So yes this weekend is a bittersweet affair with the very last installment of the Harry Potter phenomenon in theaters today. All over the blogosphere peeps are celebrating in their own creative ways as we say farewell to a series that has had an astonishing effect on peeps of all ages.
I am no different than so many others who have been inspired to take up the keyboard and write after reading the HP series. I've been writing stories since I was a child, but it was after reading the HP series that I realized I really could pursue it. JK Rowling's imagination and creation opened doors and windows for peeps all over the world, inspiring us to tap into our own creative storehouses.
I love the fact this series has been a companion to so may readers around the world. I also love the fact it was written by a penniless woman--a single mother who had a vision. It gives me chills and it gives me courage. And it proves that children and adults alike can spot quality, regardless of how many pages it is.
So, in honor of Harry Potter, I leave you with a contest going on right now, through the end of this month over at Lisa Galek's blog. Enter to win some great prizes! But first, you'll need to know what house the sorting hat would put you in. I, myself, was placed in Hufflepuff.
First go here to answer some questions and be placed into a house. Then, click on the pic below to enter the contest for some HP swag.
Best of luck! Thanks so much for stopping by. Tell me how the Harry Potter series has influenced or inspired you! Please share ....
