In a new interview by the Associated Press, Rowling reflects on what it felt to finish Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and her plans post-Potter. Quotage:

Only I knew what it was like to be generating this world as it became bigger and bigger and bigger and more and more people were invested in it."
