Writer’s Quote Wednesday sponsored by Colleen gives us the opportunity to see what some of our favorite author’s are saying, or tell our own profound philosophy on our thoughts, perceptions or observations.
I first read about Joanne Rowling when I was the librarian for Brookemeade Public School in Nashville, Tennessee. I was responsible for collection development. I read about this Brit who had penned the beginning of a book for young boys as she rode the bus. I ordered her first book, Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone, and thus began the cult-like following in our school of this brilliant author.
I found this quote on Goodreads. We’ve all had ample opportunity to read about this very premises in every news outlet. It’s as old as the history of man. Every writer, including Rowling, uses a protagonist who has a goal or goals that is difficult to achieve and necessary for their well-being. The difficult to achieve comes in the form of the antagonist who sets up obstacles to keep the goals from being achieved.
