After college, I want to be a journalist and a writer. I will be a journalist. It’s the “author” part of my career I’m not so sure about.

I’ve had an idea that I’ve been toying with for years, and it’s gone further than I ever thought any of my writing would. I just can’t help but compare it to others.

When I look at J.K. Rowling – or more recently Veronica Roth – I see a depth of detail and character that I feel I will never match. I don’t know why. I mean, I’ve got a great story going. But maybe my insecurity is what keeps me from writing on a regular basis.

I need some serious help if I ever want to get a book finished, which I do.
