Harry Potter Author Losing Her Damn Mind
J.K. Rowling is so into her work that she’s dreaming that she’s her main character. Oh, and she named the next one. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to camp outside my local Borders. *rolls eyes*
We now have a title for Book VII: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”
No publication date or other details were offered. Rowling is still working on the book, she explained on her Web site in an entry posted early Thursday.
“I’m now writing scenes that have been planned, in some cases, for a dozen years or even more,” she wrote. “I don’t think anyone who has not been in a similar situation can possibly know how this feels: I am alternately elated and overwrought. I both want, and don’t want, to finish this book (don’t worry, I will.)”
Rowling said she has been asked for years if she ever dreams she is in the boy wizard’s world.
“The answer was ‘no’ until a few nights ago, when I had an epic dream in which I was, simultaneously, Harry and the narrator,” she wrote.
“Perhaps I should cut back on the caffeine?” she joked.
Or the muscle relaxants, scary lady. I admire this chick, though. She came from nothing and made herself a mutli-million dollar empire. I’ve been trying to sell my stories about Debbie, an old hooker that drags around a mummified dead cat, for years. I guess I should have thrown in some friggin’ magic wands and annoying adolescents who save the world. No one takes my art seriously. Bastards.
