The Debut Dilemma
John Green is well known for his witty and dramatic novels.
Sarah Dessen for artistic symbolism and character development.
Rick Riordan for his breathtaking action scenes and cliffhangers.
So I guess it is only normal for me to plan what I want to be known for. Do I like to be the next J.K Rowling who would fill the JUV genre with magic? Or do I want to be like Stephanie Perkins who will create candy form novels?
I have become so obsesses of what kind of image I want to project inside the literary world that I forgot what the secret of writing is all about. Writing is a really painful job, but creating the characters and the world inside your mind is the best part of being a writer. Above are the book covers of my first two novels on Wattpad.com (click to see my profile). Those are two Contemporary YA novels, and I would really love to be known for being a Contemporary YA novelist. I would etch that oath to my brain to the point that I have forgotten that I have novel ideas for YA Action & Adventure genre, fantasy, dystopia, and so much more.
But what I have realize is no matter how hard writing is, it is the love that will make you stay forever. It is not the kind of job that will make me rich, but I am dreaming and reaching for it like it would give me fortune larger than Bill Gate or Steve Jobs could handle.
PS: My full name is Kurt Kevin Regis. I used to use Kevin as my author name, but now I am shifting to Kurt.
