This Week in Chick Lit

~ By Melina Kantor  

Hello Chick Lit Fans!

Happy December! Especially to those of you who participated in NaNoWriMo. Congratulations to all of you. Here’s hoping that December is full of wonderful naps and fun movies.

One thing I’m always pondering after NaNo (besides the fact that my apartment is a mess but I’m too exhausted to do anything about it) is my writing process. By coincidence, I came across some interesting blog posts by other chick lit writers and how they write.

The first is by Liz and Liza from the wonderful site Chick Lit is Not Dead.

The second is actually a group of posts from author Samantha March, who also runs the site Chick Lit Plus.

So, dear readers, we’d love to know more about your writing process. What works / doesn’t work for you?

Have a great weekend! 🙂
