"As a writer, you already know what it's like to hold the power of creation in your hands. With a few strokes of a pen, you can forge a universe or start a galaxy spinning in space. You can mold brave new worlds and planets, complete with mountains, plains, and seas. You can even establish nations and cities, and populate them with culture and history. Like a living god, you can determine the future of an alternate reality. When you hold a tarot deck in your hands, you have an additional tool at your disposal--on that can make your job as a creator infinitely more rewarding." - From Tarot for Writers

One of the go-to authors for making the cards incredibly accessible, lively Tarot author Corrine Kenner focuses her sparkling wit and breadth of knowledge on equipping writers with a handy tool for their creative endeavors in her newest book, Tarot for Writers.

From mapping out the Hero's Journey with Tarot to producing character profiles, busting through writer's block to constructing that all-important first line, Tarot for Writers serves as both an introductory lesson in fiction writing and a first-rate primer on the cards, especially since Kenner provides detailed information on all 78 cards in the second half of this 358-page book.

With literally hundreds of practice exercises, writing prompts, and helpful lists accompanied by black-and-white card images, Tarot for Writers is the only book on the market showing how the mysterious imagery and symbolism of the cards can be applied to conflict (inciting and resolution), characterization, dialogue, description, metaphor, pacing, scenery, introducing unpredictable elements and so much more.

Most people think of tarot cards as a fortune-telling device--but they're also an excellent tool for writing and creative thinking. Writers from John Steinbeck to Stephen King have used tarot cards for inspiration, and novelist Italo Calvino went so far as to call the tarot "a machine for writing stories."

With Tarot for Writers, you'll discover how an ordinary deck of tarot cards can help you break through writer's block, generate story ideas, and develop multi-faceted characters and plots. You'll also learn how tarot cards can help you hone your dialogues and descriptions, whether you're generating new material or breathing new life into a project you've already begun.

Tarot for Writers will guide you through every stage of a writing project, from conception to execution, and later through the rewriting and editing process. You'll even learn how tarot cards can help you market, publicize, and promote your work.

I anxiously waited for this book to be released and bought it the very day it came out. That's not something I usually do. It was due in part to intrigue: I have a tarot deck at home that I am learning about and was curious about this new use for; but mostly to try something new to aid me in my quest for writing a book of my own.

I rushed home with it, got my hot cup of coffee, my blanket, a notebook, my tarot cards and my dog and dug in. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I can say that this book contained a lot more than I thought it would. What an invaluable resource for writers, and a great resource for those just wanting to learn more about the tarot cards themselves!

Corrine Kenner sets out, very simply and thoroughly, how to use one card at a time to develop a story.

Format: Paperback
Are you a writer looking for an endless source of new ideas, or a Tarot reader with a longing to write? Then I've found the book for you- "Tarot For Writers" by Corrine Kenner.

If you fall in the first category, you will get a solid grounding in Tarot from this book. Basic concepts, reading the cards, and layouts are all covered in an easily understood and engaging way. There is also a handy lookup section for the Major and Minor Arcana to flip to whenever you have a question.

Those in the second category may find some aspects covered they haven't
thought of.

Regardless, both groups will learn how to use the cards to draw characters and stories out of the well of their subconscious minds. I was shocked at how easily the words flowed in response to the image on a card even when I was a raw beginner.

As I learned more, there were more riches to be mined. Corrine's many and
varied writing practices and writing prompts trigger plot lines from the cards and my inner being in ways that amaze me.

She teaches you to use Tarot to defeat writer's block and to be your
personal writer's coach- much cheaper than therapy or a creativity coach!

In short, Corrine Kenner gives you a perpetual source of inspiration, waiting for you pull a card and pick up your pen or turn on your laptop and just start writing.

A helpful aside: go to a Tarot cards site and look at the pictures of some decks to see what appeals to you. Certain decks will click better with you than others. Don't buy a deck that does not have the Minor Arcana in pictures. And an assortment of decks will keep your writing practice fresh and full of vitality.
