J.K. Rowling Wants to Fall in Love


This excerpt from Reuters:

Rowling gave no clues as to her next project, but told an audience of 1,600 children that Harry Potter would be a hard act to follow.

"I want to fall in love with someone the way I fell in love with Harry. I never think about a particular genre. It is all about the story and the characters, but it has to be something I adore," she said.

I've been following the tour. Interesting to read that Dumbledore was gay.

No wonder her books have been so able to capture all sorts of kids - readers and non-readers, alike. I imagine whatever she writes next will be succesful in its own way.

The more times I read Harry Potter, the more fascinated I become with JK Rowling. As I write my own middle grade novel, I can't help but compare myself to her (not that I think I am anything like her - I should be so lucky!)But I wonder and pray that I can be at least a 1/16 as successful as she was. I imagine she must be a little freaked out now that Harry is done. Maybe even a little melancholy. Ah perchance to dream a Rowling dream...
