#What do you see – Word Prompt

I see a terrified dragon, who has been treated badly, in the underground vaults of Gringotts. I see Harry, and his friends saving a magical and muggle world. But I also see a childhood and the bond I have with my daughter that a mere book gave us.

She was eleven, about the same age as Harry Potter in the books. Not an avid reader, I brought Harry Potter and the Philosophers’ Stone. We read it together, and she found the same joy in reading I did.

As the character grew, so did my daughter. I remember queuing up to buy the sixth book in the series. At midnight we brought our books, and spent the rest of the night reading. This time she read her own copy and I read mine.

We read all seven books, watched all the movies, and I even have a handbag with Harry Potter on it – brought by my son at a Harry Potter convention.

Reading is something I have always loved, it immerses you in another magical world. A world created by the writer. It is why I love writing so much.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. This is something I can relate to. My kids also grew up reading Harry Potter and loved it. Now I and my grandson sat together and watched all 7 movies again. It’s a wonderful bonding experience. Thanks for joining in!

  2. I could watch all the movies again. Apart from the Half Blood Prince. They didn’t do the film justice. My favourite film, by far, was The Prisoner of Azkaban. I must have watched that movie multiple times.

  3. I remember reading the first Harry Potter book to my friend’s children when we were all holiday – must be more than 20 years ago. I’m still a huge fan. Well done to JKR for getting all those kids into reading!

  4. The memories of reading books together with my parents, I want to buy to hold dear. I’m lucky that they are both still here, and without them reading to me, I doubt I’d be a writer today.A lovely post, well done.
