Daily Prompt: A literary-minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions. Which do you choose?
Yes, you read it right — a witch. Not a typical one who had once poisoned Snow White with an apple. And of course, not your filthy stepmother or your strict, toxic professor.
Then, in a flick of her glittery wand, she turned me from a frustrated novelist to a successful one. She gave me two choices; the first is to make me an obscure novelist whose works are being studied in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the second one is to instill in me a writer of books that will inspire thousands of wizards, including Harry Potter.
Which one will I choose? The second one, of course.
Honestly, if I pick the first option, there’s a little chance to earn money … and I never wanted to be studied by scholars. Meanwhile, I always wished to be an inspiring young novelist to millions of readers, and I wish to earn profit from my writing as well.
Thank you, bookish witch then. I hope you won’t send me a curse for this great favor.
