The few of us who are lucky to see through the facade of life are drowning in debt and hoping for a day that we can be able to provide a decent living for our families. Positive role models are very hard to find and take the back seat to obscenities that capture and mold the minds of the one’s who will soon become this generations care-takers. I want to write books and give people what I’ve used to help keep my mind unique and positively influenced. Hopefully, a world where they would be completely and utterly submersed that takes away the harshness of reality and gives hope for something better. I also want to open a karaoke bar so that the night dreamers can pretend to be rock stars or the next American Idol winner.
My plan for my writing is simple. Well, kind of anyway. I hope to complete my degree in English so that I can enhance my writing and compositional skills. In addition to being a bibliophile, I’m also in the middle of my own novel. It’s in the young adult fiction genre and I’m 133 pages in. I’m very proud of it and hoping it does well when it’s published. For the karaoke bar idea, I plan to use the money I earn from my first book to fund it along with my education. My ultimate goal is to have a writing studio above the karaoke bar so that I can write during the day, and host during the night. They say if you find a career doing something you love then it’s not work at all. Some may think that my dreams are far-fetched but anything is possible. There’s this quote by a writer name Walter Mueller that goes: “The difference between visionaries and dreamers is visionaries make the dreams come true”.
