I’m Still Alive

What happens when you start writing a memoir about your father, when you want to write a memoir about how Harry Potter has shaped your life?  You write a memoir about your father and you end it with an irrelevant link back to Harry Potter.  And so, you must go back and tweak the whole memoir to better point towards your new ending.

Yes, I’m still alive.

Yes, I’m late on my assignments again.

Yes, I’m looking forward to Supanova this weekend and meeting the Phelps twins even though I broke my Sirius Black wand but I still get to dress up in my Hufflepuff outfit which is very exciting.

Yes, I’ve been procrastinating.  I started up a new website for Australian Harry Potter fans that you can check out here:

http://www.potterdownunder.wordpress.com/

It’s basically to increase awareness of just how large the Harry Potter fandom is and aims to increase it here in Australia because frankly, I think we could do better.

I also began watching the remainder of Starkid’s musicals – I’m still going on them.  Aiming to finish them next week.  Erm, after my 3 assignments are handed in that are due this week.  They’re an amazing bunch of talented people!

Also, JK Rowling released the name and brief description of her new adult book, The Casual Vacany.  Very exciting.

Also, Pottermore is open to the public.  Yay!  If anyone wants to add me, my username is RainCentaur156, although I probably won’t add you if I don’t know you, so come and say hi 😛

Also, myHogwarts has started up trivia questions which is brilliant except that I’m having trouble logging in to my account let alone answering the questions!

Also, JK Rowling has confirmed work on the Harry Potter Encyclopedia.

Also, this memoir is due tomorrow.

😀 Gotta fly!

  1. You could just sellotape the wand together and pretend you’re Ron, even though it’s the wrong wand?
    Also is this memoir going to be published? Why are you writing it? How long have you been writing it for?

    • Haha I did consider taping it, but I fear that will only rip more of the paint off and probably won’t hold (dropping it again and causing more splits) 😛 Gonna get onto the superglue…

      The memoir is for a uni assessment and don’t think I’ll be publishing it at all! Haha 😀 It’s only 1500 words and I didn’t really put much effort into it at all… blah. That and I don’t think some people would be too impressed with it if it went public 😛 I am interested in doing more though, and maybe one that’s more Harry focused. I wrote one about toys and growing up back in my first year which I think I prefer, here.

      • oh yes superglue should do the trick. oh for some reason when you said memoir i imagined a whole book! not actually sure why… well good luck with it!

      • Some memoirs are whole books haha just not mine 🙂 They can be long or short.
