Monday Music: Paperback Writer

Here's something for all of us doing something else when we'd rather be scribbling. I have hundreds of papers to grade. Will be reading until my eyes a-bleed. This song, as always will be playing in my head.

And in the song, the Beatles managed to describe my novel-in-progess: "..........It's a thousand pages, give or take a few, I'll be writing more in a week or two."

Just kidding.....sort of....



Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?.....
......And I need a job, so I want to be a paperback writer.....

..........It's a thousand pages, give or take a few,
I'll be writing more in a week or two.
I can make it longer if you like the style,
I can change it round and I want to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer.
If you really like it you can have the rights,
It could make a million for you overnight.
If you must return it, you can send it here
But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer.......
