About



Magic & Musings is a blog written by Megan, a twenty-something freelance writer and nerd-for-most things. It's a place to read about inspiring creatives, find your new favourite book or film, or just to discover what exciting (or not) adventures I've been on, if you're into that sort of thing. 

I'm always looking for new people to interview, so take a look at how to contact me using my 'Contact' page, and read through my interview archives by clicking 'Interview'! I'm particularly interested in hearing from women, queer, female-identifying, and non-binary folks who freelance, work for themselves, or do cool things in creative industries, but feel free to contact me anyway if you think we could chat about something rad.

You can see my writing in places other than my blogging safe haven by clicking the 'Portfolio' tab, and a lowdown on my dribs and drabs of fiction writing can be found under 'Fiction'. I'm in the process of writing a short story collection called Divinity, which you can find out more about here, so watch this space for more updates.

If you like what you read, I also have a Patreon if you fancy chucking a few pennies my way. But not actually chucking, because I would imagine that would hurt. Like if you drop a quarter off the Empire State Building, it can actually kill someone. But don't do that, seriously.

Here's some stuff I like:
Studio Ghibli films, rewatching Lost and Gossip Girl on a far-too-frequent basis, Bob Dylan vinyls, all Italian food, puppy cuddles and noses and toeses, speedruns and all manner of videogame-related nonsense, dresses that make me feel like Kate Bush, Mr Robot, decaf mochas with soya milk (coffee makes me loopy), Moomin pyjamas, all Zelda games but mainly Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time, anything and everything Lorde and Tavi Gevinson produce, cheesy K-dramas (Boys Over Flowers, am I right?), celebrating super awesome women and their work, books forever and always, whatever is living at the bottom of the ocean, tiny birds, haikus and rude limericks, Captain Marvel comic books, learning weird things about the human body (I know a LOT about the gut), handmade blankets, those funny little bulbous succulents, Lord of the Rings marathons literally every time I feel like it and I always feel like it.
