Question: BQ: why? I would like to meet Veronica Roth (divergent) or John Green (TFioS). I love their writing, they inspred me to start writing, and I'm addicted to their book, so I would like to talk to them. My third option would be Suzanne Collins probably, because she made me grow an interest in reading.

J.K. Rowling- Harry Potter series, she is a brilliant writer and incredibly successful. Keira Cass- Selection series, she took princesses and gave it a cool spin Rick Riordian- Percy Jackson series, Kane Chronicles series, Heroes of Olympus series, he took awesome mythology and turned into a real story I love Veronica Roth- Divergent series, she's just awesome and I love the world she created John Green- duh, he created Hazel and Augustus. That's all I'm going to say for this.

Winfrid Originally Answered: Can anyone be a book writer? (author)?
The likelihood of getting published is around the same as winning the lottery. Except it generally take years of practice, hard work, and dedication to get to that point. It also takes impeccable spelling and grammar, which based on your question, would be the first thing you should work on. Publishing is also an incredibly harsh business. If you can't handle harsh replies now, or use your age as an excuse, you won't make it. It's as simple as that. If you're serious about this, then you should start reading and writing as much as you can now. It'll take years to develop the skills you need so the earlier you start the better off you'll be. So start reading everything you can, good, bad, award-winning, various genres. Then start writing. Not just writing, but finishing entire stories and novels. Then start editing them. Because while writing a first draft can be hard, polishing it up is what takes the most time and requires the most dedication and effort.

I would probably want to meet JK Rowling. She really showed me that reading wasn't just something bored you did in school. It opened the doors to amazing stories and books and it really helped me understand what great thing reading is. Not only was Harry potter such a nice escape from reality and fun to read but I also connected with the characters and expanded my knowledge I would also love to meet Veronica Roth. I read her story way back and loved it. A novel that really inspired me to pick up some dystopian books and enjoy reading so much

I would love to meet either CJ Cherryh or Larry Niven, both sci-fi fantasy writers whose work I love. But I am already friends with CJC on Facebook; so there's that. :) * * *

Neville Originally Answered: What's the average salary for a published writer/author?
Authors don't get salaries. They write a book or a sample chapter and outline, submit it, and if a publisher likes it, then maybe it will be published. If the work is published, then the writer will get an advance, and possibly some royalties as well. Now, you do hear about the really huge advances now and then. However, these advances are only given to well-established authors who are incredibly popular. Most writers (something like 99 out of 100) need to have another source of income. And most of them take regular jobs, not just for the money, but for things like health insurance and other benefits. In fact, this is a fact of life for all entertainers. Only a very, very few can make a living from their art. If you go to Hollywood or New York, a great many of the food serving and other low level jobs are done by people who will tell you that they are actually actors. And most musicians have a daytime job, as well. Sure, there are superstars, but for every star, there are 99 burnt out cinders who never made it to stardom.
