Back to work now. See you when I've finished something X
.@PhoenixorFlame7 One of my old classes (when I was teaching) used to sing the theme from Rawhide at me. The memory still makes me laugh.
And 3) (brace yourselves) I sometimes have a drink even when I haven’t finished a book. Yes, that’s how rock and roll I really am.
1) I haven’t handed in ANY kind of novel to my publishers. I’m only half way through my current book. 2) It isn't a ‘romantic’ novel.
There's a story in today’s Mail that I was in a London bar on Monday ‘celebrating’ handing in a ‘romantic novel’ to my publishers...
Newt only meant to stay in New York for a few hours. Circumstances ensured that he remained... for the length of a movie, anyway. X
Thank you, thank you, for being the kind of people who get excited about an anagram #myspiritualhome
OK, the next riddle is... kidding. As I said (was it only 2 days ago?) I've got a novel to finish and a screenplay to tweak.
Well, I'm limp, frankly - limp. A few suggestions were spookily close to the script!
.@EmyBemy2 YES!!!!!!!!!!!! People, we have a winner!
.@Witcheeha No, Newt would never run away from anything. He's a Hufflepuff with guts.
.@_Pluviophile He didn't go there for fun and he didn't get lost, but nice guess...
.@C_Murphy3695 Newt certainly wouldn't want to harm beasts. He's a magi zoologist, after all.
.@Haaltg Can you imagine what the UFMAASE will look like one the special effects people have woven their magic?
"Newt Scamander only meant..."
New hint, because you're coming up with really good suggestions: the sentence begins "Newt Scamander only" #correctedbecauseoftypo
No invented words, that wouldn't be fair. "Newt Scamander only went to New York to find a Pulkmahjkk". Not that.
.@LoveTheCello I promise I'm not laughing. I'm happy that other people love puzzles, riddles and anagrams as much as I do!
.@percafect @Austinterlude Good question. Very, very good question.
.@troyentyler Yes, wishful thinking. 'Say details' isn't normal English usage and this is about Newt's adventure, 70 years before Harry's.
.@Austinterlude Ooo, I like that. It's not right, but it's the kind of thing Newt would say. #hint4 Let's examine the 'depart' part...
Typo alert: ScamandEr, not ScamandAr (long day). Now take out 'Newt Scamander' and 'New York' and see what you can make of the rest! #hint3
Nor even: "Eye am havving a larf their's nuthing hid in thair." There is a sentence in normal English about Newt Scamandar there!
Nor does it say: "Reed ths missaj backwurds to diskover storey of ateth Hallow."
An example of something it doesn't say: "I brung bick Harry. U gladd. Me go wurcke now. No speak."
#Hint2 There's only one sentence hidden in the anagram, it is written in natural English and it concerns Newt Scamandar. #3hintsreally
#helpfulhint The solution is the first sentence of a synopsis of Newt's story. It isn't part of the script, but sets the scene.
"Newt Scamander's History of New York Fauna: One town, my tale" Warmer.
.@jk_rowling's cryptic tweet,"Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry!" is clearly an anagram meant to warn us that her "fur work canoe may fray." Duh.

Something to ponder while I'm away X
Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.
.@peruseproject See, now I'm tempted to post a riddle or an anagram. Must resist temptation... must work...
Very busy at the moment working on a novel, tweaking a screenplay and being involved in @lumos campaigns. Back when I've finished something!

@jk_rowling Thoughts from New Zealand on such a momentous day. An incredible event to follow and experience from an outside point of view.

@jk_rowling America could learn a thing or two from Scotland. Keep the peace!

@jk_rowling I've been watching from Mexico and I'm very impressed. I've never seen anything like it #indyref

@jk_rowling I'm from the USA, but I have a huge amount of respect for Scotland. I've seen so much more friendliness than I have hate.

@jk_rowling Scotland today gave to the rest of the world a very big lesson in democracy.
Retweeted by J.K. Rowling
@jk_rowling Yes, most countries would be close to war but Scotland has showed how you should handle important matters in a respectful manner
Retweeted by J.K. Rowling
#indyref Been up all night watching Scotland make history. A huge turnout, a peaceful democratic process: we should be proud.
.@DaveGilmour1875 "We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided." Also me...
Big day in Scotland tomorrow #indyref. My head says no and my heart shouts it - but whatever happens, I hope we're all friends by Saturday.
