I was listening to the radio yesterday when someone was interviewing two women who write trashy novels. The novels specifically deal with ordinary women with ordinary lives and ordinary body shapes. The word chicktion came into my mind – a concatenation / bastardisation of fiction and chick. My wife thought it was an apt description and thought I should write it down somewhere in case I forget. Anyway, today I went onto Google and searched chicktion, and indeed there are a few hits, dating back to December 03. So, my word isn’t original.
