J.K. Rowling Is Telling Aspiring Writers How To Get It Done One Tweet At A Time


The Harry Potter series has inspired many children and adults in the decades since it was published. Some were inspired to read more, some to write, some to cosplay being wizards. What's important is that J.K. Rowling has stimulated many young minds.

And she is still trying to help the folks looking up to her who are pounding away at the keyboard and wondering when they're gonna make that break through. On Tuesday, Rowling very graciously answered some questions about her writing process as though just anyone can turn themselves into her. Like, did she plan everything before she wrote it and became a millionaire? Basically, yes.

"I plan a lot. This particular novel's plan comprises a vast, complicated, colour-coded table showing all the suspects, with blue ink for clues and red ink for red herrings," she wrote.
