Magic and Magical Realism Writing Prompts for January 15, 2022, Free PDF

Written answers might be magical or magical realism. There are six picture prompts with text ideas to help get started, or then there are six picture-only prompts for those who are inspired by images. Included is one coloring page for any children who might be present at the session, also. The pages may be printed in black and white or color. Some people may be clever enough to use tablets for electronic responses. 

Some people get Tarot card readings, and some people do the readings. Some people have no clue what is involved so this prompt might not be selected by them. It is interesting to hear about readings, and I recently reviewed a 10th-anniversary edition of the book The True Nature of Tarot: Your Path to Personal Empowerment by Diane Wing, M.A. although I do not understand much about the process. It is probably why this theme is on my mind. I know people who enjoy having readings or even take them seriously. Perhaps this prompt will help some people enjoy a quick write.

It is possible to purchase Harry Potter wands on Amazon and other sites, and so we all see them online. Good old ‘arry. I notice in many British films there is an ‘arry and love how it is pronounced (Harry). 
This prompt is about deciding which want you would want to select to cure the world of evils, or suggests you might want to design your own. Which would you like?

There are two more prompts in the PDF I’ll let you find. And for the children who might be dragged along willingly or unwillingly, a picture to color.
