" It's early in the morning. My typewriter stands waiting for me on the table. Together, the two of us practise the art of writing."

In the first chapter of this book, we see Jakstein and his faithful friend, Snuf Blaffelaar, still sleeping for some last few minutes before their bedside alarm goes off with the noise of bells.

Getting down to it

Jakstein awakens and asks Snuf Blaffelaar how he slept.

And then he remembers something and informs Snuf Blaffelaar of it too, namely that Professor Toorneef, one of the lecturers at the university, will be giving his last class today.

Professor Toorneef always lectured Jakstein and his class in science and physics. Toorneef is a really, really bright guy.

Well, what would Snuf Blaffelaar care about things of the human world, thinks Jakstein and he decides it's time for them to get going.

Jakstein gives Snuf Blaffelaar food and fresh water, and then Jakstein sits down at his typewriter.

This typewriter is no computer, but at least it helps Jakstein write much faster. And legible.

Jakstein dreams that today is going to be the day he writes that masterpiece, the masterpiece that will open all doors to him.

Snuf Blaffelaar comes to sit on the sofa.

Jakstein decides to read some of his writing aloud to Snuf Blaffelaar.

And so, he starts reading his book to his friend. The book's name is "THE LION AND THE RODENT".

After a few minutes of reading, he stops. He realizes this is garbage, and discards it into the trash bin.

Well, it's obvious he's going to have to keep practising, and hope that one day, something inspires him to the extent that it forces his true writing talent to the fore.

Oh dear, he just realized he almost missed his class! He wants to see Prof. Toorneef for the last time.

He grabs his bag and heads off to college.

As soon as he's out the door, Snuf Blaffelaar is finally free to party!! See this story in movie form at: http://www.mooiflieks.com/eendag/0000015150i_dream_of_becoming_a_writer.html#movie
