Daily Prompt: When Will I Be Loved?

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/when-will-i-be-loved/

Have you dreamt of becoming famous? What would your claim to fame be? Comedy? Acting? Writing? Race car driving? Go!

—————–

Since I was a child, I always wanted to become a writer. I remember when I started thinking about it. It was when I read a book on a young female teacher of a school on a very small island in Japan. I remember how the author was described in the afterword to the book. I dreamed of how I would like to be described as an author in my own book.

 

In Japan, writers often put an afterword to their book rather than a foreword, preface or introduction before the text. In translated books, the translator often writes an explanatory afterword to the work.

 

Back when I was a student, there were many young authors who liked their lengthy afterword, not just about the book, but also about what they were doing. Just like they were writing a letter to their fans.

 

So I often thought how I would like to write in my own afterword, sometimes mimicking my favorite writers. And even thought what I would say in my first interview, haha!
