Potter Finally

Well, my wife finished up the Harry Potter book last week, so I am finally able to read it.  I’m about 100 pages in and it has been excellent so far.  I actually haven’t read all the books, but read the first and saw the movies.  I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to follow the story, but I’ve been sucked in. My wife tells me that things only get more stressful with the story.  We shall see.

The only bad part is that I am only to read for about a half hour each night, with helping take care of my daughter (which is a ton of fun lately, reading books, making her stuffed animals chase her, etc.), blogging, and occasional fiction writing taking the rest of my time.

I’ve even avoided most of the spoilers thus far, which is amazing. Let’s just hope I can keep it that way.

I started a short story, in the fantasy genre, last Friday.  I think it will turn out to be a nice little tale.  I’m aiming for around 1000 words. I may even try to submit it places. If so, I might wait to post it here and instead ask for some beta readers.  I have to finish it first, of course.

  1. I look forward to reading your short story if you decide post it here 🙂

    I’d definately recommend reading the other Harry Potter books – so much comes together in the last instalment that Rowling has been hinting at throughout the series, and that feeling of “so THAT’S what it all means!” as you uncover the plot is really wonderful. :]

  2. I often read books/watch dvd-s with interruptions so as to elongate the pleasure.
    I find the story lingers within me more as compared to read/watch it in one go.
    and I like it.

    I have not read HP7 yet, and I hope if you give away any spoilers, so alarm us with some spoiler alert tags.

    I’m with Soph in suggesting reading the otehr books as well – for the same reasons.

  3. emilia – no, not like harry potter. Wouldn’t want to invite those comparisons. It’s more of a “fairy tale” type fantasy. Hopefully, it turns out well.

    Soph – You are right. I’ll finish this one and then hopefully get to the other books. So many books to read, so little time.

    SzélsőFa – I’ll have to read the other books at some point. Interesting about letting the story linger. I will have to try that.
