Women's Fictionfeminist writing
Fiction is a generic concept for women-centered textbooks that concentrate on the experiences of women's lives, which are sold to feminine readership and contain many mother -of-pearl-romances. This differs from women's literary work, which relates to literary work composed (and not sponsored) by them. There' s no similar fiction brand in English that is sold to men.

Well, what do we mean when we say women's literature?
For the first people who called my novel "Women's Fiction" - the less infantilising word for "Chick Lit" - I was dying a little inside. is that most of the textbooks I study are about girls. and the intrigues of relationship and family. All I do is browse obscure, complex fiction and I am a keen, fun reader of comercial fiction.
In nine out of ten cases, these are ledgers that have been typed by mothers. However, there is something about women's fiction as classics that, because of their topic, are usually not serious enough to be of interest to men. We know these ledgers as our readership when we see them. There is something about the way these ledgers are sold that says that the pages inside are destined to be lightly consumpted, that they may be cleverly spelled, but the readership itself will not be forced to think.
There is something vague misogynist.... no, scrape that, there is something openly misogynist about an entire class of textbooks whose main commitment is not to rock the whole wide web as the readers already see it. Those are comfortering or at least convenient ones; they fit the tales that have always been telling us who is good and who is not.
Most of what surrounds us, as a woman, is a kind of lesson. None of the two main figures in my own novel is particularly "good". It was a love story I was afraid would be a little clumsy. Cause I want to give a diploma to women's literature.
There should be an educational value, at least at a certain stage, about how you are a girl or how you are never a girl. There is a shortage of morally ambiguousness, as if the reader could not find out the problems and mistakes of the people. Most of what surrounds us as females is a kind of lesson.
There' s the fame of tabloids for going through the entanglements of another woman's rift. There' s the small band of females considered pretty, and then there are the memories that what matters is inside, although it's especially important for those of us who are less spiritually gifted that we make sure that our inside really sparkles - not shrill or bossy, not a stupid blond who only takes care of footwear (PS see page 52 for these times of the year Must-Have shoes!).
There is also educational fun for girls. There is something inside of us, and when we repair it, we are recompensed with the loving that says to us, yes, we have value. Our female preoccupations in Women's Fiction are specifically "female". Of course, they can be awkward or have a whole series of shallow bodily shortcomings that make the character more usable - a few quid more, a bad taste for class.
In the ideal case, these personalities should at least think they are simple, because is there anything more beautiful in a female than a loss of self-confidence? Of course, as is so often the case with females, they can be destroyed by some kind of traumatic event. The title-giving Bernadette of Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette? is one of my favourite figures in recent Women's Fiction, but there is a subversivity in the way Semple researches the Trope.
Bernadette enjoys her malice at the beginning. She is blamed for walking over another woman's feet at university and says: "I'd be laughing at the whole thing, but I'm too insipid. It is an uncommon restraint for a feminine character, but what really distinguishes Bernadette is the way she tramples.
But Bernadette doesn't come home to find herself, as these figures so often do. Instead, we are learning that Bernadette herself is missed at home in many ways. Even more submissive is the injured lady who never overcame. Rotert follows the laws of women's fiction to give us the likeable Sophia, Naomi's ten-year-old girl, who stands herself in her own wing as her mom enters the stage: "That was me.
But like Bernadette, she is ambitious, but unlike her, Naomi's ambitions are to have enough of it. Theresa Rebeck's I'm Glad About You reveals the way the heroine Allyson is living - not the glamor of her ascending career, but the expectation of a woman - in terms of appearance, slimness, sexability.
In contrast to the traditional powerful protagonist, who is immaculate in the face of a dirty and dirty life, Allyson encounters these aspirations and deals with them to get what she wants, sleeps with a renowned filmmaker, wears the clothes he sent her, clothes that make her look "like a hooker and a goddess".
Fiction, all fiction, should defy and broaden our empathy, not just strengthen the same beliefs, the same set of principles. It is a lovestory in which there is no merit or value in it. What I want is a lovestory that doesn't deserve to be loved and doesn't convey value, where it's just humans, those who have emotions and then try to find out where it' s not the end price of winning by being good.
One of the main flaws of my novel's main character is that although she is an intelligent lady and a female figure, she is still fighting (and loses the fight against) with internalised isogynia. She' s ingested most of the message about how you are a girl in the whole wide oceans - how you are pretty, how you are thin, how you have value.
Neither of us does it, and it wouldn't make any difference if we did, because there is no way out of punishment for being the kind of girl you end up choosing. It' fun, we often ask that questions about character. If we ask why a girl, we think, what's her apology?
I' m sick of having to have an excuse for it. And all these orders, every single working person, every single moment: That's the way to be a girl, no, that's not it, that's not it. I' m not talking about how to be a girl in the whole wide universe. I' d like to speak about the worid in which we girls are.
More and more of the titles I read, titles by men and titles for men, are becoming more and more ambiguous, making their feminine characters people rather than heroes. If that'?s the way we're going in Women's Fiction, then I'm in.
Since I mainly writes for girls, but what I don't agree with is that I have to lower the staff for them.
