Harry Potter Ate My Nano

I’ve got another excuse to add to my Nano list (in addition to the new baby, the kitchen renovation, and the cold).

Here it is: Harry Potter is eating my Nanowrimo.


You see, on Halloween, I dressed Google as Harry Potter.

Thanks to one of my students for the idea!

This sparked the idea that perhaps, while I’m feeding little Google (not his name- I’m not that weird), I could read some Harry Potter! It’d been a while since I’d read HP but I’ve read them so many times (I even took a college class before book 6 came out), I thought it would be nice to re-read them while I’m feeding the baby. My reasoning was that they would be entertaining, but I could easily put them down since I’ve read them so many times before.

I have never been so wrong.

The Harry Potter books are just as addictive the umpteenth time through them as they were when I first started reading them in 2001.

I’m currently about 2/3 of the way through book 6, and it’s all I can do to rip myself away from it when I’m done feeding the wee babe.

Here’s a hint: If there are any major projects in your life that you’d like to get completed before certain milestones like, say, Thanksgiving or Christmas or THE END OF NOVEMBER, don’t touch a Harry Potter book. Just don’t.

*sigh* Time to write. This book won’t write itself.

    When I saw the name ‘Google’ I was like, “It has to be a nickname”. And then I read that it’s not his real name. Haha. I was so close to believing though, cause I’ve heard of parents naming their kids Asterisk.
