I met Minnie first [of the TQP Captains], though how I can’t recall. Then was Annie through The Dungeon. Kerry was invited to be a Co-Captain, after which I got to know her well enough to drink with her, even though I’d seen her name around for a long time before that. Melanie I’ve only “seen” online, getting to know her since she was invited, though IM chats with her are interesting to say the least.
I will say that my least favorite [Harry Potter book] is Prisoner of Azkaban. I don’t think it did much to forward Harry’s story other than introduce Sirius. My favorite varies between Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince. I like the scope and depth of GoF, the character development in OotP and HBP because it was fun.
I would like to believe [...] that it’s a children’s book so JKR won’t kill Harry, but I just can’t be sure. I would like him to live to a ripe old age, marry anyone but Ginny and have lots of children he can spoil. Do I believe that will happen? No.
[Advice for first-time writers:] Just write. Don’t use too many adjectives. Don’t try to be fancy. If you like it, chances are someone else will. Read it out loud to yourself before anyone else sees it. Get a good beta.
