Writing and Me
It's funny how every person as a child had the desire of being a firefighter, a princess, a pirate or a rockstar. (Oh wait, so did I!) An author however is somewhat... let's say different. They still have the desires to be what they see on TV or during everyday life. As I see it, writers are in tune with their imagination, their dreams, their fantasies, and their need to strive and stand for more than just a crummy job at Culver's or Fed Ex, or your local grocery store.
Some say that writers are different from the next person within the crowd; that they are weird and close to schizophrenia. (Trust me, I've heard this...) They can say that we can't survive and make it as "Just a writer". Look at Stephen King. His mind is one of the most darkest, various, and emcompassing of thoughts that anyone has ever encountered. Look where he ended up? What can I say? He's kind of weird, but he's my idol. He took his dreams, and made what he had into what's been read globally. He is world wide known. Even some of his books have been turned into movies.
