Why I want to be an Author

1. I can stay up until 1:00 or 2:00 am, and wake up at 10:00 or 11:00 every day.
2. I can stay home and watch Oprah, and Days of Our Lives.
3. I can live wherever I want. Move to the English countryside for a year? Why not! Spend the Winter in a Buddhist monastary? Go for it! I can write anywhere.
4. I get carte blanche for any eccentric behavior, because I am an artist.
5. My opinions will matter more because I am published.
6. My artistic reputation will give me an added air of mystery and will make me seem more attractive.
7. I can take advantage of the perks of vague celebrity.

Why do I think that any of this is a feasible possibility?
Because if Stephanie Meyer can do it, then honey, anyone can.

Um, those are awesome reasons. I will be happy to purchase your book(s) when they are published, Jenna. I love hearing your observations and stories!

I guess it all depends on what you publish, who publishes it, and how it's marketed... Your blog is a lot of fun! Fame within your circle of friends is nice too, right!
