When I'm lacking inspiration, what do I do? I read my favorite books, the ones that give me a great deal of energy and inspiration. You Everyone Poops, and The Tao of Pooh, and of course all of the Harry Potter books. Harry Potter in particular.

Just the other day I was feeling tremendously ho hum about my quest for the secrets of writing the perfect book. So, what did I do? I walked into our dusty home theater and plopped down onto one of the red velvet seats. Winston, my butler, brought me a bucket of fresh, buttery popcorn and handed me the remote. Flipping through the channels, I found HARRY POTTER numero uno playing for my greatly-needing-inspiration convenience. I tossed the popcorn aside and ran across the marble foyer to the library. I'm much more comfortable there, anyway. I found Harry Potter on the shelves under (R) (you know, for Rowling?) and read until I felt ALIVE....until I felt that EVERY breath I took was filled with 10,000,000 atoms of INSPIRATION!

Thank you Harry. Thank you J to the K to the R-O-W-L-I-N-G!

And, that, my friendly fobs (remember, Friends of Blog), is how I felt inspired enough to write another page in my current best selling book (which you can buy by the page, here).


  1. Maybe I should pull out one of my volumes of HP too. I seem to need inspiration these days! Thank you. We are all in this together. I need all the tips I can get. Grazie!

  2. I didn't know anyone else was inspired by EVERYONE POOPS. Looks like Nerd Girl isn't a perfect match for Steve Urkel. She's a perfect match for ME.

    I assume you're just joking about the Everyone Poops book? :-D
