You know that silly argument that either you were born to be a writer or you weren’t? Yep it’s pretty silly. Here’s my two cents on that: Another part of being a “born writer” – a huge, underestimated, overlooked part of being a born writer – is reading as many books as you possibly can and getting as much out of them as you possibly can. It’s like the French novelist Andre Maurois said:

Writing is a difficult trade which must be learned slowly by reading great authors; by trying at the outset to imitate them; by daring then to be original and by destroying one’s first productions.

What better way to become a born writer than by studying one of the most acclaimed authors of all time – and maybe a few others along the way (I’m talking about Rowling here just in case the blog title didn’t give it away).

This blog is about me figuring out how Rowling made millions of people fall in love with Harry Potter and then telling you what I figured out so we can all become filthy rich “born writers.”
