Today is Women’s Day (a fact I did not know until about an hour ago). In honor of this momentous occasion I thought it would be a good idea to write about strong independent women. I thought of writing something about my badass mom but I might end up crying and confessing to something worse that what she caught me at. Hehehe! Kidding!
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” ― J.K. Rowling
J.K. Rowling is one of the most popular authors in past decade due to her success through the Harry Potter series. But, life wasn’t always magical for Joanne Kathleen Rowling. She’s had some tough times but she never gave up on her writing. Her mother died in 1990. She was divorced single parent and living on public assistance when she wrote Harry Potter and the Sorceress Stone at a café during her daughter’s naps. Rowling never gave up hope of achieving her dream. Instead, she uses her past experiences – good and bad, as the inspiration that leads her to dream up the magical story of a young orphan on his way to wizard school… a story that would change the face of literature.
J.K. Rowling, for me, is the epitome of a strong and independent woman.
