I don’t read ‘chick lit,’ fantasy or science fiction but I’ll give any book a chance if it’s lying there and I’ve got half an hour to kill.
The most important thing is to read as much as you can, like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing and it will enlarge your vocabulary.
I will carry on writing, to be sure. But I don’t know if I would want to publish again after Harry Potter.
People ask me if there are going to be stories of Harry Potter as an adult. Frankly, if I wanted to, I could keep writing stories until Harry is a senior citizen, but I don’t know how many people would actually want to read about a 65 year old Harry still at Hogwarts playing bingo […]
And the idea of just wandering off to a cafe with a notebook and writing and seeing where that takes me for awhile is just bliss.
No, there is literally nothing on the business side that I wouldn’t sacrifice in a heartbeat to have an extra couple of hours’ writing. Nothing.
Writing and cafes are strongly linked in my brain.
I loved writing for kids, I loved talking to children about what I’d written, I don’t want to leave that behind.
There appears to be something to do with vehicles and movement that stimulates my writing.
I’ve been writing my entire life, and I’ll always write.
