Fry Will Shut Himself Away To Write Autobiography

British actor STEPHEN FRY is planning to step out of the spotlight this year (10) to concentrate on writing his autobiography.
The funnyman has struck a deal to write his memoirs, but he's adamant he needs "absolute peace, an empty diary and zero distraction" in order to put pen to paper.
Fry has scrapped all of his upcoming engagements, and even vowed to quit using blogging site Twitter.com in a bid to focus his efforts fully on his book.
In a post on his official website, Fry writes, "This is a sort of farewell. This morning I switch off most of my connections with the outside world, for I have work to do. I must deliver a book to my publishers by the end of April or my soul and testicles will be forfeit.
"Some people can write with ease in whatever circumstances they find themselves. I, unhappily, am not made of this material. I need peace, absolute peace, an empty diary and zero distraction.
"I have a single appointment in London towards the end of January and another in Barcelona a month or so later. Otherwise I shall be as one wiped from the map of human existence. This is how it must be."
