I invited around 70 writers/bloggers to write a piece about how typical they are of their sign, and how its traits affect their writing life ~ if at all...
I featured fifty-one writers and bloggers last year ~ if you would like to have a look at the list (with links), they're all HERE
"I’m so often told I’m a typical Libran. Born smack in the middle – not a cusp in sight. My best friend’s a Libran too. We joke about our scales bobbing up and down to suit the mood, and how they continually play those contrasting and very familiar traits off against each other.
"This ‘seeing all sides of a dilemma or debate’ does help me tremendously, though, with being able to really delve beneath the layers of each of my fictional characters to obtain their private/public viewpoints and opinions.
"The main Libran characteristic I can relate to, though, is indecision. Guilty as charged, m’lud! I can weigh up the simplest of issues for days, especially when it affects other people, yet once my mind is made up, that’s it. It’s certainly hindered my writing progress at times, dithering over one paragraph for hours – tweaking and re-tweaking, instead of moving on and editing afterwards. Next minute, the old scales will dip and the words will be flowing nonstop. I suppose this can be both a strength and a weakness (don’t ask me to pick one over the other though – we’ll be here for days!)."
It's funny how all the Librans who've appeared on here prove that this indecision thing isn't a myth! If you would like to know more about Jan, or say a nice friendly hello, you can follow her on Twitter HERE.
