This bear has a bias, but accepts that there doesn't have to be a bear in it.

I appreciate the invite, but I can't find enough time to work on the projects I already have in progress.

Besides, I don't play well with others. :)

It's only 20 hours (less if you're a fast writer)

That's the best bit, no-one else gets to write your bit. Complete freedom.

But if you don't wanna, you don't wanna and that's OK.

A little back story... some side plots... Give it some moments of suspense.

Okay, chick lit aside (since I've been duly informed that it isn't a proper genre), I'm goin' for the gusto and choosing a highly suspenseful spy thriller - yup highly suspenseful spy thriller is my genre choice ... I think ... perhaps ... if not then it's gotta be a cozy mystery .... NOT ... oh, sigh ... .

It's not! It's a target audience, not a genre (in my head, anyway). "Chick lit" tells me nothing about the Story, the Reality, or the Emotion of the book.

Really?

You need a teenage daughter.
Story: sappy love triangle.
Reality: This one but where all the men are fit... ALL OF THEM .. no matter what they really look like.
Emotions: Chick.... all of them... all the time... with rapid unpredictable changes.

Wait... we are talking books, not conversations with my daughter. Never mind.
