The Magical Properties of Reading and Writing – Daily Quote


I love magic. Books have always provided a ready source of the elixir I crave. The book doesn’t have to be a fantasy with wizards, witches, or supernatural creatures. Books about history sweep me away to another time. Treatises, opinion pieces, and even diatribes expose me to different points of view. It doesn’t matter if the author minted their words yesterday or hundreds of years ago. My perceptions are altered, expanded, and perhaps changed.

Writing helps congeal thoughts, tightens reasoning and logic, and reveals contradictions. Even free writing helps access beliefs, concerns, and troubles we have buried below the surface. Once they see the light of day, they demand acknowledgment, and the process begins anew.

What magic will you find today?


Keep on writing.

  1. I very much appreciate your raising magic as an element in reading and writing. It’s great to think we’re doing something magic. Sometimes I write about faith as magic, meaning something supernatural we get to be a part of.

    I hope you’re very well.
