“Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence.”
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
But when I write, I sign as K.M. Alleena.
My Grandfather described writing like this: Putting together a story is like putting together a basket. Each piece by itself hardly makes any sense. It is when all the pieces work together that the story really begins to be told. I see it the same way. If I must weave fibers together to make a basket, then I must weave words together to write a story.
I am currently a Creative Writing Major with Minors in Anthropology and Native American Studies. I study at SUNY Oswego. I am the President of a campus organization that I founded, called The Oswego State Pagan Association. If I'm not busy being a student, I'm busy being a Witch -- that means I'm out by the lake, reading something metaphysical, walking around admiring the weather and scenery or chatting down at The Fey Dragon on Bridge Street.
I am a proud Pagan, and am currently studying and trying to make sense of Norse (as well as other Germanic) Mythology and the Runes. I connect with Loki, Thor, Màni, Freyja, Sunne and Wodan. I identify as a witch, and as a writer. I love stories of any kind, from my Grandfather's ghost stories, to old folk tales, to poetry, to complicated novels or memoirs. I write Fantasy Fiction and Poetry most often.
I am an empath, and am trying to put into words just how that feels. I am not a healer; the rocks on my altar have that energy and ability. I read Tarot. I hear spirits, but I don't usually see them. I have a Macaw spirit guide. I am rooted and cannot fathom life among the stars. I love elemental spirits. Each thing that comes from the earth has an energy about it that can be used for magic. Meditation is essential. There is always something new to learn. Where there is a will, there is a way.
I make Jewelry. I am a lover of birds. I enjoy coffee, and am fond of tea. I know a few herbal remedies. All I do, it seems, is read and write. I watch Television just because of "Game of Thrones" and "Merlin." I adore Nintendo; specifically the Legend of Zelda series. I believe in radical self love. I believe in loving completely. I am a classic Pisces, but there are some plot twists. My Birthday is March Third. My favorite color is green. My favorite rock is Labradorite.
My goal for this blog is to keep it updated with my personal thoughts about Witchcraft and Paganism. I might fill it with stories of personal experiences, my own spells and rituals, commentary on current events in the pagan community, photographs and my opinion, or crafts and oddities from other witchy artisans. Anyone is free to contact me about anything on my blog. I accept inquiries as to sources for unknown images or articles. I accept guest submission ideas, interviews or blurbs. I will always do my best if you'd like me to write for your blog or if you'd like to write for mine. Please feel free to use what I post as a topic for discussion. While my work here is free for others to use, it is still my work, and I only require you respect that.
If you'd like to contact me, the best way is to email me:
However, I am a student with a busy schedule and can only get to the emails in my spare time.
I read them all, and will try to respond to them. If you'd like to stand out in a crowded inbox, please include mention of a Question OR Comment for "The Word Weaving Witch" in the title of your email.
I am also found across the web in various places:
| Tumblr | Twitter | Good Reads | Facebook | Etsy | deviantArt | Steam | Google + | Witchvox |
| Skype: kmalleena |
I am most likely to respond to comments here on the blog or asks on Tumblr. I am least likely to respond on deviantART, Google + or Witchvox. I run a shop on Etsy for those of you with jewelry inquiries. The facebook page that currently corresponds to my etsy shop can be found here: [x]
This blog was re-imagined on October 31st, 2012 as part of my Witch's New Year goals. I want to write, and keep writing. I just have had a history of forgetting to like my computer and the internet.
