So...If you just pulled yourself out of a hole butt first, you may not know that it is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows PART ONE week. And if we are just "meeting" for the first time, you will not know how I feel about this. Nor have realized that my blog will be dedicated to it.
But what is even better, it isn't just MY blog that is giving a shout out to the big H.P. and JK Rowling this week but Jen Daiker @ unedited, Melissa @ Through the Looking Glass , Lisa Galek @ Read. Write. Repeat, and Renae Mercado @ The Siren's Song , Laurel @ Laurel's Leaves, and I have all teamed up! So if you need a sextuple(sextuplet?) dose of Wizarding Magical Blog-Awesomeness then haunt us all this week!
BECAUSE: This week is about imagination as a writer.
And Harry Potter.
So lets all channel our 7 year old selves and take this week to pretend!
One of the best villains of all time is LORD VOLDEMORT! (Oh yes. I said your name. Bring it on Voldy)
I love him. He's terrible. He has no conscience. He has this sad past but it does nothing to make you sympathize for this guy because he just doesn't care! If he was traumatized or something, yea maybe we could feel bad for that guy but NO. He's just a mean dude!
So...What would if have been like if he had won? (SPOILER! If I ruined it for anyone, you have my permission to thump me in the forehead but I'm pretty confident everyone in the world, read the books and seen the movies or not, knows he doesn't win.)
Picture it, my friends. You are still all muggly and wake up this morning to every station playing that horrible disaster noise. They are all blaring a breaking news update: witches and wizards are indeed real and, as of last night, the most evil of all wizards owns the world.
I have my ideas. I can see it now. But I want to know what your initial response will be without any influence from me!
So imagine, pretend, and tell me about your new life!
HERE you will find video highlights from the UK Potter premiere last Thursday in case you missed it.
(Anyone else notice the Holiday Cokes are back out making the rounds? There is something about Santa on the cans that is the official green light for the holidays in my book)
