MOLESKINE notebooks are perfect for creative projects that will never be completed, according to aspiring writers.
The UK’s wordsmiths confirmed that the elegant pocket books are best for writing novels, screenplays and rock operas that peter out after a few pages.
Marketing assistant Carolyn Ryan said: “I’ve always dreamed of being a less frosty JK Rowling but I couldn’t find paper exquisite enough to receive my genius.
“Now I’ve bought a Moleskine, I know I’ll fill a little bit of it with scribbled plans for my book about a virgin girl wizard who signs a bondage contract.”
A Moleskine spokesman said: “Whether you’re planning a novel, a memoir or a trilogy of hefty fantasy novels, Moleskine notebooks are perfect for jotting down those first precious sentences then realising it’s not going to work.
“Our new products actually have blank film credits printed on page nine, for when you get bored and start speculatively casting the big-budget movie.”
Fledgling screenwriter Stephen Malley said: “Moleskines are for amateurs. I’m not some credulous hopeful who believes that buying the right notebook will miraculously unlock their creative ability.
“Because I’m in this for real I’ve bought the latest version of screenwriting software Final Draft. Which will save me having to write any of the earlier drafts.”
