Reasons why Fran will be kept busy and off the streets for the foreseeable
No, it's not biscuits.
No, it's not cheesecake.
No, it's not sherry trifle.
No, it's not a bag of chips.
It's NOT food. Honestly, does no one feed you lot?
Keep thinking ....
No, it's NOT a lottery win. More's the pity.
No, it's not a wise thought. I mean, since when ....?
No, what I have to share is a bit of recent news.
As you know, I am a very modest, self-effacing individual, so I will say it quietly ....
I am going to be a Proper Published Author!!
Yes, it's true. Someone has actually agreed to take something I've written and turn it into a Thing One Can Put on a Shelf. (After reading it, of course.)
As you know, this will be my second book. The first one, 'Being Miss', I published myself on Kindle and in paperback. If you've read it, I hope you enjoyed it :)
So, the details about the next one. The kind publisher is SPCK and the book will be called 'Miss, What Does Incomprehensible Mean?' It'll be a memoir in diary form - think Bridget Jones crossed with Adrian Mole crossed with Gervase Phinn crossed with every harassed teacher you've ever known - and will cover a year in the teaching calendar.
There's one slight hitch. I've only written the first two weeks' worth of diaries and now I have to write the rest. So, it'll be published some time in 2020.
If you've got to this point and you're now thinking, I'd much rather it had been cake or a bag of chips, I do apologise!
Better get writing ....
|Fran was determined to get on with the book, as soon as she could extract the quill which was firmly stuck between two of her teeth and had been for a number of hours|
