My View on Potter


I’m not a fan of Harry Potter Novel but I’m very impress about it popularity. Everyone knew who Harry potter is. The first time I saw Harry Potter is in a magazine, a short articles about an author, J.K.Rowling (British) writing a novel about a kid who has magic or learn to do magic. My first impression is what a silly character, a kid wearing a spectacle, holding a wand, flying with a broom stick, look like a copycat of a classic witch. No special characters that can be classified as uniquely over rated but than again I was totally misjudged and shocked to see that in a matter of just a few years the character is going to be big and famous.

Boy was I wrong, that Harry Potter is now on the big screen and currently at number one at the cinema worldwide. This is very much unexpected. It turns out to be money maker and making the author much richer than before.

If you ever read the profile of the author, initially her life is not as easy as it may seem.
This was an extraction from the wikipedia’s website about the author: “In December 1994, Rowling and her daughter moved to be near her sister in Edinburgh, Scotland. Unemployed and living on state benefits, she completed her first novel. She did her work in numerous cafés (e.g. Nicolson's Cafe and Elephant House Café), whenever she could get Jessica to fall asleep.”
She was lucky to be able to come up with a character that is going to make her famous and rich. I suppose it was one of those lucky moments where you strike a lottery without even thought about it at all.

Have you ever thought of yourself to be able to come up with something, anything that will make you rich and famous someday? If yes, then start doing some action from now on. The author did not just sit down doing nothing and wait for something wonderful to happen. She writes, thinks, imagining, you know what writers do. It means that a goal without action is just a dream that will never ever come thru. Therefore stop dreaming and do some action.
List of all Books she authored:
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (26 June 1997) (titled Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in the United States)
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2 July 1998)
