Now someone has actually taken this concept and made a game out of writing a book.
Sue Viders, author of more than 20 nonfiction books, has created the “Deal a Story,” a card game with a deck of 101 cards.
According to an article in Lone Tree Voice,
"Deal a Story" … combines characters with a variety of plots and genres that can produce more than 1 million story ideas.
The deck includes 16 genres, 16 villains, 16 plots, 16 character flaws, 16 heroes, 16 heroines, and 5 wildcards.
What a deal.
Deal me out.
