I'm not a professional writer. When J.K. Rowling can shoot an ILS down to minimums, then I'll stop commenting about her writing. But until then, I think it's fair to say that any comparion between us is ridiculous.
7 billion, one nation, imagination...it's a beautiful day
I cannot paint, sculpt, or draw - but I think the works of Piet Mondrian suck.
I do not play the soprano saxophone, but I think Kenny G sucks.
As consumers, we are all critics. We have to be. Without good, there would be no bad. And after all, Mir is not a multi-million dollar writer, J.K. Rowling is. Why should he be challenged to do better if that's not what he does?

actually, she's hit the billion dollar mark.
Quoting Malmoaviation (Reply 2): Rumors says that Harry will die in the last book, anyone heard of that?
there are all kinds of rumors like that floating around. Harry dies to kill off Voldemort, etc. etc.
it has been stated by Rowling herself that she HAS completed the ending of the series at least. now it's just a matter of her getting the rest of the story finished.
i predict the final book will not be published at LEAST until the very end of 2008 or 2009. i think she'll take her time with this one. and the final book will be the largest advance sale of any book in history.
Eternal darkness we all should dread. It's hard to party when you're dead.
