For this challenge, I decided to approach "chick lit", a genre I used to read in college, but have outgrown as a reader. For those of you who don't know, "chick lit" is like a "chick flick", but literature, which is a genre of women's fiction that is written and marketed for young and single working women in their 20's. "Chick lit" often features professional, strong, and independent working women, mostly in the publishing, writing, law, and journalism fields. It almost always takes place in large metropolitan areas like New York and London, and often makes use of sex, slang and multiple cliches.
Sex and the City is a great example of "chick lit", as well as any Red Dress Ink book on the market today. Although these books are cliche and have common and often predicable story lines, they are still bestsellers. People are saps for love stories with happy endings, especially single women in their 20's.
Below I have featured a short blurb for my story. Keep in mind--it is subject to change as the novel writing process is fluid and constantly changing. Yes, it is cliche. Yes, you have probably read books or seen movies with a similar storyline. It is my job, however, to make it as original and clever as I possibly can. If you were into reading "chick lit", and this blurb was on the back cover, I hope you would pick it up and buy the book. Although this is still a synopsis, in 30 days, it will be a full novel. Wish me luck!!!
