We Did It Ooooooour Way!


Hi folks,

Back in 2008, Faith Hunter, David B Coe, C E Murphy and I came together to start a little blog about writing. We called it Magical Words, and we slowly gained followers who were friendly and excited and curious about what we had to say. Over the course of nearly ten years, we’ve seen new friends come and go, we’ve hosted a year of special guests, and attempted to change the format somewhat. Alas, now we’ve come to a decision. It’s time to put the blog to bed.

We’ve been honored to be of help to so many of you. You’ve become friends to us and to each other, and many of you have found successes large and small thanks to your start here. We hope that you’ll all continue to pursue the dream, and share what you’ve learned with those who come along behind you. It was our pleasure to share the time with you.

I want to extend a special thank you to all the writers who joined us, whether for a post or two, or for a season. We were delighted and grateful to host you here.

Faith, David and I will still be available through social media, personal websites and con appearances, but as of December 2017, this site as it exists now will cease to be. Thank you again, everyone. It’s been an amazing experience.

    Thank you and your guests for all your inspiring blogs! I haven’t been active in commenting lately, but this was the home site of my browser πŸ™‚
    And I enjoyed the book very much. Will there be a second book with the best blogs of the past few years?
    Anyway, thank you very much again and all the best. See you around on the social media.

    God, I’m going to miss this! I got the best advice on writing from this blog, and some of the kindest and most encouraging comments from the authors and readers. I saved a bunch of those to read again on those days when writing kicks my butt πŸ˜‰ I’ll never forget the generosity of David, Faith, Misty, and everyone else who time out of their busy lives to critique our words and give us pointers, and share their own triumphs and trials. I’ll never get over how amazing it is to be able to talk with and get advice from real honest-to-god published authors. Blessings to all of you, and my deepest thanks for the encouragement, the advice, the passion for words and books, and the hope and joy you’ve given to all of us for whom writing is a necessary part of life. Be well!!

    Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted here. Three or four years, maybe.

    Life is different now. I’ve grown up a lot. I drifted away from this site once work and other commitments took over, but I still have fond memories of the MW community at its height. Those were the days.

    I guess this is the last time I’ll be commenting here then.

    Well. To David, Faith, Misty and all the other authors who’ve made time in their busy schedules to make Magical Words truly magical: thanks for everything. You guys made a difference. I can’t think of a better compliment than that.
