Shape your story and break through writers’ block.

Everyone has a story to tell, but getting it to the page isn’t easy. Whatever genre you write, CHSL Cards help you shape your story or bulldoze past those tough blocks. CHSL Cards are designed to save time and vault you back into the writing process.

1 Free Association Word

Sometimes a single word can spark your imagination. The range of words we’ve chosen can help with plot, character development, or specific hurdles you face every day.

2 Thought Provoking Applications

When a word isn’t enough, application can take it a step further. We’ve looked at different ways the Free Association Word can make a difference in your story. We aim for both broad and specific connections.

3 Direct Writing Prompts

It doesn’t come much more classic than a writing prompt. We’ve crafted ours to further draw meaning from the Free Association Word.

4 Storytelling Flavor Text

The most abstract of them all, this small bit of text gives your mind the freedom to wander and fill in the blanks of the story.

Genres, Genres, and More Genres

Universal themes only get you so far, which is why we put a lot of emphasis on genre-specific collections of cards. The first deck, Universal I, is always free. But if you should need more specific inspiration, we have cards for writers of:

  • Fantasy
  • Thriller
  • Comedy

We’ll be releasing more free cards from time to time. If there’s a deck you want to see, send us a suggestion!
