I came across this beautiful documentary chronicling the final year of J.K. Rowling’s writing process for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It is the most in depth I’ve ever seen any journalist get with Ms. Rowling, and I implore you to watch the whole documentary, paying special attention to the final video. This is what many writers go through in their lives, even though the hope of being as successful as Ms. Rowling is very slim.
We still write. We have to write, even when our world crumbles around us.
