I'm Writing a Book About Rocket Science!

Yep, I've made up my mind, I'm writing a book about rocket science and I'm quite sure it will be a best-seller! Does anyone here know who I should contact to ask for an advance for this book? I think several million should do it; what do you think, am I selling myself short? No, to my friends here, you haven't missed anything! I know absolutely nothing, zilch, zero, NA-DA about rockets or science! What does that have to do with me writing a book on the subject, anyway? If the mother of Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears can write a book about parenting - Christian parenting, no less - why can't I write a book about rocket science? If someone can give me a good reason I'll give up my dream, but at the moment I can think of none... Uh-oh...her book has been put on hold??? Why in the world would that be? Annie

Be sure to contact your local "the onion" articles for accurate information on rocket science. Oh yes and really you have to put a bonus on this book about rocket science. I mean we have the net, blogs, forums, science books past and present... Annie, you need something...extra. I believe a chapter on how to build a "loaded"(live/explosive) rocket would help. Come on... :D And about Ma Spears' book being put on hold, all I have to say is this. "Hah!"

I'm sure you were just "dying" to get your hands on this book but now we're all going to have to wait. Thanks for your tips on my upcoming best seller! I won't forget to give you the proper credit for it either. Annie

I must say parenting is a difficult issue to write on. It certainly isn't cut in stone, there is nothing clear about it and what works for some children doesn't work for others. On the other hand you can have a bad parent turn out good kids or a good parent turn out bad kids. It just isn't something that works well for most people to write on. Those that usually make money writing on the subject do so from some sort of viewpoint that makes it a seller. Pediatrician, religious leader, Ph.D. in child psychology...We really have no idea what kind of a parent Lynn Spears is...We just know that since her daughters are in the public light it doesn't look good. Some my look at me and think...wow she has never done anything wrong or bad (that most people know about) her mother must have done something right. Of course when my younger brother was in jail for robbing a rehab center...most people that saw him thought that his mom must definitely have done something wrong.

You're right, it's not fair to judge a parent necessarily. There are plenty of bad kids who had great parents and vice versa so I really shouldn't put Mrs. Spears down so much, I suppose. However I will say there are quite a few celebrity parents who have made some common mistakes. It just seems like so many of these child stars are allowed to run wild and they never really experience a normal childhood or adolescence. For the record, although it's sad that a 16 year old girl is pregnant, I don't think that's the worse that could happen to a young girl and it doesn't mean she doesn't have a good mother. I started this post because it struck me as ironic that Lynn Spears would be writing a book like this to start with, given all the recent bad publicity Britney's gotten, then her younger daughter announces her pregnancy and the book gets pulled for the time being. Oh, no, now I'm feeling guilty for criticizing a mom who I'm sure had her heart in the right place all along...Sorry! Annie

HaHa! I say go for it...after all I am also about to sit down and start one on nuclear physics. It should be completely doable and I bet will have just as much expert information as Lymm Spears' parenting book. And since hers has been put on hold I'll have the advantage of getting my bok listed in the top spot of the "listening to idiots" section of Barnes and Noble...oh they don't actually have a section like that? Weird, I was sure that's where they put all the other books written by celebrities about real life.
