For centuries runes have been used as divination tools. However, they were once used as an alphabet for writing. From this juxtaposition of the mystical and practical comes a creative way to overcome writer’s block. Stuck on a scene in your novel? Need to give your characters more dimension? Or need an inspiration for a story? Put down the pen and paper, and pick up the runes.
Storyteller Runes offers a creative writing tool you won’t find in other how-to books. Each of the Elder Futhark runes are presented with plot, character and scene ideas for specific story needs. Keywords are included for more general inspiration to draw on.
Ten rune spreads are included to tackle more serious cases of writer’s block. Readings such as “Who? What? Where?” give you a story jump start. “The Relationship Reading” is good for fleshing out romances, or any story where character interaction is important but lacking. “The Known & Unknown” reading helps explore unidentified factors working on the story.
You can add even more detail and meaning to stories using the correspondences provided for each rune. Story crafting doesn’t have to be frustrating if you have the right tools at your disposal. Pick up Storyteller Runes and get the inspiration flowing.
