Ideas for a book that will make me famous
So I started to ponder, 'Hey - what's my story'? What's the aspect of my life that I could use to write a book and make my fortune (well, limited fortune anyway)?
I'm not a tiger mother. I'm not a mother who had an amazing career and then became a mother and then discovered how hard and undervalued it is (like this is some kind of radical concept) and then discovered she actually liked being a mother so only ended up working part-time (as a consultant of course) in her amazing career. I haven't run a marathon every day for a year (although most days feel like I have). I've only had one husband - haven't left him to go and 'find myself' in three different exotic locations and get my story made into a movie starring Julia Roberts. I still get on with my parents. I haven't climbed any mountains. I haven't been captured and made a hostage.
Yawn - all so dull. What's my money-making story people? I need help!
Otherwise I'll have to go and write fiction - perhaps I could write a book about an alternative life that would have resulted in me having a story to tell!
