On Writing and Worldbuilding
Yes, a book that has recently released covers how to integrate magic systems into story telling. I won’t tell you how you can do it, firstly because I feel that will take away from the author’s hard work they put into writing the book, secondly I simply wouldn’t have the space to write a chapter of a book in this answer. I will however provide you with the introduction from that chapter of the book which explains what it is about:
So you have a magic system with meticulous limits where only gay wizards can shoot lightning bolts as well as it having an air of mysteriousness and possibility so nobody knows when a demon will eat characters without plot armour. That is fantastic, but what comes next? Having an interesting magic system is not just about how nuanced your rules are, or how much of a spectacle it can be. Fireworks and fireballs are great, but they can feel hollow unless your magic system is integrated into the story in a meaningful way. As a case study, we will look at how one magic system is integrated into its story in Avatar: The Last Airbender and the sequel series The Legend of Korra. We will discuss where DiMartino and Konietzko did it well, and a couple of times where they… didn’t.
The book is written by Timothy Hickson who also runs the Youtube channel HelloFutureMe which explores writing and worldbuilding techniques. The book can be bought on Amazon as either a paperback or as a downloadable book for the kindle or kindle app.
Note that, as I bought the book, I may be biased in favour of it. However, I am in no way affiliated with Timothy Hickson, I am simply a fan of his work.
