J.K. Rowling’s Handwritten Harry Potter Notes

By Dianna Dilworth 

When J.K. Rowling was working on the fifth Harry Potter book, she mapped it out on a piece of lined paper.

The handwritten sheet which informed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, includes chapter titles, plot points and timelines among other details that helped her with the writing.

Additional columns map out subplots including the titles: “Prophecy, “Cho/Ginny,” “D.A.,” “Dumbledore’s Army,” “O of P,” “Snape/Harry,” and “Hagrid and Grawp.” (Via Open Culture). We’ve got the whole sheet for you to explore after the jump.
