Adele wants to pen a novel

Adele wants to write a novel.

The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker says one of her ambitions is to learn how to write a piece of fiction but admits she is unsure what the topic would be as of yet.

Speaking to the crowd at her Chicago concert, she said: "I'd like to write a book. I mean, I'm not very great at stuff like that but I'd like to learn and try to write a book. Fiction. I don't know what about yet."

But the book writing process could be difficult for Adele as she previously admitted she is only creative when she's "momentarily depressed".

Speaking about her post break-up routine, she explained: "I mope around for a little while. I do embrace the fact that I'm heartbroken. I don't move on quickly. I don't know if that's because it seems that I'm only really creative when I'm a bit momentarily depressed."

And fans hoping to get their hands on her novel sooner rather than later may be disappointed as it was recently reported the 28-year-old singer - who has three-year-old son Angelo with partner Simon Konecki - is due to sign a £90 million record deal.

An insider at Sony revealed: "We have secured the biggest music star in a generation. This is massive. Adele's deal with her original label XL expired and we'd an existing relationship with her in America. The deal is being worked on by our Columbia label in the US, but is worth £90 million and gives Sony the rights to release her future music exclusively around the world.

"Jonathan Dickens [her manager] has been putting it together for a couple of years. He was very aware of her worth in the market and stood firm to push for the £90 million."
