If I were to choose my biographer, I would choose a famous writer or brilliant bloggers I know but not a celebrity. I will leave celebrities to acting even I know many of them can be reliable and great biographers. Or maybe after a famous writer crafted my life story and who knows my life is interesting enough for a movie then probably I can pick a celebrity to be me. 😀 (ok, today’s prompt really set me off in reverie.) 😀
However, let’s move on to my biographer, I think I would choose Terry Prachett, an English writer, as my biographer even though I quiver for sure in front of him while I tell the story of my life piece by piece. ( I am easily intimated by brilliant people, my weakness!) I wonder how he would weave words and humor about me. I am very impressed at how he describes events and people’s character skillfully. I have read his Discworld series novels and all of them make me laugh. He has a unique control portraying a personality or character through words. And I’m curious how he would describe or name me just like his characters in Discworld e.g. Corporal Carrot, Rincewind, the Witches etc.
I also like John Grisham. I wonder how he would arrange words to add a little mystery to make my lackluster life interesting. 😀
Those are my two most-loved authors that I would trust my life story with.
