SAGITTARIUS: November 5-11

Author P.G. Wodehouse wrote more than 90 books, several plays, musical comedies and film scripts. When he died at age 93, he was working on another novel. He didn’t suffer from writer’s block, yet his process was far from effortless. He rarely churned out perfection on his first attempt. “I have never written a novel,” he testified, “without doing 40,000 words or more and finding they were all wrong and going back and starting again.” The way I see your immediate future? You’ll be creating your version of those 40,000 wrong words. That’s OK. You can’t get to the really good stuff without a practice run.
