When writing about one of the main characters (Connie Stone) in Bewitched by Atlantis: The Butterfly Mask – an amazing idea flowed in. I had trouble containing my excitement as I wrote about it. Here it is!
Use these divination tools to assist you in planning your novel.
Use Oracle, Tarot or regular playing cards to create characters and scenes
Create card layouts (an example layout for each card placement – see diagram below)
Create character sheets to fill in
Shuffle the cards and choose according to your template(s)
Write down or record via audio/video what you have discovered
Repeat as many times as you like
Note: As you do this, more questions will arise that you will want answers too. For example, I may have chosen a card that shows me that my character has addiction issues. I then want to know the cause of the issue. The next card chosen reveals the core issue as abandonment.
This short-read eBook provides you with the tools to create unique fiction books quickly.

Day 7 has been a real treat for me. Right up my alley – so to speak.
Normally on a Saturday morning, I will take some time for myself and venture out to a coffee shop to have what is called a CEO DATE. This nickname is courtesy of Rachael Cook of firedupandfocused.com She runs a challenge that increases productivity for entrepreneurs. The challenge is 21 days and it is one you don’t want to end! [Update Jan 29, 2018 – Rachael has a new challenge on her site now called Live More Challenge for 10 days]
Okay so back to today. I followed the challenge of taking myself out to a coffee shop and reading for 30 minutes. (or you could do more) I am reading Gail Thackray’s Spiritual Journey’s. Awesome! It is difficult to put down and I managed to squeeze in another half an hour this afternoon after our (partial) family picnic at Kildonan Park in Winnipeg. It was only 3 out of 4 of us today for the family picnic. The oldest child is now an adult and working and cannot come on all the family outings anymore. Waaaaa….
From the book description – “Experience miraculous healer, John of God, as seen through the eyes of medium Gail Thackray who sees, feels, and hears things that most “normal” people do not. Follow Gail on her personal journey to the spiritual healing center of John of God in Brazil. Experience miraculous healings, supernatural activity, and astonishing psychic events.” (Note: I can relate to Gail as I to see, feel and hear things too)
Continuing on my journey of overhauling myself in all areas of my life…
Funny thing about words… I call this the Overhauling Seann Series as I grew up hearing my mother say she was going to go “Overhaul Darlene”. My son James started “flapping his gums” to his father when he returned home about how he was making a “racket”. Glen, my husband, thought it was odd that he was using the word racket. I didn’t even realize I had been telling James that he was “making a racket”. It was an automatic response about unnecessary noise. (a drum against a dessert tin) Totally unnecessary! lol 🙂
This is an interesting day – June 6, 2016. It started out with my 20 minute venture over to my Chiropractor. Yes, I am still plotting my “Overhaul” and have recently asked for outside help. On the way to the doctor’s, I listened toZach Spuckler’s Podcast as he was interviewing Jadah Sellner. She is the co-founder of simplegreensmoothies.com with Jen Hansard.
Excellent interview and so the roller coaster began. I went to check out Jadah Sellner’s website which led me to the Instagram page. From there I went to the website sarahjenks.com/challenge and low and behold there is a Live More Challenge that started today of all days. Guess what I did? Yes, I signed up. I love challenges.
What was interesting about this day is that on my way home from the doctor’s office, I stopped in for some groceries and decided that I deserved some flowers today. (and the rest of my family too) It was after that I went on my internet ride to the various sites mentioned above that I signed up for the #LiveMoreChallenge.
The very first challenge is to go buy yourself some flowers. Awesome! I was in the game 🙂
Now this is odd – Simple Green Smoothies on Instagram has a link to sarahjenks.com in their profile. I actually thought I was going to be going to thesimplegreensmoothies.com website but perhaps they will reinstate their own link before July 1st. I say this because I manually went looking for it and found out the next 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge starts July first.
This is a hot topic if you ask me. “Whose life are you living?” We seem to be influenced by others or society. Short discussion here on what I think about it.
In the podcast, I mention that I learned that we cut the invisible umbilical cord with our parents (mainly our mothers) when we are about 28 years old on average) That is when people start feeling more like adults and not needing permission from others when making decisions. I thought I learned this in University but Dr. Christiane Northrup’s name is popping into my mind right now as relevant here too.
It was neat talking about this topic as it also made me think of what I actually learned at University. One thing for sure was how to understand the questions you were being asked. Really taking the time to look at a question and make sure what was being asked was crystal clear and not what I thought the question was at quick glance.
Book Highlight – Order this book and then get involved in the series. You have a chance to receive an Ipad Mini if your chapter/character submission is accepted.
