“An Amazing Resource”

Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner is an amazing resource for writers and storytellers across the world, who are looking for another source of inspiration for their work. Let’s have a look at what this book is all about.
The way I see it, most Tarot card readers tell stories when they do their readings. They look at the spread positions, they look at the card images, they listen to their intuition, and they connect the dots to make a coherent story – the reading for their client. I firmly believe that in order to be a good Tarot card reader, one should have some ability for storytelling.
Naturally, the same Tarot cards can also inspire writers in their process of imagination weaving! The book Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner tells writers exactly how they can leverage the imagery and meanings of the Tarot cards to help them in their creative process.
As a Tarotist and as a Writer, I have found the techniques mentioned in this book quite useful. I have personally used many of these techniques in the process of writing out the outline of the novel that I am working on at this time. And I have found them to be very useful and insightful. Of course, I used several different decks to get into it, and trust me, the more imagery, the more intense and better the process turned out to be.
If you are a writer and are looking for inspiration for your next project, I can promise you one thing: you certainly get that! I can understand the trepidation for a writer who isn’t into Tarot, but believe me, that will not be a hurdle in this process. You don’t have to get into the depths of the Tarot that much – just have to use your imagination and look at the images and let loose with your creative juices!
