I love this video about 7 Lessons writers can learn from Harry Potter! (It does contain spoilers.)
The lesson I related to the most, was very relatable to my own life, not just writing, which was:
“Even if you have two characters that seem fundamentally different, you can find a commonality between them that creates a point of human connection.”
I think this is so very true of asexuals. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that is the lack of sexual attraction and I am hetero-asexual, not heterosexual. Meaning I am attracted to guys romantically – not sexually. Exact definition is heteroromantic.
So even though some of the asexuals I meet at my asexual meetups that I organise in my city, are almost completely different to me, we all share the one commonality of being asexual and that makes us relatable to each other and therefore helps me to meet people who I probably would never have met up with before and that is great!
Which is your favourite writing lesson from Harry Potter? Love to read you, so comment below!
As always, stay quirky and write soon
