A Year in the life of J.K. Rowling

To support my work please buy a
book or make a donation today. Thank you.

J.K. Rowling is one of my heroines. Her rags to riches story of how she wrote her first Harry Potter book while living on public assistance has inspired me to keep on keeping on as the years travel forward. It is my hope that I can inspire people to reach for their dreams as she has inspired me to continue reaching for mine.

I stumbled upon a video about her entitled “A Year In The Life of J.K. Rowling.” I just finished it, wiped away the tears and started on this blog post.

I hope that you will watch it too.

For those of you who are reading this via subscription, click on the link here to be taken to the video on YouTube.

Do you have any heroes or heroines that you admire? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.

P.S. Do you know a single mother who is down in the dumps at her situation? If so, please share this video with her so that we can give her hope that perhaps she, too can escape poverty.

Thank you,

    I love J.K. Rowling and her life story. The Harry Potter books were something we read together as a family, to know she found her way by writing the books and giving families a way to spend time together in a crazy world is very special.

    That was a powerful video. Thank you for sharing it. I will spend some time thinking about being “a try-er”.
