Ohmigosh, oh my gosh, OH MY GOSH!!!
I am SOOO excited. No, I didn’t get into SQ (at least not that I know
of, yet– I’ll keep you posted). No, it’s this
wonderful, beautiful interview with J.K. Rowling
in which we get
snippets such as this:
There’s a lot of book done – that’s all I want to say because if I
give a date and then I pass it everyone will be upset. I will say that
I have a beginning, a middle and an end – you could read it all the way
through and I know a lot of Harry Potter fans will say just give it to
us but I’m perfectionist and I want a bit more time to tweak. I really
am getting there and I have to laugh when I read the bits about writers
block because I don’t think I’ve ever been blocked in my life! I’m
loving the writing and now the revising and I’m getting on really well.

And this:
Well, we’ve obviously got a new Defence Against The Dark Arts
teacher because Professor Moody wouldn’t want the job again having been
locked in a trunk for a year! It’s a woman this time. You may see a
little more of Mundungus and there’s a new sorting hat song.

Is the book going to be as long as book four was? JK: Yes, it is
looking that way – it’s already passed Azkaban, so I think yes, we are
looking at Goblet of Fire length.

And especially THIS!!!:

Lizo: Finally, what’s your message to children who’ve been waiting
for the next book for a two and half years? JK: It’s coming and it’s a
lot nearer than you’d think if you read some newspapers – just trust
Oh, I trust you. Really I do. Squee!! (Cap’n Kathy doesn’t read
this blog so I can say that :) ) Oh, I’m so happy! Actual news! Female
DADA teacher, a beginning, middle, and end, GoF length (which means
it’ll last me at least a day :) ), and “a lot nearer than you’d think.”
Canon comin’ our way!
