First NaNo Plot Party Wrap-up

We had a great time at the library last night. About 15 people showed up and we had a great time playing games related to plot creation. After an hour’s worth of group games and sharing, we broke up into individual activities. This is where I got to read tarot for the people who were curious about what I could say to them.

All in all, I read for about 4 people and helped them uncover some plot twists, characters and other literary items for their stories this year. Looking forward to seeing what the second plot party reveals!

NaNoWriMo Plot Party Readings Tonight

I’ll be reading for my Wrimo peeps at the first plot party. If you’re having issues plotting your story for NaNoWriMo this year or want to create a few extra characters, come see me and we’ll use tarot to brainstorm new ideas. 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.

Upcoming Tarot Show: Portland Tarot Art Show

My friend Alanna clued me into this on Facebook. Apparently, there’s a group of artists here in Portland, Oregon who got together in August, drew a bunch of cards and will be re-imagining them for a showing in November. I think I may have to go to this. Anyone else want to join me?

The detailed information below is from their Facebook page:

The Tarot deck dates back to the 15th century and has been used since then as a map of mental and spiritual pathways. The meanings of the cards in the Tarot deck can vary from person to person, but the basic symbolism and elements remain the same.

Over 100 artists are creating their artistic representation of their selected card based on their own interpretation of its meaning and symbolism.
Join with us as we celebrate the rich and vast array of local talent and view unique and perhaps quirky, absurd or campy interpretations of the Tarot deck art. Artwork will be on display throughout the months of November and December.
Opening Reception Party including tarot readers, hoop-dancers, music, etc.

Date: Friday, November 5, 2010
Time: 7pm-9pm
Location: Splendorporium
3421 SE 21st Avenue
Portland, OR 97202

Portland Tarot Art Show is brought to you by Jenn Feeney, Erika Lee Sears, Joanne Licardo and Anna Magruder in partnership with Splendorporium. We look forward to this being a fun and inspiring art event!
