Happy Harry Potter Day!
Because today is the opening day of the final Harry Potter movie, it only seems right to have a quote from J.K. Rowling! This is so simple, yet can be applied most universally to writing.
“I just write what I wanted to write. I write what amuses me. It’s totally for myself.”
~J. K. Rowling
If you don’t love what you write, the masses aren’t likely to either. Plus, if it amuses you, you get the added bonus of having a blast writing! And people will have a blast reading. Unless, of course, you’re very easily amused. Then uh.... I don’t know. Maybe don’t be amused so easily?
And since it’s J.K., we can have a second quote, right? Of course we can! We’ll do this one just because it’s SO DARN FUNNY.
“Death’s got an Invisibility Cloak?” Harry interrupted again.
“So he can sneak up on people,” said Ron.
“Sometimes he gets bored of running at them, flapping his arms and shrieking...”
~J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)
And because it’s only appropriate, instead of having cookies today, how about we share a chocolate frog?
So have you been to see Harry Potter yet? Hubby and I and a bunch of friends went to the 12:30am showing, so I crawled into bed at about three am. I’m [yawn] wow. A little tired this morning. But IT WAS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY WORTH IT!!
Have you seen the last Harry Potter yet? If not, do you have tickets?
And if you’ve already seen it, WHAT DID YOU THINK?! What was your favorite part? I’m dying to know.
