We’ve been meaning to settle down to write our book for years now but have only just gotten going properly on the initial stages of it over the last week or so.
Our working title is that of the original incarnation of this blog: Living in France without a TV crew. We figured that we needed at least a working title to focus our attention on what material would go into the book and what wasn’t really that relevant.
We’ve even got a very broad provisional structure:
- Choosing a place in France, of which we’ve nothing formally written yet;
- Moving in which’ll likely draw mainly on the articles here from 2004-2005;
- Some chapters looking in more detail at various aspects eg learning the language, education, etc.;
- Moving back, which raised more issues than you’d expect.
To see what we’d already written, I’ve been pulling together the relevant posts from 2004 through to 2009 which, even after loads of deleting, amounts to 322 pages and 180,000 words ie we’ve loads to work with.
