Someone once asked me who I would like to be if I could be someone famous. They were dreaming of being rich and famous themselves.
While I wouldn’t say no to being rich, I’ve never really aspired to being famous. It just seems to be too much trouble – having the media constantly watching you and not able to pop down to the shop without a bodyguard has an air of the ridiculous about it – in my world anyway!
The question itself is hypothetical and anyway, shouldn’t we all be happy with our own lives? … hmm
But my subconscious must have been secretly evaluating the question because just recently I realised that there is one person I would like to be. And, strangely it doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that she’s a billionaire – although that would be very nice of course – but more to do with who she is and what she represents.
I’m talking about JK Rowling.
Her creativity, imagination and writing expertise is phenominal and on those days when inspiration has vanished in a haze of everyday worries and uncertainty, her books have helped me find that nugget of self-worth and confidence that I need to develop my own writing skills.
So thank you for all the wonderful stories you have shared with the world JK!
Who would you like to be? And Why?
