PLEASE ANSWER THIS QUESTION I AM STUCK

Okay, so basically when I get older I want to be an author. I am trying to write a book now and have some sort of idea what it is going to be about. BUT...

I know a lot of writers don't earn a lot of money at first even if they work really hard. I do have other choices for future careers but being an author would be my dream. I am really stuck. And I know it's a long way away but STILL. Anyway, please answer. Love you all

I think writing early will be better, because you can develop what you are writing earlier, which means you can sell it earlier= more money. Never give up on your dreams!

You can't write a good book in a few days. Take your time on it! While you're thinking about this book you want to write, you should be reading books when I say books I mean anything you can get your hands on.

Well if you read about psychology it will help you connect with your characters! When being able to connect See More▼

I want to be a writer too! What I'm doing is just writing whatever comes to mind and good ideas and stuff. And instead of just being an author, I want to go to school to become an English teacher. I can teach during the week, and write over the weekend and summer break! That way even if I don't get published right away, I still have a steady income.
