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:

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
