Okay, my thoughts on it? LE CRAP! I HAVE NO FULL MANUSCRIPT DONE. But it looks like it’s okay, they just want one chapter and a summary of what happens. The scary thing is if one wins it, you got to at least FINISH the manuscript and that’s the freaky deaky thing. What if there are writer blocks and stuff and etc?! WE CAN NEVER KNOW. But in any case, it’s so SO tempting. I shall convene with my friends to see if I should join… Heck, we all know I’m full of chic litery.

  1. If you don’t know what’s a chic lit, means you ain’t the audience for it. That, or you’re a spammer since I edited your post to not reveal urls (if you aren’t a spammer, please comment less generically). I’ll just say it’s those happy books with the audience of ladies in mind.

  2. Hi! I found your website because I’m also thinking of entering. I just wanted to say that I’m also at just a summary and an opening chapter… so I hope you’re joining too 🙂

  3. Good luck to you too then!! It’ll be interesting to see whoever’s gonna be the winner anyway since I like reading chic lit.
