11 posts on the subject of "what does midnight really mean" was a bit too much of an off topic and clearly a separate thread. :D

Tell your writing friends! Let's try and get three books done this year!


Mr. PigFender, you give the phrase glutton-for-punishment new meaning.

So, is there hope that it will be chick lit? Just wondering. :wink:

Wow! And, I've not even had an oppo to get out there and pimp for the cause of NIAD. Soon, very soon, but not too late.

Also from Scrib, also would like to be a part of the madness.

I have several sample up on Scrib, Ayshta and Friday would be best to read, Psy-Hunter is rough through the last half and an early draft. I can post those excerpts somewhere here if you would like.

Jdsalt, CharlieNovak, StilaWebb, welcome to the forum! I've sent you all a Direct Message with details of the next steps. Note, I'm currently at a friend's wedding, so won't get round to reading / responding to anything you send over until Sunday.

It's a seeeeeeecret! In any case, I think of chick lit as a writing style designed to appeal to a specific audience rather than a genre. As such, any chapter can be chick lit if you want! :D
