Magic Use Elicits Strong Reactions
Pondering one of my book excerpts, Performing Miracles, led to some jotted-down thoughts:
- Public use of magic elicits strong reactions from everyone.
- Usually fear but sometimes awe.
- First impressions are critical.
- Must overcome—or confirm—initial doubt and anxiety.
- Awe can be just as troublesome as fear.
- Consequences either way.
(I frequently take notes in bullet-point format.)
