- Surviving it!
- You remained as the species and gender you began the day with. This is not to be under-appreciated.
- You have not faced an irate fairy godmother, witch or wizard.
- You have not flooded out the home of your boss or set loose an army of magically enchanted broomsticks you have no idea how to return to normal.
- You, if you are of the witch persuasion, are invited to royal christenings and the like so there is no need for the authorities to go totally over the top when it comes to spinning wheels.
- You go for a walk with your loved ones and come back to find your porridge, chairs and beds are exactly as you left them.
- Whatever gets blown up by a spell was meant to detonate.
- For those lesser species, seeing a fairy godmother like my Eileen go out on her rounds can be very reassuring. They know she's not coming to them so they can get on and have a nice quiet day. The excitement of seeing who she'll turn into a frog this time can be relished by someone else.
- You watch Cinderella's spells wear off and see that had been the coach is now a pumpkin (and looking rather the worse for wear too). You are glad you were not involved in any way (nor dragged into it as unsuspecting passers-by often can be).
- The rest of the magical world around you also seems to be in one piece. It has been a successful day all round then!
A good day in the magical world can be defined as:-
I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems. I love setting my work in my magical world, the Fairy Kingdom, and my favourite character is Eileen, who believes hypocrisy is something that happens to other people without caring that statement is hypocritical in itself! Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
