Day 27: If you were famous describe what you would be famous for, how you became famous, what you would do with your fame
This one is actually quite easy, I will of course be not only famous by critically acclaimed for my writing (if your gonna blow your own trumpet may as well use a full orchestra) I will have a string of best selling novels and short story collections several of which will have been adapted for TV and film ( no point going with half measures)
What would I do with my wealth and fame well of course I would look after my family and have a lovely home but there are a few causes which would also benefit, I would create a research programme funded to find a cure to cancer with the promise of a cash prize for the scientist who found it that pharmaceutical companies could not outbid without the tax man asking lots and lots of questions about the payment.
I would also fund a dogs home which I would get one of my friends Dave to run caring for dogs in their twilight years unlikely to be rescued by anyone from shelters. At my own home I would have a huge stable block where alongside the horses I and my family would ride would be rescue horses some of which would spend their remaining years out enjoying the pastures and others which would be rehabilitated and re-homed to the most loving, responsible families and stables possible.

I’ll help you fund the dog shelter from my earnings as a successful author as well, if we can go to Istanbul and rescue the “townies”, abandoned dogs with no owners that although they are vaccinated, tagged and fed are also objects of abuse by people with nothing better to do. They are dogs in the doghouse and don’t deserve the way they’re treated. Deal?
Deal I do believe that there is one that has already been started but it terribly underfunded and cannot save anywhere near as many as they would like
From the number of tagged dogs on the street you’d never know one had been started. The only place I know of that this doesn’t happen is Nisantası, a wealthier section of town that has community dog houses. I was surprised to see them, the size of them was impressive and how well built they were.
This is very exciting… I can’t wait to get started… !
Very cool what you would do with your fame and fortune.
Interesting the assumption that fame automatically includes wealth.
Neither wealth nor fortune are mentioned inthe question. My childhood ambition was to be ‘rich and famous’ writing adventire stories.
I would guess an amount of wealth would come with most types of fame if not from what actually made you famous then from the interviews, public appearances, tv appearances which would accompany it and possibly if you would also have influence with others with even more wealth to help make an dreams in terms of helping others come true
I wouldn’t want fame but I think if you are fortunate enough to be blessed in any way it’s important to pass it on
