Let’s use that writing a novel idea example that was talked about in the Page of Wands description. You now know what genre the novel will be written in and what your book will be about. You have started taking notes on the plot. This excites you as you may be so busy focusing on the new novel that you started working on it and realized you have worked on it for too long that it is now 5 am! You needed your sleep. That is where the impulse comes in.

The Knight of Wands reversed is indicative of the fact that you are very much passionate as it appears in the card upright. But there is no direction or organization. Your approach is scattered. You are also dealing with delays and frustration over it.
