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 (such as the dreaded second act slump) in your fiction?

Storyslingers is a story construction kit in the form of a deck of 78 cards. It makes  writing novels, screenplays, and other works of long fiction quicker, easier, and more fun.

On the front of each card are 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 a construction kit of modular story elements that allows you to customize your story’s structure to meet your needs.

Once you have completed your story outline, its time to 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.

Storyslingers is slated for a 2019 release. Stay in touch! Follow us on Kickstarter! On Facebook!  On Twitter!  On Instagram! On Nanowrimo.org!
