This week I got StoryWorld and the Fairy Magic edition of Storyworld. These are decks of cards that greatly resemble Tarot cards but they make no claim of predicting the future or interpreting the present. Instead they are meant to inspire storytellers.
There are many ways to use them , you can shuffle them pick out a few that will be elements in a story you are writing, you can hand everyone in a group a card and have them incorporate the object, idea or person on the card (grandma, cat, knight, fairy, ect) into the story. I think they’re really cool and I look forward to trying them out.
I also purchased Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog the Book. I learned a lot about how grassroots the project was. Of course not just anyone has access to Fox’s wardrobe stuff or the equipment Joss had, but I still think it’s pretty amazing that it all came together so well.This book isn’t for everyone, just hard-core fangirls/fanboys.
