Be An Author
You know becoming an author isn't a happy walk in the park. You know you'll have to hold down a day job to make ends meet, and you know the hours are crazy, because, well, you have to write a lot to get any good. You also know all about agents vs self-publishing. You know it's not easy, but you're not doing it for the recognition anyway. You're doing it because you love writing. So go follow that dream! Who knows? You might be the next big author one day. . .

Be A Hobbyist Author
Alright, so you know full well most authors never really get famous, or rich. And frankly, you aren't about to gamble on a career. Instead, you much rather opt for something practical, something safe, and write novels on the side, which is fair. So, do that! Write whenever you want and self-publish as you see fit. Do it because you want to, not because you expect anything from it.

Not Be An Author
You are not ready to be an author. And honestly, you just might not be ready ever, which is totally okay! It's a hard path, and certainly not one many people succeed at. You're either on cloud 9, thinking being an author is this glitzy, glamorous thing, which it isn't, . . . or you're very inexperienced, which means you'd get eaten alive in a room full of writers. Best leave the dream there, in dream form!
