Myth in fantasy

Noted author and TERF supporter JK Rowling is popping a lot of Harry Potter mythology bubbles. Not the stuff in the books, but the cottage industry of tourism and speculation that’s grown up around her fabled writing of the books.

For years, fans of the beloved “Harry Potter” franchise have flocked to Edinburgh, Scotland, to visit the sites where author J.K. Rowling had reportedly started writing the series.But now, Rowling has revealed Edinburgh is actually not where the writing of the boy who lived began.”I was renting a room in a flat over what was then a sports shop,” Rowling said on Twitter, with an image of where she resided at the time of writing the first book. “The first bricks of Hogwarts were laid in a flat in Clapham Junction.”
