Attila Blága Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot

Hello and welcome back to the Write Styles where Attila Blága Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot.  Attila, welcome to the Write Styles and thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

http://www.thewritestyles.com/How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot Attila Blága Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot

TWS: I understand that you have written poetry and you have even written some Sci-Fi too, would you care to give some background there?

Attila: Before we get started, please let me thank you for giving me this opportunity to present my work. Now, coming to your question, since I was a child I had artistical interests. I was drawing and painting, I had a journal and because my mom was a teacher and she had a typewriter, I wanted to have a typewriter myself!

Back then and in the dictatorial regime I have lived, all typewriters must have been registered to avoid typing manifestos. However, my mom managed to get me a typewriter, and I started writing short stories and poems. I started writing a novel or two but never finished any. As a teenager, singing in a garage band proved to be more attractive.

TWS: You are now coming from a somewhat controversial path… The Tarot! Could you explain what attracted you to the Tarot?

Attila: I have to confess something else first. I am Hungarian nationality, born and raised in Romania under a very strict dictatorial regime. In the school, I have only learned some Latin and ten years of Russian. I was quite reticent mainly because of political considerations, although I am the first to admit that the Russian culture is massive and impressive.

I have learned English listening to my mom’s vinyl records, singing along and translating the lyrics word by word. Later I have read Shakespeare and Hemingway in bilingual editions.

Then I started studying the Bible.  I read it in three different languages and several different translations. Another important factor was the blogging. I had several blogs, at first in Romanian, then also in English and I have written tons of articles. These experiences all contributed to my development.

Regarding the Tarot, I started studying at the beginning of the ’90s and it was constantly an important aspect of my life. I have begun with Eliphas Levi, Hajo Banzhaf, and Aleister Crowley.

The Tarot is the key to the entire esoteric system. It is a very complex instrument. You can learn a lot about yourself and a lot about the Universe.

Unfortunately, people have, generally speaking, a very unrealistic idea of what the Tarot is. On the other hand, I am still concerned that my English is not good enough and sometimes people might misunderstand me.

How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot
The Unified Esoteric Tarot Deck
TWS: I understand that you have just released your first copies of The Unified Esoteric Tarot Deck! Congratulations and we wish you the best there! How long did it take you to design those incredible cards and write the accompanying guidebook?

Attila: The design part was easy. Previously I have worked as art director and graphic designer for several companies. I have a quite consistent experience in desktop publishing (DTP), and as I mentioned, I had drawn and painted since very young age, it was a period in my life when I had lived exclusively from selling my paintings, so, the design part was easy.

There is one thing I have to confess. In my opinion, art is misleading, most of the artists who created or have been commissioned to create Tarot decks, are lacking esoteric knowledge and understanding.

This is one of the main reasons why I have created a very technical, strip down to the basic esoteric symbols Tarot deck. What really took time was the research and study.

Practically, I have worked more than twenty-five years to put all the pieces together and get to this point. The accompanying book is a short, summarised version of my entire work. I plan to publish it separately, and it will consist of three extra large volumes of work dealing with esotericism.

Tarot is built upon basic esoteric notions, principles and laws, and its foundation is Astrology and Numerology. These two esoteric sciences are also the foundation for Alchemy and Kabbalah, and subsequently creates the link between all these branches of esoteric sciences. For me, it was very important, the ‘meeting’ with P.D. Ouspensky and the discovery of the teachings of G.I Gurdjieff. Including ‘The Fourth Way’, was crucial to understanding both Tarot and human nature.

Attila Blaga Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot
The Unified Esoteric Tarot Deck
TWS: In terms of transformation, how do you think writers could benefit from the Tarot?

Attila: Tarot is an instrument of self-observation, self-remembering, and self-development. Knowing yourself will help you understand why you do some things, respectively why others act in a particular manner respectively mechanically.

Gurdjieff explained that we are living exposed to accidents and Tarot can be a useful instrument to prevent that and start doing things. Anybody who intends to do something may benefit from Tarot. You can formulate a clear goal and Tarot will help you to remember that goal and also can guide you to make the right decisions during the process.

