J.K. Rowling Mapped Out Harry Potter's Fate On A Scrap of Notebook Paper

I always love to watch the DVD extras of a movie to take a glimpse of the creative process -- how ideas shifted and metamorphosed over time, what things were dropped by the wayside, and how the story we see now eventually came into being.This image of J.K. Rowling's plot spreadsheet for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is fascinating in its peek into Rowling's creative process. You can see how many different balls she was juggling (and since it's such a large book, this is presumably only one of many such pages). Take a look!
