Harry Potter: Childhood Books
I have to admit that I am an addict to novels, and reading. Recently I have acquired multiple audio-books. I have listened to thousands of these in the past, and recently I have been running into time issues, well better stated time management issues haha. Any whom I have recently listened to the Hobbit, and started my way into the Lord of the Rings series. Among my wonderful audio experience I ran into a bout with other options to listen.
It turned out that our order for the Harry Potter on Blu-Ray collection arrived on Thursday. That meant that I have to plow through the series as quickly as possible. So I started listening to the books again. I forgot how many memories I have as a child with those books. I grew up with Harry. We aged the same time. I know it might sound nerdy, but if you have read other blog posts I have written you shouldn't honestly consider yourself a fan/friend if you think so. Secretly we all have nerdy habits about us, and I am willing to admit that I am a nerd.
So we have already made it through the first couple of movies and today is also writing day. I edited my novel and realized that Baelki now has a total of 7 written chapters. This totals us out to 14,000 written words. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone has a total of 72,000 words. The books I am trying to monitor myself off of though are the Wheel of Time Series. They have on average 300,000 words. I have quite a way to go, but a huge dent has been made in the series. I don't know how many people are interested in the collection, but I hope to be published someday. Dreams are good to have though.
Well I don't have much more to say, but I did want to let you all know that I am still working on my series. I haven't given up and a future of my novel looks bright.
