For me the most interesting part is:

For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it

because really, wasn't that the problem with the final books generally? Marching to a conclusion that didn't entirely feel earned in so many respects, just because it was what she'd thought up when she wrote the first book?

As to the shipping bit, my extreme, sincere, and heartfelt sympathies to R/Hr shippers who feel like she's being mean to Ron and undermining something they loved, because that's not cool. But no sympathies extended to those who bullied other shippers on the basis of their ship being canon or not, and used JKR's words in interviews to do so. That's the sweet, sweet irony of the whole thing, to me.
