Dreaming of writing...

They say everyone has a book in them. I think that's true. More than one in most people's cases, but how many I us have the time to do it?

I certainly DON'T have the time right now, but I'd still like to give it a go. And I'm not on my own. My Mum fancies in on it! And that is an idea that excites me! The thing is that me and my Mum have very little in common. We are very different people with very different interests. She's practical, well read, deeply interested in history. I'm creative, but flighty and find I hard to retain knowledge that doesn't thrill me. But we do have one thing in common which always gets us laughing and giggling like school girls who found a bottle of wine. Our ex partners!

For her it's my Dad, and the rediculas way he behaved through out their marriage with multiple mistresses. Follow that with the insane way he handled the divorce, and his continued bizarre behaviour once my Mum started to move on with her life.

For me it's the ex fiancรฉe ( from my pre-blogging days ) and his delightful timing for "outing" himself before embarking on a career as part of a sequinned song & dance troop on national television.

Think we have some reasonable material? The thought of working on this with my Mum excites me. I've wanted to write a book for years - since my teens if I'm honest. But I've always been put off by the pressures of trying to get published. Whoohoo for eBooks and self publishing! We don't need to make a fortune, we just want to have some fun and share our stories. I know there will be some very cringe worthy moments for both of us, but I think it will worth it! The very thought of having a fun project TO DO WITH MY MUM thrills me! I just need to work out how we're going fit the story planning and writing in around our lives....

Watch this space!
