Mindy Kaling revealed she’s writing a new book, a collection of essays to be called “Why Not Me?”

The title “has kind of been my subconscious motto my whole life,” Kaling explained to the Los Angeles Times.

She said, “So much has happened between the time I published my first book and now,” rattling off, “The show; my mother passed away; so many of my friends have gotten married. I’m a godmother now, and a homeowner.”

“I can only fit so much into the show and have all this extra stuff,” noted Kaling.

“The Mindy Project” star’s first bestselling book of essays, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns),” was published in 2011.
