From a famous writer or celebrity, to a WordPress.com blogger or someone close to you — who would you like to be your biographer?
I have two answers for this, they are two entirely different types of people and it is for two entirely different reasons.
1. Neil Gaiman: Aside from Roald Dahl my favorite author. I'm not certain if it's his sarcasm or the way he describes things but I feel he could capture my “essence” better than anyone. There is a way of explaining morbid while still being happy and positive and Neil Gaiman does it masterfully 🙂
2. Jack Osbourne: I admit that even I was a little put off when Jack Osbourne was diagnosed with MS. As horrible as it may sound I had a real “how dare he” moment. At this point I had known about my MS for nine years and I was upset that all of a sudden people cared about it because a celebrity had it. I had a change of heart one night watching Auction Kings. It's a long tear filled story, but I finally realized that even celebrities are blind sided by a diagnosis like MS. That's why I would like Jack Osbourne to write my story. I would just like to know what a newly diagnosed person would see in the life of someone who has been living with the disease for a while.
As a final treat follow the link below to one of the greatest commencement speeches ever given. Neil Gaiman delivers a speech that I think all college graduates should hear but especially anyone who plans to pursue a career in art of any sort.
