We Real Hip*

We real hip. Write
chick lit. We

buy shoes. We
drink booze. We

write men. Get
e-ven. Chick

lit's ditched. Let's
write Bitch Lit.

Bitch Lit, a new genre, coming soon from a Bunion near you. Tales of women with more on their minds than men.

This blog post brought to you courtesy the death knell tolling at Agent Kristen's blog.

*With deepest apologies to Gwendolyn Brooks, whose hem I am not worthy to kiss.

Gawd.
There must be something better between "crone" lit and "lady" lit.

BTW, do you know of Transita? A UK publishing company which promotes books by and about women of a certain age. A google will bring it up. You might all want to investigate if you haven't already.

I'll take brilliant, Michele. Thanks.

Rachel - HINDSIGHT might be Bitch Lit. Not certain. I'm calling it women's fiction.

I'll stick up the Crone Lit and Bitch Lit titles tonight or tomorrow. So keep the entries coming, so to speak.
