30 Days of PreWriting, Day 20   Leave a comment

Today’s Link: http://www.facade.com/tarot/

I love this site. I have used it so many times, I memorized the address. Granted, I like characters that are slightly off. So a character whipping out some tarot cards during a slow moment is pretty common for me. And what I’ve found is that the readings on this site are uncannily accurate. In situations where I already had a plot figured out, the cards seem to represent it really well.

It could be used when you don’t have a plot already, too. You pick a Significator that sounds like your character, then you pick a layout and see what you come up with. And you can interpret tarot cards in different ways, so depending on what you get, you could end up with a romance story, a horror, or a fantasy. Whatever your thing is. It’s a lot of fun to play around with. And I really love the Two Paths spread. It shows two different outcomes from one event. So it makes it easy to figure out what the results will be of the main character screwing up the big climactic moment. And that’s always good information.
