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.

Need a little help with this challenging next step?

 

 

Writers Horoscope for November 10: You’re overthinking things.
