Bio:
Emmy Chahal for CBC, Canada. - I was just wondering what the most valuable piece of advise you would give to an aspiring writer?

JK Rowling: Read as much as you can, I think that there is nothing as important, because that will really show you what makes good writing in your opinion, obviously it's very subjective. You will probably go through a phrase when you imitate your favourite writers and I think that is necessary and a good learning process.

After that, you just have to accept it takes a phenomenal amount of perseverence and the people who deserve to make it ... you probably will not like 90 per cent of what you write, one day you write a single page you like and build on that.


Hi, I'm a young writer here.

Those are J.K. Rowling's own words, everyone. For me, it may be a bit dificult to follow them, as excited as I was to find out that my absolute favorite writer of all time gave me adivce.

1) Read as much as you can. Check.

2) Go through a phase imitating your favorite writers. If fanfiction counts, then, infinite checks.

3) Perservere...... well, I don't think I'd live if I tried not to write. =)

4) You won't like 90% of your writing, so write a page you like and go from there. Haha, so true. That's why reviews matter! ;) They give you self confidence.


I really love the Harry Potter seiries, but I love Mugglenet's Fanfiction even more.

I have way too many favorite characters, but I especially love Lily Evans and Lily Potter. (And Neville, who goes without saying).

The only ships I don't support is Hermione/Draco, or Ginny/Draco. I personally think Draco would be better off living alone and childless. I know that sounds.... a bit.... mean, but Draco, I think, is generally a bad person, despite his reasons for acting bad.

About Snape: I recently went to Potted Potter a parody by Dan and Jeff, and they asked the crowd if Snape was good or bad. I embarrased myself by shouting 'Bad'.

However, I wholeheartedly agree that Snape was a very mean person. He was terrible to Harry, and pretty much everyone else, no matter how torn up inside he was. Snape's personally one of my favorite characters (if you didn't guess from 'Almost') and I have nothing against him. I just don't think he's 'good'.

I hope you like my stories.

Wow. Haven't been on here in a long time. ;) If anyone's interested in what I've been up to these days, I suggest you look up the author

Astrid Goes For A Spin

on Fanfiction.net. Don't worry, I haven't done any Harry Potter on there, unless you count my true work of art, my crossover. Now, no more spoilers!

Read on, and please, review!

Also, about reveiws - some of them I've forgotten to thank the reveiwer, but I really love getting reveiws, so to anyone I've forgotten, thanks for reveiwing!

Summary:

Hufflepuff Albus Potter was a firm believer that it was a fact of nature and a rite of passage to torment one's sibling. And who better than his nerdy, Ravenclaw little sister? Her messy hair and stupid pile of books... she so had it coming.

But Lily had other ideas.

Forces of Nature by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 17]

Summary: In the midst of battle, and after that kiss, Ron knew he loved Hermione. He'd never said the words, but she knew.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling and have never even seen a backstreet boy.

Remembering Lily by Gmariam
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 39]

Summary: Past Featured StoryA lonely figure walks down the street, long auburn hair trailing behind her in the blustery wind. She pulls a red wool coat snug around her, gloved hands tucked into pockets as she wanders the sidewalk, glancing up at the shop fronts. She is young, but her face is lined with sadness, as if searching for something she has lost. Her green eyes long for answers.

Across the way a young man stops and stares at the woman in the red coat, hardly daring to believe it might be her. And yet as she turns and walks back up the street, he knows it is, and his heart stops beating for a moment. He blinks, just to see if she will disappear from his life once more, like she did over a year ago.

She doesn't.

Christmas Gifts by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary:

 

The gift was the exact size of a ring box from a jewellery shop. One glance at it had been enough to send a chill down Lily's spine and almost enough to make her say, "You shouldn't have." She loved James, she just wasn't ready to get married.

When Worlds Collide by jenny b
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 255]

Summary: Past Featured Story

Rose was a Weasley. She never gave Scorpius Malfoy a second glance. They were sworn enemies, even though they’d barely even spoken to each other. But sometimes all it takes for love to blossom is a Potions lesson, a few snide remarks and a dropped book.

Two people. Two entirely different worlds that are suddenly intertwined.

Unbreakable by ginnyrulz13
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: “Don't worry, Harry.” I start one of the many random conversations I have through-out the day with my 'Harry in my head'. Sometimes, it make me feel mental, but ironically it keeps me sane. “I will never give up. Never. I'll fight to the finish as long as I'll end up with you. Then, after you defeat Voldemort and save the world and everything, we can have that happily ever after I've been dreaming about. You know the one? Where you save the world, grin at your admirers, then sweep me off my feet to our happily ever after?


Ginny Weasley has big plans for her "happily ever after with Harry Potter", however, these plans have to be put on hold while she struggles with her life at Hogwarts without Harry, Hermione, or Ron.
