Writers Horoscope for October 31: You’re in a talkative mood today.

And why not?

Writers Horoscope for October 30: Today you maintain momentum.

Yesterday’s trademark was relentlessness.
That was yesterday.
Day 2 of a turnaround is often pivotal.
How to keep going?

—Generate and keep nearby (digitally or on your person) a list of ‘live’ topics that beg you to engage.

Bravo. You actually followed your gut. [No, not to the fridge–well, not immediately.]

Instead, you raided your bookshelf.

There is something to be said about not writing…

Yeah… mystery sounds good.

Let’s start with this one: Why, when you get some momentum in one endeavor, do you delve into something entirely new?

There certainly is the freshness factor–the exhilaration of trying something new.

But there may be the ‘Finishing the last project means I’m that much closer to rejection’ factor.

Yikes.
