It's time once again for the Express Yourself Weekly Meme with Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.
Do you have a lucky charm or a lucky ritual?
I'm not a superstitious person, so I don't think holding on to specific trinkets will bring me luck. However, I do know I achieve more when I follow a certain routine that helps set me up for success. At night after my kids are settled down in bed and I've finished the housework, I sit down with a cup of coffee. I'll usually listen to Star Talk Radio or music while I get in whatever writing I can for the evening. It's my nightly ritual, and it serves me well.
Also, I used to have a lucky pencil. I called it that because it was my favorite shade of blue, and it felt super comfortable in my hand. The words seemed to flow when I used that pencil, if only because it had such an awesome grip. Unfortunately, it disappeared into the recesses if my house. Perhaps one day I will see it again, but until then, I'll have to make do with the pencils I have on hand.
