Most of us like books and movies depicting magic such as harry potter, but sometimes those who are ignorant of pagan beliefs confuse these fictional tales with real life beliefs. I am a writer working on a story that is of a fictional witch who discovers mass elemental magic. I have used some pagan beliefs but they are highly fictionalized for entertainment purposes. My question to you ladies is this, would you find it irritating that a Wiccan would use some aspects of what is true to us, for a fictional tale? Rest assured that IF my book is ever published it will have some kind of disclaimer so no young witch gets caught up in the fantasy and takes my words as a guide for new witches.Answer Question

Although I've come full circle in my spiritual journey, and as of very recently I no longer practice using any magic, etc, I think the book sounds really cool and I wouldn't think people would be offended. Any novel that is clearly fiction is going to have that aspect to it. I mean, there are novels that try to be realistic about magic, etc. but they still have clearly fictional aspects regarding the way magic is presented. Anyway, good luck with your book. I would love to read it, it sounds very interesting. : ) I hope it get published!

It wouldn't bother me at all. So often the truth is hidden in plain sight on movies anyway, that no one believes it. And the funny thing is that although Harry Potter is an amazing series, its just ridiculously false - yet everyone thinks its the truth. Twisted I know. Anyways it doesn't matter if you poured out secretes in your book...society teaches its not real...and that is what ppl believe.
