"Walk By Faith, Not By Sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7

J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling

Well, the rumors running around the blogging-sphere are true.  I did a search on Google News about the revelation of J.K. Rowling’s hidden identity as another author.  Interesting, right?  I thought I would share with you guys a source from USA Today.  

In my personal opinion, I think its great that she can be so versatile and make people believe that she is writing as a man.  I don’t mean that as a gender slur, but more a a compliment as a writer.  Its shows talent.  Not many can come up with believable characters.  More so, not everyone can put on a fake identity and still win an award.  Good for her!  I also agree that it was a great experiment for her to see success without the hype of her name.  Harry Potter is a fantastic series, but we need to keep in mind that it is solely that; a series. To put the pressure of another magical tale on her is a little unrealistic, especially if the genre is mystery, or life drama.  Of course its not going to be the same.  Either way, I think its great she is branching out, whether or not the new titles she writes are one-hit-wonders, top-sellers, or simply end as a dusty book on a forgotten shelf.  She is writing, and pursuing her dreams.  That right there, friends, is enough inspiration to me.
