Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling has once again taken to her Twitter account to share the news that writing is still her top priority, but has not given any further indication on what exactly that might be.  Jo tweets:

This is the real me, but you won't be hearing from me often I'm afraid, as pen and paper are STILL my priority at the moment.

As readers may recall, the Harry Potter author recently was quoted as saying she's "writing hard" on "several things at once."

Nice. I’m gonna wait anxiously to read the exact same message in 4 months. Really Jo… why twitt at all? At least change the text a little. Nothing against you wanting some time to write and all that, but that’s not what twitter is for.

Other than that I love ya, you crazy awesome writer! lol!

Actually she tweets almost the same thing once every 6 months. The only difference is this one added the word STILL. I think she has the account to keep some idiots from making fake JK Rowling accounts. We KNOW this is the real JK, so all others are easily recognizable as fakes. I wonder if you need to tweet once every 6 months to keep the account active.

cbm: Yes, if an account is unused for 6 months then Twirtter can remove it.

I’m frustrated and relieved at the same time.

I think she’s saying I’m still here and thinking about her readers and want us to know tht she is thinking about us. It’s like a friend popping in to say “Hi! Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you.” It takes time to write the great works tht she does and if she is working on several things at once then we can’t expect it to be out too soon. I’m glad she’s keeping in touch even if she does it only once every 6 mos because she has to.

I think she wants to make sure that no one is impersonating her out there on all those sights… ;-)

She’s hilarious. She basically tweets the same thing every time. She’s up to, like, three now, right?
