Besides, until last night I had not a clue what I would write. I did a writing prompt tarot spread, and I've been mulling it over for the last couple of days, and last night, after I crawled into bed, of course, the cards came together in a rough plot. I had to get up and write down a few notes. It was after midnight and my fourteen year old was still up and already working on her novel.She'd been waiting for midnight so she could officially begin. She's already 9% finished.
Anyway, here's my spread. Beginning/Middle/End - Plot twist/Theme
|Plot Spread - The Gilded Tarot|
What kind of story do you come up with using these cards?
Here's my take. The story starts with action. I see a girl being chased by several other girls through the woods behind their home or the woods next to their school for troubled girls. In the middle of the story the main character will discover her power, but she'll also struggle with ego. Of course, the Four of Wands indicates a happy ending. I think my main character will either be reunited with her true family or find a new family that loves and supports her.
Plot twist? My main character is going to discover a portal to another world. Her true world. She is an alien among us from a higher plane. Judgement will be the theme. Judgement of mankind? The main character will certainly face a moment of truth or two or three. Judgement is an excellent theme.
Now, if only the words would come.
