I am trying to write a bestseller. Now don't get me wrong i am a deeply humble person. The reason why i am referring to my book as a bestseller is because i am writing to make a living out of it. I want it to be popular. Critics don't have to like it as long as it sells. People do have to buy and like it though. But i don't do it for the fame, because i am not sure my fragile self will withstand the pressure of being praised as a great writer when i am obviously not. I am a bad writer. I don't even have the basic tools to write. But i still want to! A for effort!
This is what i want to do: i want to create a story that is well-written and full of good ideas. I have lots of ideas, but i don't know anything about writing them. I will try to write in a way that shamelessly copies my idols yet sounds smart and original.
Speaking of idols, i realize you don't know anything about them yet. So here they are, my most favourite writers in no particular order:
Ursula K. LeGuin
Lois McMaster Bujold
Here are the writers i admire:
Trudi Canavan for getting rich
J.K. Rowling for getting even richer
