I’ve spent the last few months contemplating that question, and finally decided that I am not a traditional Witch drowning in the denial cauldron; some things just work better in a particular way, and I need to take extra time to make my new ways work well with the old.
In this case the thing fighting modification is the way I share my magic. You see, I used to provide the following onsite services: commitment blessings, rekindling relationship rituals, banishing spells, and one-on-one magic through storytelling couching.
That kind of work requires travel, time, and space to concoct and charge ingredients and tools. Family, school and writing leave me little free time, and if you read Sex and Dark Moon Magic: Can’t Quit Witching, Part I, and Magaly’s Word Preserves: Can’t Quit Witching, Part II, you are aware of my space issues.
After a lot of thinking,
and more pouting than I care to admit to, I thought I had found a way to merge two of the things I love most: writing stories and sharing my witchery. I was over the dark moon and dancing in stone circles, my luvs. I was going to launch Magaly’s Word Preserves—custom sensual wishes, rituals, and spells crafted as stories—through Etsy.
Well, I can’t…
Writing that kind of spells would take too much time, and offer no profit. If I were a rich Witch, I would do it for free, but I’m not; I don’t know what is wrong with my bills, but the bastards refuse to pay themselves.
I like interactive home blessings, and they take almost half a day (preparation of the home and dwellers), relationship rekindling takes a lot of couching, and banishing something nasty out of someone else’s home… yes, requires time, time, time.
So I won’t be able to provide Magaly’s Word Preserves… not until I can figure out how to make it work for me and for you. I’m not too upset though… I’ve been thinking, visualizing… I see words, herbs, intent… I smell the brew that infuses words with power… Something is definitely brewing in my witchy mind, and I think you are going to like it. I’ll share soon…

In truth, absolutely nothing. I just LOVE Shelle's work, and need no excuse to show it off.
I'm just hoping she never sues me for grabbing without asking *cough, cough*
