Funny Thing

J. K. Rowling said that when she wrote her first draft of the first Harry Potter book, she sort of glossed over the death of Harry's parents. Then six months later, her mother passed away, and the death of Harry's parents became a much deeper part of the books.

I'm going over some final edits on the validation book, and if I had to say what I would change now that my Grandma passed away, I'd say...nothing. I can see now, more than ever, that I had it right the first time. The only thing I'd change is that I would have already had it done and published and on the bestseller list so that everyone around me would have already read it when my grandma passed away and would be treating me differently as a result.
