JK Rowling is the author of the Harry Potter books as well as a Twitter superstar. On April 3, she posted a series of tweets directed at aspiring writers (or aspiring artists of any kind, really). Her advice is wonderful and probably very helpful to countless people.

She started by quoting someone else's tweet, one that read, "HEY! YOU! You're working on something and you're thinking 'Nobody's gonna watch/read/listen' Finish it anyway." To that advice, JK Rowling added "There were so many times in the early 90s when I needed somebody to say this to me. It's great advice for many reasons."
