Why I would like to become a Novelist/author.
  • Because I love to read and write.
  • I know a lot about story plots because of the many books that I have read.
  • Because you can work wherever you go all you need is a computer.
  • It feels really great and you feel like you have accomplished something and you feel proud.
  • And if you get lucky and write a really good book you could make a lot of money and be recognized. 
  • If I was going to be an author I’d probably have another job and just write whenever I had time. Authors don’t tend to make too much money. So you might need another job for support.
