Words are Magic

Words are one to the most potent, most reliable sources of magic found in today's world. As other magic drifts away or is forgotten, words hold on, swaying hearts, prompting action, and leading adventures. Words can transport you, ignite you, calm you, heal you. Words hold power, lots of power. Some are ignorant and irresponsible with their words, throwing them about, diminishing their value. But there are some who nurture their words, understand that in order to properly use them you must study them, and study them hard. For what is magic without practice? Did not all great magicians have to toil for hours on end, perfecting the tricks of the trade? Yes, and so must we as word magicians. They go to great lengths to reach and understand the lesser known words, so that the spells they cast may be that much more impactful. I can only hope, as an apprentice word master, that someday my words will say things that have never been said before. Words are magic, use them as such.

  2. Just one paragraph of yours can contain so much magic. Words are incredible. Like Dumbledore (or J.K. Rowling, rather) said, “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”

    1. I agree. I actually was a bit inspired by J.K. Rowling's quote (and a few others) when I wrote this. I'm glad you like my paragraphs :)
