Since this is language-related and writing-related, I thought I’d share my recent post from my other blog.
On Mondays, I like to do what I unofficially call ‘Monday Musings.’ I write something that’s on my mind about Tarot, which is what my other blog is about. Today’s musing was about how learning Tarot is like learning a new language.
Since I strongly believe that writers really need to pick up a set of divination cards or tools for their writing because it’s shockingly helpful (read Tarot-Inspired Life by Jayme Elford if you don’t believe me. She talks about using Tarot cards and Pendulums for writing), I thought I might stress that point here with this post.
In spreads, the positions of the cards create the more complicated sentences. They’re what tell you that there are adjectives, adverbs, semi-colons, etc. Furthermore, these positions tell you how the sentence fits together using all of these fancy grammatical terms.
