#22 – How Quidditch Was Created…

J.K. Rowling created Quidditch after having an argument with her boyfriend. She even said if she didn’t get involved in a fight with her boyfriend that one night, Quidditch never would have been invented. However, Rowling didn’t invent the magical sport immediately when she walked out of the fight.

She went to a bar, got a little bit tipsy, and invented the sport on broomsticks. To this day, J.K. Rowling doesn’t know how that fight with her then-boyfriend made her come up to the idea of Quidditch.