Attila Blága Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot

TWS: I often hear of writers complaining of writer’s block or trying to pin down their novels. Do you believe it takes years of practice to master the Tarot or do you believe that any striving writer would be able to use the Tarot to benefit their writing skills?

Attila: I don’t think someone will ever master the Tarot. Each day for the last twenty-so years I discover something new, I understand some aspect that I previously oversaw. When someone thinks that knows enough, generally it means she or he does not understand a thing. I still have so much to learn.

TWS: Would you describe how the Tarot has benefitted your career?

Attila: I do not read for myself, respectively extremely rarely. Definitively I would take better decisions in some matters if I would listen to what my inner voice says, respectively if I would read for myself regularly.

It is always much easier to advise and support others, then be truly objective regarding yourself. However, I learned to be detached, and in the last couple of years in important matters, I consult the cards.

The Unified Esoteric Tarot Deck
TWS: Can we expect another deck from you or do you have other extraordinary plans?

Attila: Maybe I have some plans, but these are just plans, for now, so, I prefer not to talk about them. On the other hand, I have designed a couple of games based on Tarot, and I intend to bring those games to life.

I have a board game design and a tabletop game, both based on Tarot. They are both entertaining, but also may help someone to learn and understand the Tarot, and can be used for cast predictions.

TWS: Lastly, what mantra or one piece of advice do you essentially live by on a daily basis that you could share with our readers?

Attila: Think for yourself. Don’t take anything for granted. Many things we consider ‘facts’ are false and constitute a false reality around us. Check and re-check, think. It is essential not to learn and memorize mechanically ‘facts’, but to understand what they are and why they are, respectively how they work.

Someone may memorize that one plus one equals five, but what makes the difference is to understand what one means and why one plus one equals two in this, and for that matter, most probably in any other dimension.

TWS: Thank you for your time.

Attila: I thank you and wish you all the best!

Is a Transcription Career for You? Jeanne Fick reveals all.

Transcribing is a wonderful alternative career in the writing field, it provides a constant workflow and no two audios are ever the same. I started out on this field about five years, so I still have much to learn. Today I was fortunate enough to interview Jeanne Fick about the pros and cons of beginning a transcription career.

Starting your Transcription Career.Career in Transcribing, Jeanne Fick reveals all.

How were you first introduced to transcribing?

When I was 14, I interviewed Mr. Duckett in Darling for a history project, who fought in the Second World War. I transcribed the entire 60-minute tape using an old-school tape recorder… Play, stop, write, rewind, repeat… It took me many, many days to complete.

Many years later, while working at a law firm in Wynberg, Cape Town, as a receptionist, I was given some overflow transcription files to do when the secretaries were overloaded. I was hooked. It was so much better than being a receptionist!

What would one need in order to make a successful career as a transcriptionist? Are there any outlay costs?

Good ears, good language (written and oral) skills, good typing skills, computer literacy, thinking skills, analytical skills, excellent time management skills and impeccable client management skills.

Yes, there are startup costs. At the very least, you should have these four basic items: A good PC, good headphones, good internet and transcription software. Without these basic items, you won’t be doing any transcription work.

Your PC will be on almost permanently. It will be burning midnight oil right along with you. You need one that is reliable and can handle the hours without getting cranky or crashing, causing you lose your work and/or precious time. Personally, I use a mini PC. It is tiny, silent and never complains. Of course, you wouldn’t be using this for gaming.

Great headphones make all the difference. These need to be noise cancelling, lightweight and durable. They will be on your head and over your ears for many hours at a time. Invest in a set that will remain comfortable for as long as you wear them.

A footswitch, while you can certainly transcribe using the hotkeys, really speeds things up.  While they might be rather pricey, they pay for themselves very quickly with speed and ease of use. I consider them an indispensable investment.

You need the best internet provider you can find. Even if you have to pay more for service, again, this will pay for itself when it comes to download speeds. There’s nothing more frustrating than waiting for an urgent file to download for hours while you could already be typing.

