Friday Boost: Magic Afoot
Delightful and delicious. Entrancing and enchanting.
Welcome to another Friday Boost. I love going on a quest for these pieces. If you know of good ones I’ve missed, let me know at email@example.com. I’ll check them out!
Writer Everlasting is a reader-supported publication. None of this happens without you! You can keep these coming by subscribing below.
Did you know famous writers can own bookstores, too? Gayla Gray has found some, as well as some magical independents.
I discovered Nishant Jain (@SneakyArt) at the Substack Writers Unite DM page on Twitter. (There’s another name for it, I’m sure but I don’t know what it is.) He’s a writer/artist/podcaster who shows how he does it on clever, fun videos. A triple threat! I loved it and knew you would, too.
Fog Chaser is a musician and composer based in the Northwest. His ‘Meditations’ are perfect for writing sessions, or just listening for sheer pleasure. A poem by Langston Hughes, and more.
I’m sensing a theme of enchantment as we go along here, so let’s go all the way! Archita Mittra writes deliciously about Fae Folk and fairy godmothers and Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’. Recipes, too.
In this piece Summer Brennan writes about posing nude during her college days. If I had preconceived notions about what it would be like, Summer shatters them. In her own way, she makes it magical.
Janeen McCrae is in search of the elusive masterpiece. She tells us in the most delicious words how she may have found it.
I hope you liked this week’s selections. Let me know in the comments below so I can get a feel for what you want to see here at the Friday Boost, but, more important, let the writers know in their own spaces that you’ve read them. It means so much when we know our words are getting through.
