The people of the village where J. K. Rowling grew up have told her to stay away from them because her new book is supposedly all about them and pours shame and scorn on the villagers.
Don’t you just love it when people confuse fact and fiction?
Seriously, shut the fuck up, all of you. It’s not about you, and if it is, then why are you so angry about that? Or do you think she’s revealing something about you personally that you don’t want known?
Authors work in fiction and, sure, we take things from real life, but we exaggarate, bend, stretch, twist and mix them up. Stop thinking it’s all about you.
And if every writer had to avoid anyone they knew who may have had a passing influence in their work, then once I get published I’m not going to have a single friend left.
