Q: Which would you choose? Fame or fortune?
-from Susan, who is a Gemini and therefore unable or unwilling to choose
A: Artificial dichotomy.
A#2: Why do I have to choose?
A#3: Define ‘fame’ for this mid-list author.
Fame = Someone - one person - told me I looked a little like Princess Diana
A#4: Can fortune be defined as enough money to live on until I die?
A fortune is in the eyes of the beholder....
A#5: I notice the conditional in the question, which suggests the questioner doesn’t think I’m likely to have to make this decision.
A#6: Let me go back to daydreaming I could make a fortune by becoming an author famous for my French village mysteries, debuting in 2017. A girl can dream, can’t she?
