This was asked for by Launna, who is perhaps the sweetest lady for always reading and commenting on my posts. She asked me two things and sadly, the first one was something I couldn't answer. But this one, is for her even though its not much of an opinion.
"Have you always wanted to write?"
No. Because it has only been 11 years since I started writing and that is not even half of my life.
I started writing when I was 14, giving up my doodles of outfits for words that weren't as superficial as drawing a dress that seemed pretty on someone with a perfect curve ratio.
I wrote extensively when I was 16-17, thanks to the world of fanfiction and Harry Potter. I ventured into original fiction while in college and since then, I never looked back.
If you ask me, the perfect career would be of me being a co-owner of a cafe that helps with the baking/cooking before retreating to sit at my favourite table with a tall glass of iced latte so I can work on my book.
I want to be a writer, I want to be read, I want to be quoted one day when I am no longer alive.
Wouldn't that be grand? To live in the memories of your readers? People who read those words you written a generation ago.
To live longer than physically possible.