Transcription software, while important, is rather down to personal preference. Pick the one that works best for you. There are many out there. Personally, I’m most comfortable with Express Scribe (the paid version… always use the paid versions of any software).

It’s also nice to have (especially in South Africa) a basic backup power system. I have a 1.4KW inverter and a 24v backup battery to keep things going for a while.

Yes, there are startup costs. Frankly, I don’t consider them “costs” as such, but rather infrastructure investment.

Amazon is running some specials on Express Scribe at the moment, however South Africans must please note that they do NOT deliver to SA. 🙁

What would you warn an aspiring transcriptionist against? What pitfalls do you foresee? Can you give an example from your own experience?

Prepare yourself for good, hard work and long hours of frustration before things start to really pay off. You need to find clients. Transcription companies that are hiring are a good place to start. You will more than likely have to do a few test files and be rejected a few times before you land a job.

Don’t have only one client. It’s like putting your eggs all in one basket. I worked for a well-known transcription company for a long time and they were my only client. Getting money out of them got increasingly more difficult as time went by. Needless to say, I no longer complete files for them. I had to start almost from scratch again to build up my client base.

Try to get private clients. If you have a medical background, start there and approach doctors, either in person or online. If you have a legal background, try contacting a few small law firms. The same goes for technical and financial, etc.

What has kept you in the field of transcribing all these years? What do you feel is the greatest advantage?

The freedom. I have been a freelance transcriptionist for nearly a decade now. Besides that I love my interesting and diverse job and amazing clients, I also have the time to do almost exactly as I please and enjoy my amazing lifestyle. I can go fishing, traveling, shopping and all sorts of things without having to ask my boss for time off or apply for a day’s leave. I can choose how many hours I work a day and when I work. What hours I take off during the day, I can always put in at night.

You don’t work for a salary. What you put in, you most certainly get out!

What advice would you give newcomers?

Work hard! You will get frustrated, you will struggle, your body will ache after hours of being planted firmly on your seat, but in the end, your efforts will be well rewarded.

Oh, and get exercise, for your ass will expand exponentially!!

I do believe Jeanne to be one of South Africa’s top transcriptionists and I, personally, have learned so much from her during the years. I do however wish she had given the ‘exercise’ advice earlier because I am living proof of what being sat behind a PC day in and day out can do to one’s ‘physique’ 🙂

So great advice from Jeanne Fick, a transcriptionist that really knows her stuff! So if you need any audios transcribed, feel free to contact Jeanne at LinkedIn.

Where to start your Transcription Career?

Here are two websites that are brilliant for aspiring transcriptionists. I, personally, started with them and had no issues with payments other than having to have a PayPal account. There are no startup fees needed, you can start today.

First is Casting Words, they are great for beginners. You can listen to their audios before accepting the job. They also grant you wonderful turnaround times too, so you don’t feel so pressured. (Oh, and you do get an extension if time runs out too 😉 ) They also have a wonderful Facebook Group that offers around the clock support!

castingwords -Transcription Career
Yup, this is where I started 🙂

Second is Speechpad, they are also brilliant and offer a wide variety of jobs including standard and premium capturing.

speechpad - Transcription Career
Ensure to follow the styleguides before commencing!

They both offer styleguides, so be sure to study them before attempting to accept a job!

What you may also find really useful is a Transcription Crash Course offered by Loretta Oliver. I enjoy her little book as she has put maximum info into a very dynamic quick paced and insightful book. In it you’ll find among more:

  • Things you need
  • Things that make life easier
  • Keyboard Shortcuts
  • Playback Speeds
  • Verbatim vs Cleaned Up Transcribing
  • General Transcript Formatting
  • Your First Transcript
  • Planning Turnaround Times
  • Determining Rates
  • Finding Jobs and Securing Clients
  • Your Website…. and much more!!!

Do feel free to contact me with any further questions that you may still have, I would love to assist you with your Transcription Career.

Jeanne and I have recently partnered,  how honored am I! Do check out our Transcription Services.

Blessed Be,

Sancheo
