Someone asked the other day: what book series do wish you had thought of first before the original author did? Immediately my answer was the Harry Potter series.
Of course the first thing that came to mind was “Of course! That series has made millions of dollars, inspired so much merchandise, a mega website and even a theme park!” But that wasn’t why I the books were the first ones that came to mind. I just genuinely love all the books and the writing of J.K. Rowling.
Ms. Rowling used her imagination to the max! She created another world with so many details that it amazes me every time I re-read one of the books or watch one of the movies. To be able to tap into your imagination to that extent is awesome! I’m hoping to channel some of her energy while writing my next book series. The new series is still a romance but has an interesting twist that I can’t wait to share with you. But it is definitely going to challenge my imagination and I’m actually looking forward to it.
As for the money aspect of the Harry Potter novels, who wouldn’t want some of that! But I can honestly say that my answer didn’t come from a financial stand point but from the fact that the books are just so good, so engaging that I wished I had that of the character Harry Potter – “The boy that lived”.
Oh and by the way – today is Harry Potter’s birthday! (See I’m a super fan of my favorite books/movies/shows – just call me a nerd).
Big Hugs Everyone!
Wished I Had Written That Book
