If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would be an author. Books change the world every day. Since childhood, I’ve found solace in books. They were friends when I was lonely and a world to get lost in when I was sad or hurt. The characters in the books I read became my friends. Instead of just being words on paper, the books became a whole world that I could see in my head with characters that I knew like they were old friends of mine. If I could only choose one career, being the creator of those worlds and characters would be my choice. An author can become a counselor, a friend and a mentor all by just putting pen to paper. I would like to see my books in a library one day and know that I could be the author that creates the escape for the next generation. I could change the world one lonely soul at a time.
