Writing Goals: I Will Never Be J. K. Rowling

Miriam E. A.Thompson > Miriam’s Blog > Writer's Path > Writing Goals: I Will Never Be J. K. Rowling

I loved this movie and wanted an excuse to put this in this post! Found this on Giphy.

Remarkable story about J. K. Rowling’s rise after being rejected several times.

Jane Austen is my literary idol, but I could never be like her.

I could attempt to study her technique or try to copy her writing style, but it will most certainly stink.

Reason being, Jane Austen is true to herself.

I have to be real with myself.

I will never be like Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, J. K. Rowling, Jodi Picoult and others because they write from their own backgrounds and experiences.

In honing writing skills, it is far better to write in our own voice than sound like a copycat.

Be authentic.

Show the world that our writing is an extension of  ourselves.

For real,

M.
