Harry Potter author JK Rowling has updatedopens in new window her site to squash part of a recent article that appeared in the press a few days ago. A tabloid paper in the UK quotedopens in new window Ms. Rowling as saying that "I’m up to about 750 pages now."

JKR posted on her site earlier today:

JKR has written 750 pages of book 7, and told a journalist this at the tea party for 'Driving Lessons'.

Oh pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease. I haven't written 750 pages of book seven, and if I had, I'd be very worried, as I'm not close to finishing it yet.

I was at the tea party for Driving Lessons, though, so this isn't pure fiction. The journalist reports that I said that Rupert is 'absolutely terrific' in the film. He is, so that bit shouldn't be in the rubbish bin at all.

Thanks to Peter and everyone who emailed.
