Writer’s Block?… Consult the Cards…

Untitled design (1)I use Oracle/Tarot Cards to generate ideas.

This may seem a little kooky to some out there but it’s a really great exercise.

For example, I use the New Age Hipster Cards to write a small piece of writing a day, just to keep my creative juices flowing. I just pick a card at random,ย  and just free write.

I also use them, if I have a little bit of Writer’s Block. I come away from the story that I am writing, and I pick a card and write something about it. This gives me a chance to have a break from being stuck, and a chance to recharge.

Personally, I have only ever used Oracle & Tarot Cards as a thought-provoking exercise, both in writing and in life.ย  Like most forms fortune telling, the ‘messages’ are very broad. For example, the infamous death card means destruction or corruption, or simply a change is coming. Neither negative or positive.

Using creative tools is something I am interested in developing in my writing. I’ll be writing some tips and updates as I go along.
