In the novel I'm writing I have a character that needs to learn how to effectively (and not recklessly) wield magic. I've never read books with actual "magic systems" before (would love suggestions here). The magic system I have requires the MC (and also the reader) to learn the basics of how magic works in the world of my book and also requires a scene with the MC learning how to wield that magic. I am mainly an essay writer. I'm used to explaining things well, but I don't want to make the story boring here, and slow down the plot or cause readers to skim over it. It'd be great to have a 'training scene' that's actually engaging. I will say that the system of magic I came up with is intriguing in and of itself (at least to me) so I am hoping that helps when doing this scene. But I don't want to write TOO much about it in this one spot if I can avoid it. Anyone have any tips here?
