Back in August, I blogged about a poster I saw at Platform 9 3/4, the Harry Potter shop at King’s Cross Station. I was astounded – and inspired – by the image which contained all 76,944 words of JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book.
For a writer, facing the challenge of the blank page – or 375 of them for a 75,000 word book – can be daunting, but seeing a whole story on a poster somehow makes that task appear more achievable. So imagine my delight on Christmas Day when a good friend presented me with a bangle on which she’d had the words – 76,944 words. write a poster – inscribed.
Thank you, L. I’m going wear it every day in 2014 as I work on my writing, using it as inspiration to write my own ‘poster‘.
I didn’t realize that’s what L gave you! Fantastic.
It’s gorgeous, isn’t it. And so thoughtful.
