The Laws of Magic


20141013-104335-38615619.jpg
Great article by Brian Sanderson, author of the Mistborn series, on different types of magic and how to discern which type you use in your own stories. It deals specifically with fantasy, using Tolkien and JK Rowling, among others, as examples of what Sanderson calls “soft” and “hard magic.” Very intriguing and worth the read.
