Writers Horoscope for November 16: You couldn’t help yourself.

Writing projects…coming at you from all sides.

coming at your from all sides

Most of them half-completed. [if you’re lucky].

Let’s hope you’re taking yesterday’s dealing with guilt advice to heart.

But there’s still work to do.

Sort out the three or four ‘loudest’, most insistent projects.

And get back to scheduling.

Give each of them at least 15 minutes.

[You and I both know those sessions will stretch to 25 or 30 minutes.]

You will see real progress and, even more important, you can sleep soundly knowing these projects are no longer collecting psychic dust.

Life’s treating you like a captive in an outhouse.

But wait! Those ill-fated moments can launch you into some quality writing.

You shrug your shoulders, admit you have nothing to lose, reach for your pen and durable paper [no bathroom tissue, please], and have at it.

And…even if, in your heedless state, a little doubt is tucked in your back pocket, here is a vital kick in the seat of the pants.

Writers Horoscope for November 11: A difficult decision awaits.

Yes, it’s time…

One of your favorite characters has to meet his demise.

You’ve written yourself [your character, actually] into a corner.

Buck up, put on your ‘audacious author’ pants, and lead him off the pier.

So to speak.

To coin a phrase.

As it were.
