NaNoWriMo ~ 10,000+ Words!

No big deal or anything but BIG DEAL. I've written over 10,000 words, more than I have ever before. I could be writing right now, or I could be blogging to you guys. I kind of want to blog instead, but I really should get back.

With that being said, happy writing and good luck~ Everyone has a story in them, keep going!

Here's an amazing calendar that shows you whereabouts you should be in your story in order to finish on time ^_^

NaNoWriMo Day #2

823 words written out of the 3,000+ I'm supposed to have by now. Why, you ask, am I blogging instead of writing? Because, my dear reader, I am procrastinating. I considered doing another Tarot spread but I'm too tired to think that hard. So, I leave you with my weekly read and a mental kick in the rear (but not too hard, 'cause ow) to get me going.

NaNoWriMo Day #1--Tarot Spread Vice

It's the first day of NaNoWriMo, no big deal or anything but this will be the year that I win.

I think we all know at one point or another we're going to suffer from writer's block. Hopefully this "Tarot for Writers" series (interpreted and inspired by my Tarot practicem) will help you out. Today the spread is "My Greatest Vice" from the Complete Book of Tarot Spreads. The layout is as such:

Middle: 7 of Swords, representing your characters weakness

The character goes into the plot without a plan (much like this writer has no plot) and . Whether that manifests itself into a king leading a battle without a strategy or a MC who just doesn't care about what happens in their lives. 

Left: The Hanged Man, representing what drags them down

The characters attachment to this certain something is holding them back from spiritual, emotional, or mental illumination. It can ultimately lead to their downfall. 

Right: The Hermit, this gives the character a cause

Much like the Christian Jesus, who went into the desert in isolation (right?) to become more aware of himself, this character will find a sense of purpose in solitude. Perhaps that manifests itself in a break from a long-term relationship, or it could be a physical, as opposed to a mental, break from another character or environment.











If you want to friend me on NaNo my screen name is Angie_On_Books. Looking forward to meeting you! I'd be happy to do a spread for your story.
