Tarot cards in the book by Kate Mosse

Author Kate Mosse talks about how she was inspired by Tarot cards in the writing of her novel Sepulchre. She delves into the history of the Tarot, and how the cards were developed and first used in a game before they took on their role as divinatory tools. Inspirational in themselves, these magical cards can also be used to inspire creativity. If you are an aspiring writer who hits the much feared block, take a Tarot deck and shuffle the cards, focussing on the characters and plot so far and asking for inspiration on what might happen next. When you are ready, start to turn the cards over in sequence and allow them to suggest plotlines to you.
