Though we continue to hope that JK Rowling can
make it happen with Book VII of Harry Potter and have the final
installment on shelves by 7-7-07, the author has hit what sounds to be writer's
block. Well, than and the fact that she now dreams of Harry Potter; which
is sort of weird.
Harry Potter Book VII Tougher Than Expected for Rowling
JK Rowling tells AFP
that she is having bizarre dreams placing her in the role of Harry
Potter. I don't know what the hell the dreams have to do with anything,
but Rowling also admits that she is having trouble finishing her final book.
The 41-year-old hinted that the stress was getting to her as she writes
the closing chapters of the seventh and final Potter novel -- in which she
has hinted that the beloved hero may be killed off.
"I'm now writing scenes that have been planned, in some cases, for
a dozen years or even more," Rowling revealed.
The author continues by making a statement that could easily freak out even
the smallest of Potter readers.
"I both want, and don't want, to finish
this book (don't worry I will)," she wrote.
I don't want to speculate, but it then sounds like Rowling may be giving
us a hint about a horcrux Potter may have to find in the final book.
"As the narrator I knew perfectly well that the Horcrux was jammed
in a hidden nook in the fireplace, while as Harry I was searching for it
in all kinds of other places, while trying to make the people around me
say lines I had pre-arranged for them.
"Meanwhile waiters and waitresses who work in the real cafe in which
I have written huge parts of book seven roamed around me as though on stilts,
all of them at last 15 feet (4.5 metres) high."
These symptoms are a sign of what? According to JK Rowling, she needs to
lay off the caffeine.
Harry Potter and the Order of
the Phoenix opens to theatres on July 13th, 2007.
