crone-lit

Posted: September 9, 2008 in Uncategorized

My friend is about to embark on online dating, and it sets me thinking.
I read a lovely book A Round-heeled Woman – how I admired her for going after what she wanted.
And yesterday in the library I read about a female tv presenter who ended her 7-year ‘drought’.
Which gave me an idea for the Ideas Book: crone-lit. It’s like chicklit for the over-50’s. I thought about a kind of Mallory Towers 40 years on.
4 Marys (or whatever I choose to call them) meet up at a Friends Reunited reunion and discover they are all suddenly single and resolve to Make a Plan like they used to back in the day.
4 Gs and a Dog (like the Famous Five): Gerry George Goldie and Gabby.
there can be flashbacks to them at school.
I haven’t really got a plot but “When shall we four meet again?” …
maybe there’s one who is very innocent and virginal and needs to be educated in the ways of sex.
And one who’s been-there-done-that-got-the-piercing, but is nursing a secret hurt.
