I found this video to be so helpful! Writing super powers and magic by Jenna Moreci. She made some really good points about thinking up all the details of a super/magical power before you even start writing about it.
I think with the rising popularity of YA fantasy novels, being able to write about magic and special powers will become more and more important for writers. I mean, it’s always important to be yourself when you’re writing and to write the stories that you really care about. But, magic has been popular for two decades and it never hurts to include some fantasy elements into your story to keep the fans happy.
Love to hear what you think about the video. Leave a comment below!
