GUD's managed to scoop a short interview of Ms. Rowling regarding her upcoming short fiction publication--according to Wikipedia, her first!

* Where did "Greyer Havens" come from; what were you thinking?

I wanted to write something sinister, something to help me escape from the view that my writing should always provide somewhere safe for children to escape to, some sort of Never-never land where they can't age. I have children myself, and, let me tell you, they do age.

When you're writing children's books, you need to be a ruthless killer. Look at CS Lewis. Did he have Aslan escape from the Stone Table: "with just one bound he was free"? No. The girls get to watch the lion being trussed up, shaved, and executed. Are we going to say children aren't as tough now as they were in Lewis's day?

So I was in IBCA class, sneaking a peak into my email before the lesson and I see this. I didn't exactly realize it until half-way through the class period - then I started to get excited. "WWHHAAATT??"

I was about almost running in the hallway to catch up with my girlfriend to tell her the awesome news of the interview when I realized... oh boy.

I feel extremely embarrassed. XD haha

kudos to whom ever thought it all up! haha
