Symphonee 6 years I'm with bengal, but I picked author because of the creativity involved J-Rabbit 6 years I think book critic would be more fun because you get to read many different books and write about them. As an author, you'd only write and re-write and revise about one or two a year. I think I would be sick of it after awhile. elishevahazel 6 years both are very interesting, but an author needs to be creative, and i like it cg130 6 years I'd love to be either, but I'd rather be an author. bengalspice 6 years I would rather be an editor. Spectra 6 years I'd rather be an author because it lets you be more creative. Being a book critic would probably be easier though...you don't have to actually write anything, lol! insanitypepper 6 years I think being an author would be cooler, but harder. I'd rather be the book critic.
