LONDON, England --  Author J.K. Rowling inspired a young Egyptian woman to continue her dream of writing no matter who may be laughing at her.

The woman tweeted the famed Harry Potter author over the weekend saying she inspired her to write.

"However, in Egypt, girls can't do anything freely as boys.  They laugh at me when I say I am a writer."

Rowling took a break between soccer tweets and replied.

"Don’t you dare let their laughter extinguish your ambition.  Turn it into fuel!  Big hugs from one writer to another x"

And then Twitter took over.

Inspired?  Indeed.
