Day 29 of 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Preparation for Editing

Now that you’re coming to the end of your project, it’s time to start thinking about the editing process. I mentioned this a little bit in yesterday’s post regarding returning with the Elixir, about going back and adding characters, objects, themes, etc., where needed.

Day 28 of 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Returning with the Elixir

The Elixir can represent the moral of the story, in some way. Sure it can also be a physical potion or dino DNA, ring, or car (you get the idea), but if it’s an object, it should represent something that ties to the theme of the story, and thus carry through the ‘moral’ or the main message of the story. In this way, it can contribute and assist those who are not the MC proper.

Day 25 of the 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Loose Ends

This spread is a small spread, but one that is to be repeated per each flaw/problem. This don’t only need to be done with your MC, but with any characters that have an evolution within the story.

Day 24 of the 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Rewards and Scars

While this spread is going to identify the reward, it’s also going to identify the baggage that comes with it.

Day 22 of 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Building the Climax

Tomorrow we’re going to look at how to construct the climax itself, but today is about that build toward the climax. This means that you need to get the stakes higher, build the tension, make sure the inner conflict is ringing pretty high, and that the external conflict is resonating with that.

Day 21 of 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Demise of the Antagonist

Unless you’re intending to write a tragedy, it’s assumed that your MC is going to succeed in the end. Thus, it means that in some way, your Antagonist must have a downfall.
