1.
 
 How Rowling started her writing career:
Joanne Rowling was born on July 31, 1965 in Yate, England.From the childhood, Joanne really loved reading books and thought about writing as a wayto create magicHer first story was written when she was six-years-old, because she wanted to have a storyto tell her sister Di and Di was thrilled by the story, and the parents amazed. However, they
 
did not encourage their daughter to pursue her writing in any way.After graduating from Exeter University with honors, Joanne went through a series of jobs,most of them secretarial. She found her jobs boring.The only consolation she had was in writing. She wrote many short stories, and abandonedseveral novels. However, her work ended up in another box with all other stories, and her self-esteem declined.
 Idea of harry potter:
when she was on the way to London, and her train stopped. It was some kind of mechanical problem, which required a delay of four hours. She was staring out the window, when theidea for Harry Potter appeared in her mind very clearly.
2.How she has achieved success:
She started writing the book in 1990, and completed five years later. But not many peoplethought she could succeed as a children’s book writer. Twelve publishers rejected the book  before a small London publisher finally accepted to take it on.Even then, the editor of Bloomsbury (the publishing company), out of his doubt about thesuccess of the book, advised Rowling to get a day job as it was unlikely she would makemoney from it.
 
But Rowling’s belief in her work didn’t sway. The book was eventually published in 1997,with a print run of 1000, five hundred of which distributed to libraries.Following the release of the book, a series of events started playing out to catapult a oncemassively rejected author into the world’s most successful and richest author today:A couple of months after her book was published, she got a grant of £8000 from theScottish Arts Council for her to concentrate on her writing. And the following year she gota deal of $105,000 from Scholastic Inc. to publish the book in the US.Since then, Rowling and her Harry Potter Series novel have never looked back. They haveleapt from one success to another, beyond anyone’s imagination.II/ Type and Summary-Type: fictional-Summary:III/ Huge success-literature value-social/cultural/ financial values
