I’d really like to know more about you, my readers. If I didn’t want to connect with people through my blog, I’d be writing in a diary instead. So I thought it’d be fun if every Saturday we shared one random fact about ourselves. A sort of recurring get-to-know-you, I suppose.
Tell me your answer to this question in the comments below!
When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be…
… a famous singer in a band. I have a decent voice, and musical fame sounded oh-so exciting. In middle school I actually tried to start a band with my friends, only one of which was at all musically inclined. That did not last long.
Once I got old and jaded (you know, highschool), my ambitions re-focused on something only slightly more realistic: becoming a famous author. I wrote poetry for many years, only some of which survives today and only some of which does not make me cringe. Poetry is so much easier than novel-writing, which is what I really wanted to do. Poems can be short and nonsensical. But novels have to make sense and can certainly never be written in one sitting. Do I have the patience for that? Maybe when I grow up.
