I’d love to be able to use some of these! Even Rita Skeeter’s Quick-Quotes Quill would be useful 🙂

Being a writer is tough! On my blog I am looking at ways in which a writer’s life could be made easier.
Following on from my post ‘Useful Super Powers For Writers’ I thought it would be cool to look at some useful spells for writers, which could transform their creative life.
As I adore Harry Potter I have to use J.K. Rowling’s spells for this post.
For noting: a writer would need a magical wand for these spells and may need to have studied at Hogwarts but that’s just low-level detail.
So, here are the spells from Harry Potter, that I think would be really useful for writers:
- Cheering Charm.This clever spell causes the person upon whom the spell was cast to become happy and contented. Heavy-handedness with the spell may cause the person to break into an uncontrollable laughing fit. The writer could…

I’d love the super speed, or even time travel or time manipulation

Ever wondered how your writing world could be transformed if you had super powers?
I have been busy researching super powers (it amazes me the stuff I get up to when I am trying to avoid writing my second draft…sigh!) and I have come up with 8, which I believe would be useful for writers.
- Super Human Speed & Endurance.This would allow the writer to hammer out words at an astonishing speed and carry on without ever getting tired. Our books could be written in a matter of hours as opposed to days, months, years or even decades.
- Invulnerability. If a writer possessed this power, they would never have to worry about getting negative feedback, unwanted criticism or literary rejections. Can you imagine a life without any emotional breakdowns over uncomfortable feedback?
- Time Travel.This amazing power would let the writer travel into the past and…

As an idea flows
Only to be erased
Though it may be hours
Nothing seems to stick
Except eraser crumbs
My hands tremble
Something has to give
For progress to be made
I love these! I think I could use a Writer’s Block one or one for getting my writer’s sh*t together sometime.
During a long and drawn out procrastination session I created some of my own writer greeting cards. If I don’t meet my writing goals this week at least I can say – “but I designed some greeting cards!”
There are some key moments in a writer’s career that I think deserve a greeting card.
I have also tried to capture the feelings and emotions that are associated with these special times.
- When you finish writing your book.
I don’t know about anyone else but when I finished my draft a few weeks ago I felt like the woman on my greeting card.
Writing 70k words should be celebrated even though you feel like a shadow of your former self and the sight of your draft makes you want to cry uncontrollably.
Maybe inside the card the message might read ‘Now you can start editing!’
- Thanking a writer friend
