I have (just now) a simple goal, I want to write a good short story. I have no idea about what, but that's no problem just now. As exercises, i will try to write even shorter stories. I 'm pleased to put the storys in the world and time we live in. But, I would like to try something with "magic". I don't read much fantasy, (maybe 15 books). Most of them have very complicated magic, it would take a short story just to describe the magic and several other to describe the environment and a novella to describe the characters. Anyone have some small nice magic that could be found now (the year 2017) on the earth we are living on, without affecting the society too much. Who has it? are there side effects? Talk with dogs? Reading wife's mind? Seeing through paper wrapped around gifts?
