My new years resolution this year was simply this, to read more, to work more on my novel, and to in general be more than what I had been before. I figured a blog would be a good way to hold myself accountable to these things.
be more.

We shouldn’t teach great books; we should teach a love of reading

In a new piece profiling Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, the New York Times reveals that J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff will at least be a trilogy.
The new series was first announced in September, and at the time we had only heard that WB hoped to turn it into a franchise. Today’s article also includes a couple of new quotes from Rowling who spoke about how important Tsujihara’s involvement was for this plan to come together.
“When I say he made ‘Fantastic Beasts’ happen, it isn’t P.R.-speak but the literal truth,” she told the newspaper. “We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I’d thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting!”
“When Kevin got the top job, he brought a new energy, which rubbed off. He’s a very engaging person, thoughtful and funny.”

Whenever I meet a person, I try to find out who their favorite author is or what their favorite book is, and after that I can’t help thinking about how those things have shaped their personality or how in some ways they try to emulate and become them. People are constantly reminding me of their favorite authors.
