It's that time of year! National Novel Writing Month is just around the corner.  I just signed up...and you should too.   

J.K. Rowling, I apologize

This fall I have been trying to read a book every two weeks.  Early on in this endeavor, I decided to start reading the Harry Potter books.  I know, I'm a little late.  I also decided to read Twilight--worst idea EVER.  When Twilight first came out, I remember hearing people say that Stephanie Meyer was going to be the next J.K. Rowling.  I would like to state that these people were crazy, insane, and showed a lack of discernment that is frankly, frightening.  Rowling can WRITE.  She is very good at crafting her incredible imagination into phrases with nuances that I was impressed with.  Meyer...can't.  I am also quite certain that Meyer's editor should be ashamed of his or herself.  Bad...just bad. So, Ms. Rowling, I apologize for all the idiots out there who fouled your good name.
