Advice to Writers: Paul Auster

Becoming a Writer is Not a “Career Decision”

Becoming a writer is not a “career decision” like becoming a doctor or a policeman. You don't choose it so much as get chosen, and once you accept the fact that you're not fit for anything else, you have to be prepared to walk a long, hard road for the rest of your days.

I really liked this quote, it has some facts, being a writer is not something that should be made into a career full of money and power. A person should be a writer because they want to tell stories and entertain people with the universes they make up. I love writing because I love writing stories and I want people to read them.
