Writers Horoscope for October 6: Still unmotivated? Look inside you.

introspection walking toward sun

Following yesterday’s suggestions, you cleaned up your physical workspace.

It only helped a little.

Time to clean up your inner workspace.

Here’s a great start, thanks to Todd Brison’s 195 Words to Keep You Going If You Feel Down.


  • He takes aim at ‘Comfort’ and ‘Safety’.
  • He tells us to listen to our inner ‘don’t give up’ messages.

Give it a shot.

A few favorites I’ve come across recently:

  1. http://www.mykitaab.in/ I’ve enjoyed these instructive podcasts on writing/publishing. Episodes have included a number of Indian authors, but also Joanna Penn and Paul Brodie, who churns out a number of well-targeted ebooks.
  2. Though the title is a little deceptive, Consistency Will Make You Feel Like a Loser should give you a quick jolt of inspiration to hang in there.
  3. Daily sub-ten minute podcasts from https://sidehustleschool.com/ are not only interesting, but they are thought-provoking and inevitably spur a fair amount of ‘Gee, I wonder if…’ kind of thinking. This is one of Chris Guillebeau’s latest ventures. He’s currently in Amsterdam, but will soon be back at work on the 2017 World Domination Summit in Portland, OR this July.
