Today is a very important day.
In honor of Harry Potter’s birthday, an ode to J.K. Rowling, my hero.
10 things I’d like to thank Jo for:
10- She can drop a troll with a single hilarious tweet.
9- Treacle. Treacle everything.
8- A trio of BFFs is truly the best.
7- I read books I Love twice, I have read every Harry Potter 8 times.
6- “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
5- World building. Period.
4-Her humanitarian work.
2- Ravenclaw motto (my house) “Wit beyond measure”..is a Shakespearian dick joke.
1- “Always.” Every human emotion in a single word.
Even if you’re not an HP fan, as a writer I encourage you to look up J.K. Rowling. She is an amazing human being, humanitarian and her success story is so inspirational. Her journey inspires me not to give up, even though it would be so easy to do.
Happy Birthday Harry!
