Timely Reminder(s)

ImageOver at the Muffin today, I opined about a timely reminder, courtesy of my stars. 

The LIbran stars, that is. Every once in a while, I’ll read my horoscope and think, “Wow. That’s pretty sage advice.” And then I wonder who actually writes the horoscopes and if I could get that job.

Anyway, now that I’ve piqued your interest, you know you’re sitting there, wanting to find out the sage advice. So go and read the Muffin and feel better about yourself and your writing. But then come back here if you haven’t commented on the Sneaky Art giveaway. 

Well, technically you’ll have to comment here if you want to be entered into the drawing. Remember that there are two giveaways, so you have a swell chance of winning either the book or a fun rainy day pack. You have till Fun Friday to enter!

And now I shall leave you with yesterday’s Libra horoscope (which is also pretty darn good advice, especially for the writer type):

“It’s one of those rare times when it’s actually positive to dwell on the past. You’ll learn something. There’s a bit you missed, and when you look back, it will click into place.”

(Seriously. Who writes those things? It’s like a sparkly gem of Zen writer wisdom.)

The Number One Writing Habit You Need

ImageI checked my Libra horoscope this morning and read, “There will be an opportunity to incorporate a good habit into your daily life, and there are rich rewards for doing so.”

Now, I’m not saying I believe in horoscopes, but I definitely had a Twilight Zone moment when I saw that little sentence today. Because over at The Muffin, in “I’m Just Saying: Finish Your Writing,” I talked about the habit that’s absolutely necessary if you want to be a successful writer.

To be honest, it’s a basic habit, ingrained into my personality, thanks to my mom and the many sayings she pounded into my child psyche. Seriously, she had a saying for everything. Like “I don’t care what your horoscope says, get up from there and do something constructive.”

So, um, yeah. I’m fixing to go reap some rich rewards from incorporating that writing habit into today’s schedule. (And I’d love to hear what you finished writing today!)
