Well wish me luck with the Talk tomorrow everyone; its going to be a long day – rather afternoon and evening to be precise. Anyway, thought I’d do a quick Blog as I really won’t much chance tomorrow or Friday. Having said that, I really can’t think of much to say tonight, so how do you write a Blog without being just plain boring?
There is one way I suppose, so here goes (and remember I’m taking a great ‘risk’ here with that Cat reading this!).
I was speaking to the guy earlier (one of the Talk organisers) and he reminded me I should really play up the ‘sex angle’ as bits of my current book referred to. I said I really didn’t want to go along that avenue too much, but I could – or would – answer questions about anything that I had written. And I will!
What worries me is where this could possibly lead. I mean they’re not older people – they’re all University students, for God’s sake!
I suppose one consolation is that ‘Cat’ won’t be there, being curled up in his basket in heaven – but even then, he manages to cause trouble (well, more embarrassment than trouble) if he spots anything published on Earth! It is being filmed by the way, so the possibilities of this are more than likely! (You only have to look at what his evil ‘Cat brain’ did with that ‘hot water bottle fetish’ thing if you don’t believe me!)
Anyway, although I empathised that I didn’t want to play on all the perceived ‘sordid bits’ too much, it seems that that’s what they’re expecting. I can’t really object in any event as they are selling my new book there.
I just got a telephone call from my friend D in Yorkshire. Thanking me for inviting him onto Twitter. I had to explain that I really hadn’t as such; my friend K had opened an account for me and just invited everyone at once! So I’ll have to figure out how to use “Twitter” now. But I’m not even going to attempt it at the moment with this Talk scheduled for tomorrow.
Its ‘relaxation time’ tonight.. Glass of wine or two will do me, then its just a question of getting a fairly early night.
So that’s it for now. Although I will still answer any comments that come in.
For the moment,
