This week in Rowling: Writer tips, plushes, and Pepsi

There were so many times in the early 90s when I needed somebody to say this to me. Here at EW we try to keep up with all of the iconic author’s delightful doings, from Harry Potter tidbits to fun fan interactions. Tips for the next generation of literary geniuses
Do you ever find yourself wondering what it takes to be a writer like J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) April 5, 2017

The Beasts are Back
Can’t get enough of   Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? — J.K. #Niffler
— J.K. *bows reverently to a Twitter master*
— J.K. You wanted it. Rowling (@jk_rowling) April 3, 2017

World Health Day
As April 7 is also World Health Day, Rowling was sure to retweet her NGO, Lumos, in an effort to raise awareness about institutional care and the ways in which it can harm children. Rowling (@jk_rowling) April 3, 2017

You'll have turned yourself from somebody who's 'thinking of', who 'might', who's 'trying', to someone who DID. Institutional care puts children at increased risk of violence #WorldHealthDay #SDG3 #ENDViolence

Pepsi, who? Rowling (@jk_rowling) April 3, 2017


Maybe your third, fourth, fiftieth song/novel/painting will be the one that 'makes it', that wins the plaudits…
— J.K. But you don’t have to head to The Elephant House to drink your tea and write about it too. Well, now you can find   one such beast at Platform 9 3/4, the exclusive carrier for the   brand new Niffler plush, which Rowling is very excited about. Rowling? Just take some tips from the master herself, who was generous enough to give away some advice pro-bono to aspiring writers like her younger self. Rowling. And once you've done it…

Here endeth today's sermon and thanks to @beauty_jackson for her original words of wisdom. Rowling may not be in the spotlight, but she’s always on top of what is. This is the Week in J.K.
— J.K. It's great advice for many reasons. So it’s no shocker she had something to say about the public outcry to   that   Pepsi ad when she retweeted this unique approach to the controversy. Rowling still doesn’t do many interviews, but she does have a very active Twitter account. Rowling (@jk_rowling) April 6, 2017

Show Full Article J.K. You're going to get it. Rowling (@jk_rowling) April 3, 2017

(And by the way, just because it didn't find an audience, that doesn't mean it's bad work.)
— J.K. Of course you do, who doesn’t?!
