Taylor Swift may be a chart-topping superstar these days, but when she was younger she had a rather different career in mind!
In an interview posted on Examiner.com, the 23-year-old starlet reveals that after her family relocated to Nashville in 2003 she had an "epiphany" and decided to become a writer.
Swift explained: "All my friends were back in Pennsylvania and so I had nothing to do. I had this epiphany; I’m going to be a novelist and I’m gonna write novels and that’s gonna be my career path.
The I Knew You Were Trouble singer continued: "I would write different chapters of this book and send them back to my friends and I’d write them into the book under different names but totally describe their personalities. It was a really fun way to spend the summer.”
Although Taylor never followed through on her dream of becoming a novelist, she was able to channel her talent with words into her current career as a singer-songwriter.
T-Swizzle added: "You can convey a thought or a story or completely describe a character or a situation through words and the whole process of editing and re-editing and rethinking and imagining.
"I think that that’s what I loved about writing the novel and that’s what I love about poetry and songwriting.”
Taylor is currently on the road with Ed Sheeran travelling the States with her Red tour.
