A Case for Perfectionism

Posted by Brook on September 6, 2012 at 11:40 AM

I think it is safe to say that Jo is a bit of a perfectionist.  She edited one chapter a total of thirteen times.


In the Biography by Sean Smith one restaurant owner who witnessed Joanne in action recalls, ‘It was pen and paper, and scribblings out and looking through, just going over and over it.’  Even a purchase of a word processor didn’t put an end to writing in longhand in one restaurant or another.


‘One of the things that is not generally realized about the Harry Potter series is that Joanne is writing all the books at the same time, in note form.

These little titbits of information really enable us to learn what it must be like to write such an epic fantasy series.
