I’m making a new character!

I have come up with an idea for a new character for the second draft. I don’t know how well it’s going to go, but here’s to trying! *raising earthen goblet filled with ale into air*

I came to realize that a there are a lot of magical people in this book that I’m writing. Specifically, a lot of them are just born with it. But what if there was someone who wasn’t? With the way that magic is set up in the book, that seems almost impossible. But it isn’t… there is a way. It is known as crystal magic

And what if that person not born with such abilities were to be considered on par with some of the great magicians of their time, all without a single magical bone in their body? It’s an interesting idea, and I want to pursue it. I hadn’t been pursuing it for some time, as I thought I had too many characters. But I offed a few formerly major characters and had room for another.

Also, a Wiccan dude from Tumblr wanted me to make him into a character. That may have played a part in this whole thing.

He most definitely played a part.

And yeah, I’ll admit it. This is super friggin’ awesome.

Also, be sure to check my new short story “Little Folk” at Inkitt!

I would like some opinions:

In my fantasy series, I am heavily considering having witches as a completely different species from human but looking the same, like elves. However, I am also aware that there are real witches, such as pagans and wiccans and the like. Is it ok to have them represented as such in the series, or would it just cause more problems in the actual community?
