Can anyone tell me if Mr. Fry is working on a new novel?

Nothing novely that I've heard of. He is going to write a travel book about touring America in his cab though. If you're desperate for Fry fiction, he did write on Richard Madeley's blog.

Didn't he mention something about possibly working on a new novel in a few years on one of those programmes celebrating his 50th birthday? Maybe I'm giving myself false hope.

Just checked and, yep, he did say that maybe in September of this year he will be able to work on a new one.

But is Stephen not going to direct a film about Händel??

That man makes is pretty clear to me that I must be suffering from "poor time management syndrome"

I know what you mean. It makes me feel like I'm not using my time wisely enough. Not working hard enough!

Assuming direct control...

Know what you mean too - in management speak, we should perhaps not be working harder, but more smartly - which probably means I should be writing a novel or doing paperwork which sits beside me while instead I am reading and writing posts on here.....

Except we know that was fake, don't we . . . ?

That's what I thought too, maybe that's what he means by fiction

It was 100% true. I was disguised as the reindeer Stephen tried to milk.

Well, more like Whoever-Writes-"Richard's"-Blog fiction. Someone on LJ was trying to pimp it as completely real, and I had to tell her, "Dearie . . . "

If Fryphile says he's the reindeer, though, I may have to rethink this.
