Here at Chick Lit Writers “It’s all about the attitude”…
So what better way to showcase the Chick Lit genre than to “show” some of that attitude?!
Starting with last Wednesday’s post and continuing today, that’s exactly what we’re doing!
To kick-off today’s ‘Tude-torial, take a look at this fabulous quote by award-winning journalist and multi-published author Jennifer Coburn:
“…I find the attack on chick-lit more than a bit disheartening. Is this where we are – one group of women writers mocking another, deeming its work irrelevant? Are women really criticizing each other about what they read?! An author recently commented that the term chick-lit sounds as if the writing is about, for and by women, nothing more. Nothing more?! Why isn’t that enough?!…”
— Jennifer Coburn, “Two Literary Chicks”, THIS IS CHICK-LIT
When I first read Coburn’s take, and every time I’ve read it since, I just want to stand up and shout ‘Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about! You go, Girl!’
I look at it like Advice Columnist E. Jean Carroll once said:
Yeah, as in get outta bed and read whatever the Hell you want, right?! Kind of puts it all into perspective…just sayin’…
Now once you’re out of bed, take a look out your nearest window at the gorgeous Autumn splendor coloring our world.
And remember this little gem…
“Every great oak tree was once a nut that stood its ground” — Author Unknown
So “be a nut” and read and write whatever makes you and your muses dance like nobody’s watching.
I mean, really! Who the Hell cares what other people think?!
