I saw Amanda mention she signed a book contract in another recent interview,
but here she saids what it will be about. (thanx NikosGr!!!)

What’s next for Amanda Palmer?

-I think I wanna be a bartender (laughs).

-Haha, that’s a Bob Dylan kind of answer.

It’s not a lie. I thought for a while about starting my own bar, but maybe then it would suck all the joy out of the work. So maybe just a bartender.I definitely need to take a break from the road, I’ve learnt that. I don’t know what I’m gonna do (pause). That’s actually bullshit, I do know what I’m going to do: I am going to write a book, I’ve signed a book contract. That’s why I have to write a book, and I think I will really enjoy that. I need to slow down a little bit, but I am going to write a book about the same themes as the TED talk. But more about art, about asking and about collision of art and money, and how difficult it is. It will be part memoir, part crowd funding manifesto. I think it should be really fun to write, cause I do love to blog, for which I have never been paid. In order to write, I need to slow down, because it’s impossible to write on the road. I just need to find a good place to go.

I look forward to it, but only so long as she gets her hubby to write the foreword.

Pfft!  Like your own writing, everything she puts on paper is poetry.

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

I like to write a lot on toilet paper.

I call it poetry in motion.
