One of the least celebrated parts of writing is the art of revision. Working on my forthcoming sexy tarot story for Midnight Showcase last night, I was struck by the usefulness of having one more go at the piece. There’s always a little more polishing to be done. The more the story shines, the more I do, too.
The story focuses on a tarot card reader who takes more than a slight interest in a client at a psychic fair. It’s loosely based on some friends and a local psychic fair — and the diner everyone goes to afterward. The signal card is the Two of Cups. I found this charming image by artist Kathleen Lolley, who has a lovely print of it available. It’s amazing all the people who have been inspired by the tarot over the years. What’s your favourite deck?
