366 Days of Writing Prompts – Day 71
If you could have any author –living or dead – write your
biography, who would you choose?
Well, I would say Stephen King, but my life isn’t scary enough (although maybe twisted enough!) for his creative mind. Or I could say Orson Scott Card, but I don’t think I am outer-spacey enough for him (nor religious enough – FYI: he’s a Mormon). So that only leaves my third favorite author who would probably get me really well: William Goyen. He wrote this book called The House of Breath that just completely blew me away. Very stream of consciousness. Tragic and deep. I think he would understand my life enough to actually tell my story in such a way that I would be finally and utterly understood by those outside of the art scene (art as in music, literature, art, dance, etc. – you know, the artsy people), especially if he wrote it like he did The House of Breath, but not like his later books – they weren’t very well received. I also think he would understand about my mental illness and how it has affected me and those around me. He would also understand the peculiar person that I am sexually, spiritually and emotionally. He was quite a sensitive person himself. Yes, if he were still alive, I would definitely want him to write my biography. I mean, if he could write so well about Jesus, why not about me? *smirks*
