What if you have been given a chance to choose a different path in life, if that happens, would you still continue your career as a writer or would you just make yourself a millionaire as an entrepreneur?
I have always had 'different paths' or jobs other than writing, but the writing goes on whatever else I am doing. Even if I was worth millions, I would still have to do something with my time and couldn't imagine not writing.
