Julia recently asked me what I would ask Jo's editors about Book 7 if I had a chance (no, it's not likely).
Hmmm. Would I try to wheedle something out of them?
I decided I would ask what they loved about it and did they find the ending satisfying. That's what's important to me.
It surprised me to discover this. I used to theorize a lot over on HPANA, but I have realized that I don't want to figure it out, I just want it to be enjoyable and feel "right." I want to have moments again where I ask myself "how did she think of that?" and times when I get that shock of recognition of something she is lampooning or just the funny details she adds. In Book 1 it was the list of things Harry needed for Hogwarts that hooked me. And in Book 3 the smart-aleck mirror. I want more moments like those before the series ends. Lots more moments like those.
What would you ask?
