a happy ending

Maybe it’s my age – I’m 19 – but if could write a novel it would likely be a coming-of-age novel. One that’s just about learning how to grow up, fit in, and accept yourself for who you are.

The novel would be about exploring new things and my character would be really innocent like Charlie from The Perks of Being A Wallflower. It would definitely have a happy ending and I would want to include a road trip in which I could find out a lot about myself and the world.

Of course, there would also be an awesome soundtrack if it was made into a movie. My character would make mixed tapes.
