I Want To Be Just Like...
Yeah- I'm back in the game, baby! All other bloggers go to sleep because I'm awake now :) Okay, I'm done with the trash-talking. My besties over at YA Highway have posed a wonderful question- which author's career would I want to emulate??? Do I have to choose just one? There are a lot- but if I have to narrow it down I would say that I have to give props to the lady that has created one of my obssessions- Suzanne Collins. I would love to create something so unique as The Hunger Games Trilogy- it's just one of those ideas that you wish you came up with. And there is a movie in the works, which combines the two of the things that I love!
And I have to shout-out another favorite of mine- the incomparable Joyce Carol Oates- especially since I just found out that she writes YA too (Freaky Green Eyes). It's kinda what I want to do- YA and then some creepy adult books that make you wonder and dream about - (ie. Zombie). Oates has so many novels under her belt and they are very effective and interesting- all about topics that some may consider taboo. I am completely and utterly intrigued with dangerous and taboo topics and books and I want to end up writing novels just like hers!
I want to know all about the author's careers that you want to have too- share with me :)
