The Writing of the Books

by Megan Frampton on September 17, 2013

manganielloWhat Not to Bare comes out October 14, less than a month from now, and YAY! and WHEE! and other exclamatory noises.

My agent has a few new proposals for both my Megan Frampton and Megan Caldwell personae. We’re figuring out what to do with them, and I hope there will be news soonish.

Meanwhile, my son is a freshman in high school, is taller than me, and is already frequently embarrassed by me. Parenting, I am doing it right.

My day job at Heroes and Heartbreakers is going well–I love my work, I am so lucky to have this job and work with the people I do. They are all awesome, and I actually like going to work everyday. Not something everyone can say. It doesn’t leave me a lot of time for other things–well, besides the essentials of reading, embarrassing my son, drinking wine, and watching historical miniseries–so I’ve been busy and sometimes stressed about how little I seem to be doing when I am not at work. But it’s a good kind of stress to have, I think.

Today was the first day in over four months I’ve had to wear socks. I am sad about summer being over, but then again, there are fall sweaters, so I assuage myself with that thought. Plus cute socks are cute!

Thanks for stopping by!


(The hero of the thing I’m working on now looks like Joe M. here, above).

Hey Megan…your photo of Joe M caught my eye. I am headed to the Yale Rep Theater on Sat night to see him in “A Streetcar Named Desire” possibly the most depressing play ever written, but the expectation of JM stalking around the stage in a wife-beater for two hours (in addition to the compulsory “Stelllllllla!” moment, outdone forever by Elaine on “Seinfeld,” but I digress…) has me pretty excited. Row 11 still means we’re breathing the same air, me and Joe…”The Paradise” starts on Masterpiece Theater on Oct 6th…I hope you’ll be tuning in….

Kate, that sounds like fun! Even tho it is, of course, an incredibly depressing play. But it’s written well, and Joe in a tank–whew! I am guessing he will have the acting chops to pull it off, too.
In fact, I very much wish I could see it. Drat.
