Have you ever written a story and ended up contradicting yourself when it comes to the magic system? It’s easy to do as the story changes and requires something new from the magic. That’s why keeping track of it is so important.

You’ll need to watch the uses of magic, types of magic, its limitations, the beliefs around it, and how it impacts the society. Leigh Hull breaks down how to track your system in this presentation given live at the 2022 Virtual Writing Retreat.
