Hi, everyone! As we roll toward March, we come a little bit closer to spring: a time for new beginnings, growth, and light. It seems like the perfect time for me to unveil a new project I’ve been letting incubate for a couple of months now… my first non-fiction writing!
Those of you who’ve been following me on this writing journey of mine know that I’ve always felt that magic and stories were tied very closely together. My next book, In The Cards, had the first seeds of its plot buried in a tarot spread I did with my very first deck, and ever since then, I’ve seen tarot as a great source of creative inspiration. The more I study, the more I realize that there’s a fantastic tool for writers to be had, here!
My new blog feature, The Authors' Oracle, will explore tarot from the perspective of a fiction writer. Each entry will provide an overview of a card, along with its implications for character, plot, and the writing process. Eventually, all 78 entries will be gathered into a book, which will include a chapter of custom-made tarot spreads for various aspects of the novel-writing process.
To kick off The Authors' Oracle, I’ve created a tarot-themed questionnaire for my fellow authors. Please leave a link in a comment here once you’ve answered the questionnaire, so that everyone can see and I can help spread the word about your blog!
Interested? Read on to find your questions, and happy blogging! I’ll see you all next Thursday, when we begin our tarot journey with Card 0: The Fool!
Have a beautiful week!
