She’s a never-ending source of creativity and J.K. Rowling has just released the first part of her “History of the Quidditch World Cup” for fans to enjoy.

The “Harry Potter” scribe put together a 2,400-word essay for her Pottermore.com website to explain the curious sport, played by wizards and witches in her uber-popular fantasy novel series, and the second half of the story will go live next week.

Pottermore CEO Susan L. Jurevics told press, "We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to publish such an imaginative and engaging story from J.K. Rowling about the history of the Wizarding world’s most exciting sport."

"We’re committed to being the only digital destination where fans can discover new original content about the world of Harry Potter from J.K. Rowling. 'History of the Quidditch World Cup' helps us not only fulfill that mission, but it also serves to entertain and delight our community."
