SURPRIIIIIIIIIIIISE!!!!!!!!!!

Hey guys, guess what?! Surprise, surprise, y’all get a very special post today – on Wednesday, yes, not Monday or Saturday – one that should be interesting to many of y’all. What is this post, you ask? Well, in honor of Kaley Kriesel’s recent blog launch, we engaged in a debate to 1) help her get some publicity for her AWESOME blog; and 2) tackle a controversial topic that we had differing views on. (Don’t worry; we kept it civil. ;P)

So! Without further ado, enjoy this bonus post: a debate over Harry Potter. 🙂

Guest Post: Magic vs. Fantasy

Introduction

Hey all!! Sorry for the day-late article… *coughs* Last night was the final night for Crazy Writing Week and let me tell you, it was HECTIC. (Plus side: I got over 4,000 words in in only 2 hours. XD) So! Yell at me all you want, and I will give you chocolate to console you. 😉

Today I’m honored to feature a writing friend of mine on The Pen Inspired. His views caught my attention when some writers decided to debate the use of magic in our works: is it Christian? Does God approve? Is magic good or evil, or both? What even is magic? I asked him to write a post for me on the topic, and he agreed.

So please join me in welcoming Mr. Noah Cochran!! *round of applause and cheers*
