Books and Writing Quidditch

Thinking up the name for Quidditch

I like inventing names. Quiddich — the name Quiddich — it took me ages to find the right name for it, took me about two days and I’ve still got the notebook I did it in and you can see Quiddich at the bottom of the last page of this notebook underlined about 50 times because when I stumbled across it I knew it was the right one.
