|This isn't the real lilac pen. I'm too superstitious to take a picture of it.|
You see, when I recorded my entry in my diary, I didn't write it in my lucky lilac pen.
Let me tell you a little bit about my pen.
Every time I've written things down using that pen I've been lucky.
Lucky strike.1 - A publisher asks to see more of one of my novels.
Lucky strike.2 - Two days after sending my revenge novella Hell To Pay to Sassy Books, I sign a contract. The book will be out in 2013.
Lucky strike.3 - I noted the details of an idea for an article I sent to an editor. I got the commission.
Writers and their superstitions, eh?
I know I'm not the only one who's very superstitious when it comes to my writing. I have a friend who writes in longhand. Whenever he makes a mistake he scrunches up the paper and throws it in the bin then starts again.
Extreme? Maybe. But, we all have our ways.
Now, where's that lucky pen?
