Quote of the Week

Last week, Oprah Winfrey had famous author JK Rowling on her show. Rowling is the author of the Harry Potter series. Obviously, this woman knows how to write. But, when I read this quote (found on an awesome blog that I follow, written by a teen girl) I knew that Rowling had not lost her sense of wonder and discovery in the writing process.

Here is her quotation:

"It's true for all writers: I know what I believe because of what I've written." 

Simple and true. No best-seller bravado. This applies to Rowling and to all of us. We form our beliefs as we read and write and explore who we are. I love it.
