By: Kaitlyn Martin
AUTHOR Will this job require you to travel a lot? What part of the country or world is this job in high demand? There is a high demand for young-adult fiction in Hollywood (Hoping for people like authors of Harry Potter, Twilight, and the Hunger Games) Amount of training needed before you reach the full salary The amount of training needed to reach a full salary isn't really set because you earn money based on the books you write so it all depends on how well you write Average salary- taking in consideration of living costs, can you make it based on that salary? Is it commission? wage? tips? The average salary for a creative writer isn't set at a certain amount because they get paid by the books and the quality Considering this wont be my "main" job I will be fine because I would have to get a regular job to support myself and then become an author. What Universities that offer the degree? What skills do you need to develop at DECHS to be successful in this career? What weaknesses will you need to overcome to work in this field? Can this job lead to another one that is “higher up” or pays more? Does your dream career match the quiz that we took with Mrs. Wilson? What are some of the expectations of people in that career? What is your backup career in case your #1 choice does not work out? Do you know anyone that has your dream career? Are you passionate about this career? Is it something that you enjoy doing?

Work Cited Inspiration I was inspired to write as soon as I learned how how to make a sentence. I would write short stories all the time and my teacher would "Publish" them around the room. I really loved how I could decide how things happen and that the "world" in my stories could be whatever I wanted them to be. It was the only way I, the antisocial and awkward kid I was, could express myself. The setting for this career could take place mostly inside or somewhere with internet connection and a laptop available. It wouldn't be a requirement to travel, but because traveling can give inspiration and help writers overcome writers block, I would like to travel to help with gathering ideas and writing better. I need to develop skills in:
Reading comprehension
Active listening
Critical thinking
Active learning
Learning strategies
Monitoring I need to overcome my weakness of computer because I would have to type all my books up and do a lot of research. Well it cant really lead up to a higher job but you can get better and earn more money for a book I didn't get that job in as one of the suggestions but It did match the personality type The expectations for an author is to write. Depending on if they get paid to write a book or paid after a book determines if they need to meet deadlines. My backup career is to become a Psychologist. No, I don't know anyone with a career of an Author or a Psychologist. I am passionate about this career and I LOVE writing and creating stories I really enjoy it and I haven't even become an author yet. No, I will not write a story about you.
