Events this February

Happy post-Imbolc and winter season. The winter blues turned into the winter flus and I’m just now getting over being sick. While I’m recovering, I wanted to tell you all about the two exciting events I’m participating in this month.

Do you wonder what’s in the cards for you this year? Join me at Visible Changes Salon in Vancouver for an afternoon of beauty consultations and tarot. I will be there from 12 to 3 offering free tarot advice to smoothly guide you through 2013. Many of the professional stylists will also be on hand to answer all of your beauty and nail questions as you enjoy free refreshments and a chance to win a $50 gift basket. Visible Changes is located in the Cascade Village 615 SE Chkalov Dr. Suite 2 Vancouver, WA 98683

PantheaCon 2013 accepted my proposal for Becoming a Tarot Professional. I’ll be teaching this unique workshop circle on Monday, Feb 18th at 1:30 pm in the San Martin room.

Are you ready to become a tarot professional but are afraid? Going Pro presents a safe forum where you can learn how to take the fool’s plunge and start your own tarot business. Jaymi Elford has been laying the foundation for her own business for two years now. While she claims she’s no expert, she’s ready to share her knowledge about what to do, where to go, and how to get those spiffy marketing toys. I hope to see many of you at my workshop!

Second NaNo Plot Party Wrap-up

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.

Second NaNoWriMo Plot Party Tonight

The second plot party kicks off tonight. Come join us as we generate plot ideas for NaNoWriMo 2010. I’ll have my deck with me to help you craft plot ideas, plot points, or just discuss character concepts. Hope to see you there!

Three Creeks Library, Vancouver, WA
NaNoWriMo Plot Party

NaNoWriMo is a wonderful, seat of your pants writing experience. The goal is to write a complete first draft of a novel in 30 days (or less). Started in 1998 by Chris Baty, NaNoWriMo is an international project that I have been taking apart of for the past 10 years now. Come join us at Three Creeks Library on this evening to learn more about NaNoWriMo, play games with your fellow authors, and allow me to read the cards for your characters or create new ones for November.
