Rapid-Fire Ideas

Say you drew these three cards at random: SCIENTIST, DRAGON, THEME PARK. It’s too late now, but you might have come up with the concept for Jurassic Park, Michael Crichon’s blockbuster novel.

Of course, a gifted storyteller can come up with several different stories based on these three cards:

Young Adult Fantasy: While visiting a popular theme park, three nerdy friends discover a portal to a magical world, and a crazy old wizard tells them they are heroes prophesied to save the land from an evil dragon.

Thriller: A young art historian becomes convinced a series of brutal murders are connected to paintings by an obscure genius, but the police won’t listen to her.

Western: A medical doctor and his wife settle in what seems to be an idyllic frontier town, only to discover the town is terrorized by a ruthless, murderous land owner called Drake.

Card Layout

The carefully designed layout, style, and colors of Narata Storytelling Cards make them easily readable, with maximum associative power and creative impact. They’re fun to work with, and let you brainstorm and create more freely and therefore also more effectively. Each card “reacts” with the scene, concept, character, or story you’re working on.

At the top of each card, you see the title in white capital letters. The card colors tell you which category the card belongs to. The image  illustrates the concept and title as literally as possible. Together, the title and image create strong, often surprising, concepts or images in your mind. At the bottom, the associations field further expands the associative power of the card. 

Narata cards are standard baseball collectible size, 2½ inches by 3½ inches (6.4 cm by 8.9 cm).

Card Categories

The deck is divided into ten categories useful for developing story ideas and plots, scenes, themes and characters. In order to make working with the cards more efficient (and fun), each category has its own color.

 After some time of regular use, associating the colors with categories become second nature. You can use the card categories methodically, for example by drawing pairs of Character cards in conjunction with, say, one Location card, one Object card, and one Goal card, or you can just deal cards totally randomly and see what surprising and brilliant story ideas manifest on your desktop.
