“Don’t you ever get fed up reading and writing Chick-Lit?” I was asked last week.
I was incredulous! How on earth can you tire of a genre that boasts so many talented writers and such imaginative plots?
The breadth of wonderful characters Chick-Lit has, who find themselves in situations which are weird, wonderful or laughable, seems endless.
And the passion with which Chick-Lit authors tell these fantastic stories, is captivating from the first page.
There’s a common misconception that all this genre requires, is a candy pink cover.
Chick-Lit, for me, requires a love of story telling and characterisation which draws the reader in immediately – and stays with them long after they have finished the last page.
So thank you to all those terrific Chick-Lit writers out there who inspire me – and please keep those fantastic books coming!
