Types of magic to fit any story

untitled

Stories with magic of any kind are tough for me to resist. Throw in a magical creature or two and I’m hooked! Not only do I love reading about magic but I also love writing about it too. I’m frequently scouring the internet looking for new powers for my characters when writing stories, so I decided to put them together here. These are some but not everything, however this is a good start.
