As some of you know, I'm trying my hand at a fantasy trilogy. I am still in the research/planning stages, so it's still a little baby waiting to grow.
One thing I'm having to consider is what type of magic I want to use and which characters can use it.
Do I want wands or a staff like Gandalf has in Lord of the Rings?
Do I want the characters to have natural magical ability, kind of like they do in X-Men?
Do I want it to be more witch-like and involve magical potions or special elixirs like in Harry Potter?
What type of magic do you like to read about in books?
What's your favourite book with magic in it and what did you love about it?
