I Want To Be A Writer

When I'm old, I want to look back on my life and think, I actually made a difference.

I want to be remembered as someone who followed her dreams.

I want to be happy, and I want to be able to do what I want to do.

When I leave school, or possibly before that, I want to be an author or a scriptwriter for TV and films.

I want to be famous, but not for the money, even though it would be nice to have some. I want to know that even if I only live once, I won't be forgotten, because I think my biggest fear is dying without achieving my dreams. I'll have to try incredibly hard to get where I want to go, and I am prepared to do that.

As J. K. Rowling once said, "I want to be remembered as someone who did the best that she could with the talent she had."

I know, you WILL be an author if you put your mind to it! I feel exactly like that with acting! Maybe you could write and direct screenplays, staring MOI!

BOTH! If you want to be an author you will, no matter how good you are. You don't even need to be published to be an author so you already are! I think yu should finish your short stories then expand them to make big awesome books! @b00kw0rm99 Maybe change 13 hours to 24 hours and have 24 chapters. I will buy it if you get it published and tell all my friends to!

I know that you can do it, based on the creative writing you've written.
