J.K. Rowling Wrote A New Children's Book And Hid It In The Weirdest Place
Not in the cupboard under the stairs.
If there's one author out there who would take her birthday dress and turn it into a manuscript, it's J.K. Rowling - who had no absolutely qualms about scribbling over the outfit she wore in honour of her 50th celebrations.
The Harry Potter author was hosting a birthday party on the theme of 'worst nightmares' when she stumbled across the realisation that nothing could ever be worse than losing an entire manuscript. Hence the print-based dress. Go figure.
In an interview with CNN, J.K Rowling revealed that the writing itself wasn't that much-longed for sequel to Harry Potter and was infact the mysterious political "fairtyale" for children that she's already hinted about in previous interviews.
“The theme of my 50th birthday, which I held at Halloween, even though that’s not really my birthday, was come as your own private nightmare," she revealed. "And I went as a lost manuscript. And I wrote [most of it] over a dress.”
Standard magical behaviour, tbh.
Anyone hoping to get a glimpse of that potentially very lucrative dress will be surprised to hear of the weird location it's currently hiding in: “I don’t know whether it will ever be published, but it’s actually hanging in a wardrobe.”
Sacrilege indeed. Can someone do the rest of us squibs a favour and take a quick HD shot on the sly?
