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!
