i started my own version of a book when i was in fifth grade. it was that long wait between GOF and OOTP. i had about 20 pages, but i lost it. and i was mad. i had gotten pretty far considering i was like...eleven. i just recently became more involved in HP fanfiction and i started writing some stories of my own. just to throw this out there, my fave site is www.mudblood428.com i love the story after the die is cast, its really long, but worth the wait.
