The Well of Wyrd
She sits alone; she is casting stones
Disposing glyphs on graven runes
No even numbers speak the Norns
Wyrd runs water; she must deal
In whisperings and Fates unsealed
Winds of fortune shape and shatter
Time, disposing of all matters
Is Serpentine, the ouroboros
Endless, rolling, still coils sinuous.
Katie-Ellen Hazeldine, 2018
A Tarot deck is a storybook containing the totality and also the uniqueness of the human experience. Tarot tells true stories about you or me or humanity in general.
Books. Books. I love reading my cards, and I love reading books, and I do a fair bit of writing of various kinds. I write this blog of course, but I write Tarot and related articles, and verse, flash fiction, short fiction and novel length fiction, with work so far published in a number of online and print publications and anthologies.Time and energy is precious for everyone. Mostly I work and write alone, but my favourite, and in fact my only writer’s on-line hangout is the very friendly, easy-going…and increasingly international writing community at Litopia
If you’re a writer in whatever fiction genre, or if you write non-fiction, why not wander over and take a look? Basic membership is free though there are also paid subscription options. Pay as much or as little as you like and can afford. (Litopia is otherwise entirely financed and maintained by its founder and resident literary agent Peter Cox.)
We are looking to support writers with free, honest feedback. We are hoping for literary gold. Sometimes we find nuggets, and one day, who knows?
You’ll sometimes find yours truly, sitting in as a panellist.
A very recent show here with Litopia’s very special guest, novelist, author, columnist – and fellow tarot reader Daisy Waugh.
