An Interrupted Life

Ted SimonFor some time now I’ve been working on an autobiography. I’m doing it mainly for the sake of my descendants who, like most young people, don’t think of asking questions until it’s too late, partly because they’re too busy, partly for fear of being bored, but also I think for fear of finding it rather embarrassing.

However, being a writer by profession, I can’t do this job without thinking of it as a book, and books need readers.

During the last months I have been following the example of writers more famous than me, by serialising it in weekly chapters.

I have withdrawn most of the previous chapters from the site, and just left a few for titillation purposes. I hope to have the whole thing done for the New Year (and about time too!) and will think about having it printed. I already have a few hundred names of people who said they are enjoying it, and if they were all willing to buy the book that would make it a reasonable risk to take.

I haven’t forgotten my plan to record it either. So if you have any words of encouragement I’ll be glad to hear them.
