Have you always wanted to write stories – gripping crime novels, epic fantasy series, dystopian graphic novels, wild fan fiction serials, or luscious historical romances – but weren’t sure how to get started?
Are you an experienced writer who battles writer’s block or story structure problems in your fiction?
Storyslingers is a story construction kit in the form of a deck of 78 cards. This kit will help you write the perfect outline for your screenplay, novel, graphic novel, or work of fan fiction. And, when you’re ready to write that first draft, not only will your Storyslingers outline help you avoid story structure difficulties, the cards will continue to function as a creative writing aid!
Outline Your Next Great Story
During the outline writing phase, you use the Storyslingers cards to craft the perfect story outline. On the front of each card contains guides and writing prompts to help you flesh out a story idea and organize it into a four act outline.
Rather than providing a formulaic story template, Storyslingers provides writers with modular story elements to customize your story’s structure. Want to write a love story or a tragic ending? Great, we have cards for that. Hate it when fiction begins with a prologue? Leave that card out!
For beginning writers there is guidance on how to draft a typical heroic journey style narrative. For advanced students of story, you have the option of moving your story blocks around. And, because they are in card form, its easy to lay out a well-conceived story quickly on an open floor or pinned to a cork board. Grab some 3″x5″ note cards and jot down a bit of story to go with each Storyslingers card and, voila! You have the beginnings of your outline.
Imagine Your Way Out of Writer’s Block
Once you have completed your story outline, gather your Storyslingers cards and flip them over!
The reverse side of each card contains tarot images for inspiring you as you write your first draft. Just as you might perform a tarot reading on a friend, you can perform tarot readings on story characters, settings, or plot points. This results in fun, and often surprising, curve balls that are great for unlocking your creativity and overcoming writer’s block.
