Not Really A Dream

I've never had a dream to be a writer before. To be honest I've never wanted anything. I thought about joining the military for a chance to travel the world and then I thought about working with marine animals or sharks. I've read about 5-6 books this past week. I don't know why but maybe I want to become a young adult author. It's nice reading books that also inspire me and to incorporate some of the author's styles and make my own (not copyright). I just want to be able to express myself in a way that makes people comfortable.

The books that I've read this week were fantastic. I felt each of the main characters pain and hurt. I saw how they see the world, I felt anger, sadness, loss, but then I felt love and every time I finish each book I feel a more profound feeling of respect and understanding to the people put into hard situations. I may not be able to understand them completely but I feel that I became closer to people like them.

Even though I'm going to be in AP english this year, my writing sucks or at least that's how I feel when I get 70s on essays requiring something. I guess I just have writer's block all the time. Now I'm going to start on the last book.
