Early in my career, as I watched my wandmaker father wrestling with substandard wand core materials such as kelpie hair, I conceived the ambition to discover the finest cores and to work only with those when my time came to take over the family business. This I have done. After much experimentation and research, I concluded that only three substances produce wands of the quality to which I am happy to give the illustrious name of Ollivander: unicorn hair, dragon heartstring and phoenix feather. Each of these costly and rare materials has its own distinct properties. The following represents a short summary of my researches into each of the three Supreme Cores. Readers should bear in mind that each wand is the composite of its wood, its core and the experience and nature of its owner; that tendencies of each may counterbalance or outweigh the other; so this can only be a very general overview of an immensely complex subject.

Using Myths for Writing PromptsWriting prompts are an excellent way to stay in good writing shape. We post a daily writing prompt on our Facebook page. It is also available on our Creative Blog.If you’re looking for some inspiration, you may enjoy an article I wrote last year about using Lyrics as Writing Prompts. I am always looking for new writing exercises, and I wanted to explore the concept of myths as prompts. I think this could be a great exercise for your writing group.What is a myth?A myth is a traditional, usually ancient story involving supernatural beings, ancestors, or heroes. It is used to explain aspects of the natural world or to show the psychology, customs, or ideals of a society. Myths exist in every culture across the globe. Examples include Eros and Psyche, the Myth of Creation, Daedalus and Iccarus,Noah and the Great Flood, the myth of Arthur and Camelot, and The Rain Queen.Why don’t you write a myth using one of these ideas as inspiration?
Really? You really want that?
Ry, I’ve waited and wished for you for a very long time. Believe me, you’d never have to beg in order for my answer to be yes.
We really have danced circles around each other, haven’t we? I wish we could have told each other sooner, spent less time being afraid the other wouldn’t feel the same.
I love you, Ry. I’ve never loved anyone before but, even if I had, what I feel for you… It would have eclipsed everything else. I’m so lucky and just having you in my arms like this is more than I ever thought could be possible.
I need you, too. Sometimes I think I need you more than you’ll ever need me.
I just wish you’d try for us. Don’t you want more? I want to have it all with you. I know you’re afraid, but I’d be there. You’d never have to face anything alone, I swear. Please, Ry. Please say it, just once. You and I… we are so much more than just friends.
