Rowling Visits Order of the Phoenix Set

J.K. Rowling has just updated her official website
diary page with some news about book 7 and a visit she made to the set of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Rowling says that despite the hardship of trying to find paper to write on in downtown Edinburgh, "The book's still going well."

She also talks about her recent visit to Leavesden Studios, home of the Harry Potter movies: "It was exciting to see some of the new Order of the Phoenix sets, but most of all to see the actors again – slightly unnerving to realise that nearly all of them are taller than me now (I speak, of course, of the teenagers; Michael Gambon was always taller than me, and very lovely he looked in his new robes, too.) Apart from the pleasure of seeing Tom Felton, Devon Murray, Alfred Enoch, Sitara Shah (and waving through the door at Bonnie Wright, who was busy being tutored), I had a great time talking to Dan and Matthew about books, Rupert about how his sisters never wind him up, Oliver and James about how difficult they find it to wind each other up, and Emma about Hermione's love life. Also met, and had a long chat, with Evanna Lynch (Luna), about whom there is only one possible thing to say: perfect."

The Rumours and the Extra Stuff sections have also been updated.
