Yeah, yeah, "just look at the thesaurus!" Well, I did! And it sucks. So I'm coming to you all. In my fantasy WIP, everyone is born with magic. But it works like a muscle -- if you don't use it, it weakens. The more you practice, the stronger you get. So some people don't use their magic and prefer to use melee weapons, but others use it regularly and are quite good. I'm just having an issue with the word "magic," for many reasons. Mainly, it denotes a supernatural quality, but in my world, it's not supernatural, it's natural. Also, "magic" is stupid. It reminds me of children and.. well, magicians. So! Here's a few example sentences so you get the context of what I'm asking. "I want to be trained in magic." "I don't know what kind of magic I have." "I am a skilled magician"/"I am quite skilled with magic." "They were juggling balls of magic with ease." "Don't use your magic here." "Her overuse of magic weakened her." And so on, and so forth. I just need something else to call it that isn't so... generic. Make sense? Please and thanks?
