|From Jo's Twitter|
Guys, have you ever come across "open letters to Jo" that crop up once in a while online? Their authors (they call themselves Potterheads - as if true Potterheads would ever do something like that!) tell Jo (out of the goodness of their hearts, no doubt... right) that she should stop writing about Harry Potter and go and write something else, because, apparently, they just want to lock him up in the cupboard of their childhood and leave him there. So, instead of opting simply not to read new stuff Jo shares with her grateful and lifelong fans, they opt to tell her what to do with her world instead. Gah! I'm so angry and outraged right now I'm shaking! And I needed to share it with someone. I'm not even talking about complete disregard for those of us who actually want to know all this stuff. I mean, why would anyone at all think that they have any right to tell anyone else what to do with their creativity and where to take their famous character and his beloved world?!! Here's this piece of rotting garbage: An open letter to J.K. Rowling: Please, just stop. Can you believe the nerve and the condescension of this person?! Are you with me on that? I'm so furious!
