All women born with potential for growing magic, which wakens from ages 5-8. It is ‘lost’ by touch between individuals. Most high class women wear gloves and veils. But one village, Miłjǎta, ‘cleanses’ girls as toddlers, to avoid ‘evil’ magic.

Title Change?

I've been thinking about changing my blog title. Here are the three options + taglines
1. Broken Pencil~Writing with a broken pencil is pointless.
2. Million Word~ It would take a million words to thank you for your love.
3. The Wordsmith's Shelf~Here their be dragons, portals, wizards, and all matter of litarary wonders, as well as the occasional musical, political, or spiritual musing

The stories behind them.
1. A quote in school organizer; Because sometimes I feel this blog is pointless.
2. From "No greater gift", VBS music..."It would take a million words to thank you for your love"
3. Old one.

I'd love comments.
