It's time for you to move beyond any logical concerns you have about your creative abilities and just let your natural talent take over. This may require a higher level of trust than you've previously attained, but with five planets in your 5th House of Self-Expression, the only thing that can hold you back is your fear of success. You have the vision and the ingenuity, so get out of your own way and let it flow.
That's my horoscope for today, Monday, March 1, 2010.
Sometimes my writing life needs something to kick it in gear. I think this will do it today.
I've been plugging away at the editing process on my WIP, and thinking a bit about the next manuscript. But I've let the querying process on a previous one slide to the bottom of the hill.
Today I have three things on my writing plate:
- Edit the next scene.
- Tackle the synopsis again.
- Send at least three new queries.
So for sure if you're a Scorpio, go back and reread our message for today.
If you're not, go back and read it again anyway. Forget it's a horoscope.
Those words are plain good advice for all writers any day of the week. We need to trust in whatever talent we have. Our talent, not someone else's. Write the stories we want to write. Not the stories our favorite authors have written. Not the stories that follow a trend we don't enjoy reading.
Write the story you want to read.
When we do that, we write from our hearts.
Fear of success? A lot of people have this, not just writers. How can you tell? I found this article that has an interesting quiz. And a few more that covered some more obvious signs.
Think positive. Trust your instincts. Write with gusto.
Be a winner.
