One of the taglines for my Wishcraft books, featuring loveable Wishcrafter Darcy Merriweather, is “Where there’s a witch, there’s a way.”
Which (witch?) is so true of the whole series, actually.
The phrase, however, started me thinking about witchy-type powers. Darcy can grant wishes. Others Crafters can disappear into thin air, bake a mean cupcake, grow amazing flowers, craft a spell…
But what power would I want?
There’s something to be said about invisibility. Think of the conversations you could overhear, the hilarious pranks you could pull.
Or maybe telepathy. Knowing what others are thinking. On second thought, cross that off—there are some things I probably don’t want to know.
Oh, oh! Or maybe unlimited free shopping? Groceries, clothes, tile and drywall (can you tell we’ve been renovating our bathroom?).
All pretty good options, but ultimately I think I’d choose teleportation. Only being a blink or a twitch away from another destination holds a lot of appeal. Especially when stuck in a traffic jam.
What would you choose for your witchy power?
