Why so witchy?

How would you define “magic”?

Do you subscribe to the dictionary definition that describes magic as “the power of apparently influencing events by using mysterious or supernatural forces”? Or do you prefer a more spiritual take on things, like that of author and Wiccan, Scott Cunningham, who says

“magic is the practice of moving natural (though little-understood) energies to effect need change”.

Personally, I’m a fan of the latter. I love the idea of magic being a matter of manifesting energy – whatever that looks like to you – into the creation of something else.

And, at its heart, isn’t that essentially what writing is? You take your ideas and creativity and passion and you pour onto a page to a screen and you make something. I like thinking about all creativity that way.

Creating – especially writing – is my passion. And, as someone who embraces the more witchy side of life, calling this site The Word Witch just felt right.

So, with that out of the way, let’s go make some magic!
