Missing Chick Lit Part 227

I just came back from a family wedding. First of all, let me say it was completely and totally and fantastically fun. I knew we were in for a good time when the cops closed down the rehearsal dinner. Completely totally fantastic.

Second of all, let me say it makes me miss writing chick lit! Oh, the funny family dramas! Oh, the silly little mishaps! Oh, finding out that we apparently almost decapitated the groom's brother at his wedding with a ceiling fan when we lifted him up in the chair and danced around to Hava Nagila! Oh, the sweetness of the ceremony. How happy the bride and groom were to be together! Especially after we set them back down on the ground with their heads still attached to their necks.

I doubt I'll ever write anything where I can use a groom-decapitation by ceiling fan. I'm actually not sure I could even put it in a chick lit book, but just thinking about it makes me fingers itch to start typing. Maybe the main character is a bride whose groom met his demise at the wedding? Maybe it's the wedding planner who's career is ruined by letting the family accidentally decapitate the groom? Or the cousin who lifted the groom? Even possibly the slightly older cousin who probably should have known better, but just loves doing that?

Anyway, I'm back home. I'm exhausted and may have pulled my IT band by dancing like a crazy fool and I miss my chick lit.

I miss Chick Lit too!

Damn, those were fine books. Helped carry one through the day.

And the image of the ceiling fan -- I'm laughing out loud.

Eileen, I miss chick lit so much. I don't want to write it, but I love great chick lit and I know I'm not alone.

It's got to be time for a chick lit comeback...

That sounds like some kind of wedding!!!

I miss great chick lit, too. I blogged yesterday on the chick lit writers of the world blog. (But my post was mostly plagiarized from my post here last week.)

I definitely miss chick lit and I know we're not alone. My chick lit novel outsells my romance on amazon. To me it's the fun side of women's fiction - maybe it'll make a comeback!

Kathy, that's encouraging! Maybe it will make a comeback. Too many of us loved it. I'm just not sure I'm going to get to be part of the comeback as anything but a reader.
