It seems the writing of Courtney Love's memoir isn't quite going to plan. The 'Hole' singer has described the writing process as a "disaster" and a "nightmare" and says it's "just not happening". In an interview with Paper, the 50-year-old star said, "It's a disaster. A nightmare. I never wanted to write a book in my entire life. It just sort of happened. And I have a co-writer, but it's just not working." She also has some strict stipulations about what is revealed in the book. "One of my rules about the book is that it has to stop in 2006," she says. "What happens from 2006 on in the book is my personal business. I've been discreet from that time on, and I want to keep it that way." Whilst the star recently poured cold water on rumours of a reunion of her band Hole (the last Hole LP was released in 2010) she now seems open to the idea. She is optimistic she will join bandmates Eric Erlandson, Melissa Auf der Maur and Patty Schemel for a reunion next year, although she says they won't do the 'oldies circuit'. "Me and Melissa and Patty and Eric have rehearsed a few times. In order to pull that off, we'd have to make some music that's relevant to now, and we'd have to get a modern producer," she revealed. "I'm not going to do the oldies circuit. My relationships with Melissa, Patty and Eric are all great. At this point in my life, no one is my enemy. Any grudges or issues with that past? I'm done with it."
