DAILY PROMPT: A Bookish Choice
A literary-minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions. Which do you choose?
Dear friends, will you read my book?
It took years to write ,will you take a look?
Today I am writing for my passion to satisfy my quest of expressing my thoughts.I may get this cool urge of earning name,fame and admiration in future.
The moment I saw this prompt flashing on my screen I knew my answer right there.
Of course as a popular paperback writer I would like to connect to millions and contribute to the society by sharing my experiences,to bring smiles on sad faces and comfort minds slumped from fatigue.How about splashing some colour to otherwise mundane lives with my vibrant travelogues!
Equally rewarded would be to spread the message of love and humanity through my poems.
The dream to heal wounded hearts by giving the dose of positivity to millions and getting popular seems to be profitable and better.
It would be so much inspiring to be part of the real writers community who can write anything real under the earth. Books on motherhood, good parenting, successful career, honest confessions, friendship…..the list can go on and on…….
Right now the thought of being a novelist doesn’t excite me. I cannot visualize myself lost for years together in the fictional world, developing imaginary characters, drained out on emotions, haunting palaces, mysterious plots, revenge for betrayals, juggling for unexpected climaxes and finally….. looking for audience who buy, read and admire my literary masterpiece for decades to come. (My sister gonna kill me for this for she aspires to be a novelist.)
Presently I am busy creating my small sparkling gems. What about you ?
