For fun I thought I would write an updated version of the Beatles song Paperback Writer to better suit the aspiring authors like myself in the digital age. (FYI, slight fantasy slant because that’s what I primarily write).

Digital writer

Digital writer (digital writer)
Dear Sir or Madam, will you buy my ebook?
I worked real hard, will you take a look?
It's based on the crazy thoughts inside my head
And I need a fanbase, so I can be a digital writer,
digital writer.

It's a fantasy story of mighty men
Start it now and you won’t want it to end.
Kindle or Nook, you won’t need the mail.
It's a tough life if you want to be a digital writer,
Digital writer.

Hundreds of screenshots, give or take a few,
I'll be writing more until I’m through.
I really hope that you like the style,
If not, I don’t have to change it round because I’m a digital writer,
Digital writer.

Technology ensures I don’t have to give up the rights,
It’s a marathon, I don’t expect success overnight.
If you like it, please spread the word
I need a break so I can be a digital writer,
Digital writer.

Digital writer - digital writer
Digital writer - digital writer

And here’s the original song…

So, how bad is it? lol
