I don’t actually use it as a writing set, it’s more of a good luck charm but whenever I pass the cherub, I stroke his head. Silly? Yes, probably. But he’s been quite kind so far and I wouldn’t want to upset him.
A British University showed that more than 30% of those who carried good luck charms felt their luck had genuinely improved, so I’m obviously not alone.
So, if you’re a writer, do you have a lucky charm? Or a lucky ritual?
Well, if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to submit a story to a publisher and there’s a cherub’s head that needs stroking.
P.S. Only three more days until ‘Daffodil and the Thin Place’ is released, a direct result of stroking a cherub’s head. You can see it here (the book, not the cherub!)
