO REPLY! WOOOOOO!!

I like to define it like this: anything you'd watch on Lifetime Television.

Men might like it, but it's primarily written for women.

Wiki says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chick_lit

Chick lit is a term used to denote genre fiction within women's fiction written for and marketed to young women, especially single, working women in their twenties and thirties. The genre sells well, with chick lit titles topping bestseller lists and the creation of imprints devoted entirely to chick lit. It generally deals with the issues of modern women humorously and lightheartedly.

Hmm okay but I always found stuff on Lifetime to be very pain oriented like rape stories and family falling apart stories and whatnot - happy ending, yeah, but still. Would like romance novel like stuff be considered chicklit or does that stay nicely in it's own genre?

Im LEARNING! :yipi:
