Lucky Writing Cherub

My Lucky Writing Cherub  You may recognise the cheeky chappie, who’s on the left (see my banner). It’s my lucky cherub. It’s actually the writing set my dad gave me to bring me luck with my story writing.

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!)
