The Genre – NaNoWriMo & Tarot

I’m sure you are going, “What the heck is NaNoWriMo?” Well, it’s National Novel Writing Month.  The goal is write 50,000 words of a novel in November. If you have ever even considered writing a novel, this is for you! So how does this relate to Tarot? Well, a fellow Tarot blogger, Tea for Tarot, is putting on a two week challenge leading up to November using Tarot to help us outline our books! I can’t tell you how excited I am for this!

Using Tarot to Write a Novel

This is something that has been in the back of my mind for while now. I’ve put it on the back burner while I work on the Music and Tarot project, but I feel I just have to jump in on this NaNoWriMo & Tarot challenge! Essentially Tarot contains all the building blocks of a good story. The Major Arcana contains the major life events, the Minor Arcana the everyday goings on, and the Court Cards are the people! What a perfect tool for writer’s block, too!

How Does the Challenge Work?

Tea for Tarot will post a daily prompt to follow with your Tarot Cards. Today we chose Genre, Sub-Genre, and Audience. For a special bonus, we used Tarot to choose the Title!

If you are interested in joining the challenge, read Tea for Tarot’s post here: #NaNoWriMoTarot
