I noticed last night while I was writing the synopsis for Wander that I appear to like writing stories about magic. I have one story about witches, two about wizards, and actually a few more that haven’t graduated up into WIP yet. Personally, I like witches more than wizards. I can’t say why, I just like the idea of witches better and I really think they get a bad rap. When I mention the word witch, what’s the mental image you get? Most likely, a hunchbacked hag stooping over a boiling cauldron with a wart on her nose. That’s even the image I get and I just find that sad. I think witches could be so much cooler. They can defy the stereotypes too and that was one thing I really tried to do with Sisters. I hope it works.
As a note, I found out recently that male witches are not wizards. They’re called witches too. I thought that was neat.
