Although life presents many obstacles to success, careful planning and determination can push individuals to achieve their dreams. Since childhood, I have dreamed of writing novels to inspire young girls to take charge of their own lives, but a dream downgrades into a mere wish without deliberation.
In the 21st century, few can survive without a college degree. Even with a natural gift for literature, practice in advanced classes may point out flaws in style and eradicate weaknesses. However, a Bachelor’s or Master’s in English won’t guarantee immediate victory. After graduating from a university, I plan on working in a publishing company in order to gain knowledge and expertise in creating a book that will satisfy readers.
Although some may argue writing has no value, I intend on proving that novels for young adults can be both entertaining and instructive. By avoiding the tiresome clichés of reckless, overly hormonal teens and ridiculous love triangles, my books will teach young girls that they are quite capable of looking an Adonis-like boy in the eye and saying no. Unfortunately, literature has degraded over time, relying less on character development and profound themes, and more on shallow plots and questionable messages. It would be my dream to encourage readers to abstain from the excuses for writing currently residing on shelves and read books that actually require them to exercise their brains.
