Daily Prompt: BYOB(ookworm)

Write the blurb for the book jacket of the book you’d write, if only you had the time and inclination.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BOOKS.

 A short one today. Sorry about another late post also – I couldn’t get on one any sooner!

I have often envisaged a very peculiar scenario whereby I pick up a book, open it and find a screen of the movie on the first page. This happens when I’m choosing a new book to read in my head when I’m in bed, just about to go to sleep. I remember the first time when this happened – it was prior to me reading ‘Carrie’s War’, because I had seen the film just before. I remember going, in my imagination, to the bookshop and picking up the book, opening it up and seeing the movie on the screen.

I have often thought that writing an autobiography would take you so long, and therefore you would need to start it early(ish). However this would deprive you of living your life in itself! That being said I have often thought my life and my friends lives would, collectively, make an excellent sitcom. This is where my imaginary movie screen-book comes in.

The blurb would read as so:

Deep in the shadows of 21st Century Edinburgh, the Spraffer (the gaffer, the faffer) is stressing out. As Christmas draws nigh like a vulture circling in on a carcass, he finds himself to be broke (the poor sod), despite his ‘revolutionary’ ideas on self-sufficiency, and must resort to working over Christmas. With the struggling battle against democracy, insensitivity and Copyright breach over the Christmas holiday, this Spraffer has to overcome his fear of real-life and become one with his inner intellectual property agent.

I’ve been reading far too much ‘A Confederacy of Dunces’…
