Today I bought a four-leaf clover plant. I want Good Luck when this weekend, I pitch my book to an editor and agent at a writers’ conference. Like the heroine in my story, I have big dreams. Besides a “little bit of luck” I worked hard to write the best story I could. It’s a futuristic young adult romantic suspense wrought with tenderness, conflict, and adventure. I want to look my professional best when I pitch. Yesterday I bought a cap-sleeve black sheath. Today I had my nails French-manicured, and tomorrow I’m having low lights put in my hair. I’ll wear a four leaf clover in my hair for good luck. Maybe only I will know it’s there. It turns out many people carry some sort of lucky charm (or object of religious faith or inspiration) to help their life go a little bit better. On an emotional level we get positive energy from the lucky object. It inspires us. Lucky charms such as an amulet or talisman are used by sports people, politicians, and actors. I have to say, I’m feeling confident and optimistic, and maybe that’s the best luck of all.
