Creating Characters with Tarot

by Barbara Moore

We don’t always use the cards for readings. Sometimes we want to use them in creative ways or to spark our own creativity in other projects. Whether you are writing a story or are looking for a fun way to work with your cards, story telling and tarot have always gone hand in hand. Writers use the cards in all aspects for story creation, from character generation to plot structure to scene development. Corrine Kenner’s Tarot for Writers has lots of great applications. Here is one that would be fun to do on a snow day or perhaps at a party or meet up.


Creating Characters from Tarot for Writers

Try using the cards to answer any of the following questions. You can pull as many cards as you like to determine the answers.

Is your character a man or a woman?

How old is your character?

What does your character look like?

What does your character do for a living?

How does your character spend his or her free time?

Does your character have a spouse, children, or a pet?

What are your character’s hopes and dreams?

What does your character fear most?
