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!

Five Weeks by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 19]

Summary: When Nymphadora Tonks arrived at the Ministry to save Harry and his friends, she was a young, fearless Auror. Five weeks later she’s a mess. Her once vibrant hair is a drab brown and she can barely smile. Has she lost her nerve? Is it guilt over Sirius’ death? Or is something else happening in her life that has ridden roughshod over her unusual powers?

I am Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff and this is my entry for Round 7 of The Gauntlet.

Special thanks to Cassie (ms leading) for beta'ing this for me.

I really liked it - I think Snape talked too much, but maybe he was feeling different that day. I just can't see him speaking civilly to someone who prefers her hair pink. I do enjoy how she had to keep her hair a normal color to persuade him to teach her....=)

Author's Response: Hmm, Snape when he's not with Harry, et al, is a different person. He wouldn;t have been quite such a bitter man when teaching Tonks and I think that's part of what he remembers. That's my personal canon, of course. I think he respected Tonks until she took up with the werewolf. Thank you ~Carole~

I kiss him.


Harry and Ginny kiss after the Quidditch game, but what happened afterwards? This is kind of the sequel to my fic "Invisible", but it can stand alone.

'Although, we never did talk about the Quidditch match.'. Really? It didn't come up? Ha!

Author's Response: I know right? I totally expected them to just talk and talk about the quidditch match. Especially after they were making out in the common room. It's what everyone does.

This is my favorite story of all time - I had it printed, but somehow, several chapters dissapeared, so I have to read up! I like how you make each of the Marauders a different character - and how you show everyone (now at least) in a good light.

Keep writing Stars Apart, you're killing me at that cliffhanger!

“We need to, um, borrow some of your potion,” said Sirius, beaming at him.

I love that part so much. I love this chapter, I love Remus. I especially love how Lily walks straight into the bookshelf - I have the special talent enabling me to run, full-speed, into a cinder-block wall and give myself a concussion.

I love the relationship of the Marauders, especially Remus. I love that he's so calm, 'I'll have to get back to you on that,' when his best friend just poisoned himself.

I love nearly everything about this chapter.

The one thing I don't like is how James sits on Lily's table. I think this is in character, so it is correct, but I still think it was rude and innapropriate.

'What exactly are you trying to do to the ceiling?' I love that part. Keep writing Stars Apart!

 
Reviewer: Snowlily Signed
Date: 04/11/11 Title: Chapter 4: Hatching Plans

I absolutely loved 'eyes smoldering' it really brings a picture into how she was feeling - that whole 'show, not tell' thing again, right? But my favorite part.... “Women want to be treated with kindness and respect. It’s probably not to late for James to redeem himself. Self-confidence is the most important tool when wooing a member of the opposite sex, and a little politeness goes a long way. And don’t forget, a smile is the sexiest thing you can wear.”

The other three stared at him. Sirius raised an eyebrow. “Wormtail thinks you’re sexy,” he informed James.

I enjoyed that part too much.... if you didn't read some self-help books yourself, that's impressive!

Another favorite part...He looked at her blankly for a moment. “I—um, yeah, I…not bad, yours?”

Behind him, Peter murmured under his breathe, “Smooth.” James aimed a kick at him, but missed, and hit the leg of the table. Plates rattled. Lily seemed not to notice.

“It was all right. Get your O.W.L. scores? How’d that Potions tutoring help?”

“Well, I don’t think even extra lessons with Slughorn could have helped me out on that one, but I passed! Although I think the fact that I finished the exam at all means that I Exceeded Expectations…”

Lily laughed lightly, and James grinned at her. Behind him, Sirius was not even trying to disguise his shock, his mouth hanging open. Remus elbowed him, leaning forward to eavesdrop shamelessly as Lily asked James what classes he was continuing with for his sixth year.

"Blinken likes hats," James informed her.

I loved that part soo much. This is my favorite chapter, because you don't see Sirius doing stupid things when he's not 'drunk'.

'and he glided away' ha. I love Remus too much.... and another thing - trying and failing to look small. You're a big boy, Sirius! Stand up and Face it !

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.

Who knew that throwing things in a rage at bathroom mirrors could be such good therapy?

I love that line. I also love the image of Ginny, hidden behind the curtains in her bed, replaying, like, one word that Harry said over and over and over and over from a cell phone. That really brightened my day. =)

Author's Response: Aw I'm so glad you liked it! All three of your reviews meant so much to me! I'm also happy that you enjoyed the phone bit since it's sorta just slipped in there. You get a piece of pie for noticing it. Perhaps apple or pumpkin. :)

The black unicorn is reputed to have magical healing properties.

The black unicorn could be Lily Potter’s only chance of a future.

The black unicorn, he is told, does not exist.

But Teddy is not alone in believing in the animal. Backed by the Scamanders, he travels across three continents in search of a myth, all the while aware that he’s following in his mother’s footsteps.

I am Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff and this is my entry in Round 8 of The Gauntlet.

But what happened???? Very good idea, good writing, but still. What happened!!!!

Author's Response: They're going to make the potion and cure Lily :). And as Victoire knows all about it, she's forgiven him too. This story was written for a competition. We had to send our chosen character all over the world in search of a magical creature. Teddy needed the black unicorn because he'd read his mother's research into a potion to cure lycanthropy (I think that's in chapter 2). I've left it up to your interpretation as to what happens next. ~Carole~

Amongst his friends, he was always playing the part of the dashing rogue - a dapper roué who was never without a female companion. If he was so comfortable in the company of others, why then did he seek solace in the rain?
