Great Article regarding what chick lit is: http://fictiongroupie.blogspot.com/2011/10/is-it-chick-lit-or-womens-fiction-agent.html

Why do you think you novel is chick lit? Chick lit usually has a happy ending, (the main character lands a job, falls in love, accepts herself, etc) but it doesn’t have to.

Chick lit also has a more lighthearted tone. Think sex and the city.

Two great books about chick lit writing:
