Instant Celebrity : Ken Follett

Instant Celebrity

If you could be a famous person for a day, who would you be? Why?

To be honest, I am happy as I am.  But, for the daily prompt, I have been thinking whom would I like to be for a day.

I did think of the usual movie stars and sports stars.  But, they held no attraction as such.  The movie stars must be putting on make up and being in front of harsh lights the whole day.  The sports stars put in hours of practice, exercise and follow strict diet in a day.

I also thought up of historical figures whom I can be for a day.  Maybe a Queen of some country.   Again, life seemed boring there.  What she must have done everyday of her life when she didn’t have to even lift a finger to do anything.

Then I thought of Authors.  I am assuming their life will be interesting. Imagine looking up many books for the detailed research.  Also spend time at the story locations to get a feel of things.   And then spending hours writing up something which the readers are waiting for with bated breadth.   Yes, I would like to be a famous author for a day.  I would love to be Ken Follett for a day as he writes on stuff which i enjoy a lot.   If you see his tweets, he seems to be having a blessed and relaxed life too.  That’s who I want to be.  Just relax, do your favourite things, be appreciated and earn tons of money!  C’est la vie!
