Ju-Ju and Fetishes for Writers

Ok. I just tweeted that my Jean Luc Picard action figure, complete with his taped on “thought bubble” commanding, “Write!” fell off my computer as I frantically wafted papers around. “It’s an omen!” was my posted exclamation. Duh. Are writers superstitious? Do we have little rituals we do, compulsively must do, in order to get ready to create?

You’ll be imagining that I sit here draped in Ju-Ju fetishes and it’s really not so. Really.

  1. Superstitious? Yes. Mildly obsessive compulsive? Yes. A tad bit crazy? Absolutley. I think that all writers must be in order to persevere in this business. My favorite ritual so far is sitting in bed after a hot shower, clean and warm and then writing. I can almost always get 1k or more this way. :)
