Day 18 of 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Antagonist’s 2nd Display of Power

But now comes the second display of power, and this happens after the turn. And instead of intimidating your MC and scaring them off, this display of power spurs them on. After this, your MC knows more than ever that they must overcome this antagonist come Hell or High Water (whatever that phrase is), or die trying.

Day 17 of 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Data Dump

It’s up to you to decide when you give the reader this information, but I would advise against introducing Bob who’s family life was rocky, but it spurred him to the cold career of a prison guard, which kept him from seeking any permanent romance in his life—as soon as Bob walks into the room for the first time. These details can be drawn out and dotted throughout the story.

Day 15 of 30-Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Antagonist’s 1st Display of Power

In yesterday’s spread, you drew a card which represented the first display of power of your Antagonist. This is what it is that makes your MC think that they don’t want to mess with the Antagonist, or that perhaps the job is too big. This occurs before the Turn in their position, but after they’ve crossed the threshold.

Day 2 of the 30 Day Tarot Writing Challenge:World-Building

In world-building for a novel, you don’t want to ask your reader to believe too many big things. Otherwise it gets ridiculous. Now, that isn’t to say that you can’t ask your reader to believe one big thing and then a culture and set of customs are logically built around that one big thing.

Day 1 of 30 Day Tarot Writing Challenge: Opening Scenes

And we’re off! It’s the first day of Camp NaNoWriMo and we are on the go! But where on earth do we start? If you haven’t already, have a look at the prep work spread from yesterday and see if that helps get the creative…

Day 0 of 30 Day Tarot Writing Challenge

I just don’t think it’s fair to start Camp NaNoWriMo without some direction of where you’re going. So I thought that today we would somewhat set the stage for our Fool. This is just giving the story a little bit of a guideline so you have a vague idea as to where this is going.

Tarot Writing Prompt: I Get Knocked Down

Knights are also the court-member of fire, and thus, equally have the passion and drive. The Knight of Rods, or Wands, already eager and energetic, is more driven by energy.
