I asked which aspect of my story is most likely to benefit from bending, if not breaking, a rule or two. The card I drew is the Six of Wands. It indicates the part of the book where the hero/heroine is about to succeed in overcoming their difficulties and reaching their goals. Perhaps the method of success is different than usual; or maybe the choice of partner or companion. In any case, the road to success should be paved with broken rules!
