When I grow up, I want to be JK Rowling

I mean, think about it. She's something like Britain's richest woman, she made her fortune writing books, and she has a beautiful family. She went through such dark times, and in the end she won.

Damn, I want to be a writer.

In any case, she has released the title of the 6th Harry Potter Book! You can find out by visiting www.jkrowling.com and do some silly flash games, or you can visit www.mugglenet.com and scroll through the news section until you find the relevant information.

I must say that I am intrigued. And jealous. Does anyone know how I can become JK Rowling?

Incidently, last night I was woken up not once, but twice (the second time only a few minutes after I fell asleep from being woken up the first time) by the sound of someone either banging on a baking sheet, or bending it slightly in their hands to make that metallic flexing sound. It was very strange, and very vivid. It's left me wondering if I should have gotten up and looked around the house or made some phone-calls to make sure that everyone was okay...

In regards to being JK Rowling, you have several options. The first is the Jame Gumb (of Silence of the Lambs fame) method. But that's disgusting and weird and you're already female.

Second, how long do you want to be in gene therapy?

Third, have someone take the mask off her in the abandoned warehouse behind the old amusement arcade to reveal that it actually is you already and you would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those damn kids.

Fourth, tell everyone you meet that you ARE J.K. Rowling and eventually there will be enough people believing you that you start getting approached by publishing houses.

Fifth, write a book that sells better than Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone did.

I'm sure there are more and people will add to this list.

It puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again!!!

Kill her and wear her face as a mask, hoping her family don't notice.

Change your name by deed poll.

Or write some kids' books, and submit them to a variety of Australian publishers. Kids' books pay a ridiculous amount (more than adult books), and with lending rights as well, you stand to be able to make a decent living, if you can deal with being a 'kids' author'. You'd want to get an international distribution deal, though, because we don't have the population here to support millionaire authors of any variety.
If you ever get serious about it, I can ask patchworkkid for suggestions about submissions, and maybe some contact addresses. He's just had Penguin buy a kids' story from him.
