That's not a bad interpretation It's the One Deck Wonder, using just one deck (or just two, one with illustrated pips and one Marseille-style) for a certain period of time. More flexible than the IDS, which I crashed and burned at a few years ago!

Oh I see.. I have not noticed that. I did IDS earlier though. And I have missed that..

Wow, I am really stalling on Step 4. It's not that I can't write a story, I just can't write a short one, and I don't want to have to tell some big long thing and then retell it in the first person for just as long! I suppose I should just DO it and not worry about how much work it is...and it looks like Step 5 is reasonably short. (Not easy, but short.) Okay, I can handle this, really. (She said encouragingly to herself.)

Well, it took a week, but I finally did Step 4. For a long time I was stuck trying to stay with the literal meaning of the illustration, I just couldn't come up with a story about a ringmaster and two clowns in a circus tent. Then I threw all that away, looked at the picture as if I'd never seen it before, and just saw a man with a magic hat. And it wrote itself all at once! (It did wind up fairly long but I enjoyed it.)

Okay, I'll let my brain breathe for a while and take a look at Step 5....

When this book first cameout there were four of us workig together in this forum and we tried to motivate one another and stick to a schedule. Problem was life got busy . I finished the regular one and most of the adept but I left my deck at home I might finish the adept now I just need to see where I left off.

Kind of interesting how the exercises that require us to interpret other cards from the deck (like step 8, part 1) are often difficult for me, but when I get to the same exercise using 'my' card it comes so much more easily! Not that this is preventing me from reading other cards, it's definitely helping in fact because I can use the steps I've learned so far, but "my" card feels like coming home.

Oh yes, this is so true! Im thinking.. just how well would I get to know my deck if I would have the time and energy to walk these 21 steps with each one of the cards.
