I think I was supposed to meeting Helena Bonham Carter this morning for a photo shoot. I lie not - but it was cancelled. I do love that woman, she is so strong and sexy and feminine and masculine. The women's charity Refuge have asked me to act as a spokeswoman for their Care and Control campaign: more on that soon... and Helena Bonham Carter is the celebrity launching it.
There was also the possibility of appearing on GMTV tomorrow morning - but after I spoke to the researcher, it seemed they pretty much wanted to (metaphorically) make me sit naked on a sofa on television. So I thought that wasn't a good idea and declined.
Much of the time I am at my desk writing, occasionally someone calls and asks me to do something cool, I get a bit giddy and then calm down.
In the past few months I had calls to appear on:
Possibly have my own reality TV programme
.... that didn't happen.
And on radio...
Mr J Vine
..... they vamooshed.
Although, I did manage to do lots of other really splendid things. When I figure out how, I'll post up some media stuff.
So I'm writing this new book Katy Sullivan, it's going well, I reckon. I want to tackle a subject I feel is still a bit of a silent taboo, and as I'm putting together my proposal and story idea, I wonder if even though this is something I want to write about, it could be badly received. Maybe it's just me... and that doubt is holding me back.
