Our new Accio Quote! staffer Jules dug up this quote from Jo's website which is quite apropos of the moment:
FEBRUARY 28th 2006Jules and I say "Thanks for the extra chapters Jo!"
'This always happens. I make a plan, it looks nice and neat, then I get to actually write the book and realise that Harry can't possibly do all that in just one chapter. So what I thought were going to be two chapters have now become four. I still don't think the book [Book 7] will be as long as 'Phoenix', but if that keeps happening... no, it won't. I'm looking at the plan, and it can't. Surely. Please.
Nothing else I can tell you at the moment. Well, there's LOADS I could tell you at the moment, but I can't. Sorry'.
