611. Rejoice!

© Bruce Goodman 13 June 2015


Rejoice with me! Rejoice! A major film company has just signed a multi-million contract with me to make a film out of one of my novels!!!!!!

I can now afford to buy a house. It’s the security it gives, isn’t it? I won’t have to worry about where the money’s coming from to get the week’s groceries.

And I’ve always wanted a grandfather clock. So that’s a priority! I can see; already I’m getting my priorities wrong! There’s no good getting a grandfather clock until I’ve got the new house, otherwise it’ll be something else that has to be shifted. Oh! But I forgot! I’ll get a removal company to do all the work!

Today my wife and I are going out to look at clocks in the clock shop. And we might even survey what properties are currently on the market. We’re not even sure if we’ll continue to live in the area.


Just one further thing I want to say, and please read it carefully. I was just saying the same thing to the wife. It’s such a shame that I only ever ever ever write fiction.

    But that is fantastic news! Means you can have at the fictional clock of your dreams. I’d go for the one out of Tom’s Midnight Garden, or maybe the one that may or may not have been wound up while Tristram Shandy was being conceived. Their value is beyond rubies and they keep fictional time which goes just as fast or slow as you want it to.

      My word – you have been busy reading my stories today! Thank you. And the novel – do not feel bad if you dislike it or can’t get into it. It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea.
