The Daily Prompt: A Bookish Choice

A literary-minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions. Which do you choose?

I’ve loved the book series since 2002 and even up until now that I’m on my thirties, I’m still not over the Boy Who Lived. Its impact is so unprecedented it inspired a generation, it motivated countless other aspiring writers to produce their own written masterpieces, and stirred, and continuously stirs a worldwide movement on rejuvenating young people’s love for reading and literature!

On top of these influences, I admire the book’s take on some of the most important virtues the young should instill in themselves. My favorite, the power of choice.

Really, not only does Harry Potter give pleasure to millions (in fact, billions, tbh), Rowling’s work is admired and studied (not only by a few, mind you) for decades (I‘m pretty sure it’s going to be longer than that), not only because of the genius with which it was written, but by its positive effects to many.

So, No! I refuse to choose one of the two. Because I can choose to be both. And Harry taught me that. 🙂
