The one thing J.K. Rowling might say to you if she knew you

Courtesy of crumpled up paper I found in the trash bin.

Have a great Thursday.

Of course that leads one to ask *why* you rummaged through a trashcan in the first place :)

There's gotta be a great flash fiction story there :)

L.G. Keltner said...

This is great advice!

Trisha F said...

Yeah, why DID you rummage through the trashcan? :)

And I agree, great advice!

mooderino said...

Aren't we the muggles? I get myself down all the time.

Good old J.K.

Cindy said...

Hmm...I guess good advice can be found in a trash can. :)

Elise Fallson said...

But did you find the portal to Middle-Earth?

Richard Hughes said...

I don't know what "muggles" are. Maybe that's a good thing.

Candilynn Fite said...

If I saw this laying in the trash can, I'd have to take a quick shot with my phone camera as well.

Pat Dilloway said...

So you're rooting through garbage cans now?

Elizabeth Seckman said...

What a treasure to find. I love it!!

@Moody: Of course we are not the muggles. As writers we are the source of magic. Sigh. This post really loses its punch when you have to explain it.

Adam said...

I love the term muggle, makes us feel special

Andrew Leon said...

That sounds like it should be a song.

Cherie Reich said...

So true! And why would anyone throw that away?

Liz said...

Mostly, I try to ignore the muggles.

Gina Gao said...

This is great! I had a great laugh at this.

why is you looking stuff up in trash bins, Mikey? :PPP

Stephen Hayes said...

My parents were muggles, but I"M a wizard!

Charlie Holmberg said...

Ha ha.

Though... Where in the bathroom did you find it? :O

M Pax said...

Are you stalking her? :D Be gone Muggles!! I'm using my chocolate as a wand.

Madeline Jane said...

I feel like grabbing my $30 wand from Harry Potter world off my desk and waving it around. That place sucks the money right out of you. . . ;)

Helena said...

And muggles sure can get you down if you let 'em.

Rachna Chhabria said...

It sounds like the begining of an amazing short story :)

Laura Eno said...

So true. The Muggles stalk me, whispering their no-good messages at me, trying to make me give up. Be gone with you, cursed Muggles and your dim spark of life!

J.K. Rowling knows Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar. Penny suggested some 'pawblishing' tips and look at J.K. now!

Be well, Michael.

Penny's human,

Gary

Good piece of advice! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I have a feeling she's been feeling down if she cares about reviews. Her last book was boring. Did you read it? yawn... I started it, couldn't get anywhere and most of the people I've talked to at the library said the same.
