Another day, another horrendously bad idea for a novel.
A novel I won’t be writing.
In honour of my continued non-participation in this year’s NaNoWriMo.
Although one person’s idea of a bad novel is another person’s idea of a ‘must-read’.
It’s all subjective really. There’s probably no such thing as bad or good.
It’s all just shades of grey…
Probably about fifty of them if we’re honest…
Which brings me onto today’s effort…
Basically it’s an unashamed rip-off of Fifty Shades of Grey, which is a book I’ve never actually read. Mrs Proclaims has read it. She described it as “one of the worst things ever written, yet strangely unputdownable”.
Which sounds like a recipe for success if ever I heard it.
And there’s no denying that it did quite well.
Obviously I can’t copy it word for word and just change the title.
So I’m going to copy it word for word, change the title and change the character of ‘prominent businessman’ Christian Grey (I got that bit off the blurb) to ‘prominent ice-cream van driver’ Walter Whippy.
Then I’m going to sit back and watch the money come rolling in…
