Last Wednesday’s NaNoWriMo Plot Party was a lot of fun. we had 14 intrepid authors show up. All eager to meet each other and reveal ideas for their plots. I read for three people and examined the intricacies of character relationships, uncovered possible plots, and showed the power of tarot as a brainstorming tool to enthusiastic minds. We also played a “create a story” dice game and collaged ideas for stories.
I left this party feeling more and more ready for NaNoWriMo 2010. Are you planning on doing NaNo and need help crafting plots or characters? Try turning to the tarot for inspiration.
