Writers Horoscope for October 16: Today, endure the fickleness of your livelihood.

Livelihood? How about ‘annoying hobby’?

Either way, it was 3:00 AM** and you tossed and turned and tossed again.

Your spouse stumbled out to the peace and quiet of the living room couch.
The border collie followed soon after.

And you were left to brood.

Shouldn’t the plural of ‘low-life’ be ‘low-lives’?

And Snow White’s annoying posse–shouldn’t they be the Seven Dwarves?

Let the brooding continue…and here you had just come to terms with your own flawfulness.

**Why is it always 3:00 AM?

Writers Horoscope for October 10: Others seek you out.

Of course others seek you out!

After all, you put words together in clear, concise fashion.

You’re brimming with creative and unique avenues of expression.

Wellllll, there’s a problem.

You’re being sought out today for another of your attractive traits: perceived free time.

“Oh, it’s just a little yard work,” they say.

It’s never just ‘a little’.

You could go with yesterday’s suggestion: turn and run.

Or you could throw a fit…

Or you could show a creepingly inordinate amount of enthusiasm for the work.

That oughta cut back on the calls for help.
