I practically live at the library. While there, I was scanning the shelves for non-fiction books on writing. Cool fonts and colors stick out, so I grabbed a pink one named, “See Jane Write: A Girl’s Guide To Writing Chick Lit“. I learned a lot from this book. It was the first time I ever heard the term “chick lit”. Intrigued, I rented two chick lit books: “Tales of a Drama Queen” and “Confessions of a Shopoholic“. They were . . . okay. See, they might have had a good story and lively voices (I even laughed out loud during “Tales of a Drama Queen“). But there’s no way to get around the “lovey dovey” scenes. I don’t even try. Why poison a book with PG-13 material? It’s a complete turn off. Even during movies, I don’t watch those scenes. Why would I voluntarily want something like that playing in my head? It’s like porn in writing. Needless to say, I didn’t get to the end of these books but sent them back to the book drop. It’s just something I don’t tolerate. A turn off. Sorry. My only question at the end of this is: are all chick lit books like that way ?
