Don’t Have a Special “Writing Luck” Charm? Here’s How to Find One


Thinking of using a good luck charm to improve your chances of writing success? Follow these tips to discover what your special “writing luck” charm should be:

  • Look around your house for a small object you connect with a happy memory, such as a trinket or a picture.
  • Ask older relatives or mentors if they have anything they’re willing to give to you to use as a good luck charm.
  • If you have children, consider using something special they made or found for you — like a painted rock or a clay handprint.
  • The next time you have a really great day, reward yourself by buying a small keepsake you can keep on your desk that reminds you of those positive feelings.

Almost anything can (and has been) used as a good luck charm. Buttons, coins, and rocks are common examples — mostly because they’re easily lost, and then frequently found by others. Here are some other common good luck charms:

  • The St. Christopher medal is a charm said to protect travelers (St. Christopher was the patron saint of travelers)
  • The ankh is an ancient Egyptian charm for everlasting life and protection from illness
  • The fish charm, associated with Christianity, is said to attract wealth and abundance
  • Acorns are considered by the English to represent luck, prosperity, youthfulness, and power
  • The horseshoe (when pointing up) is an ancient emblem said to protect from evil
  • The ancient Greeks believed carrying three keys together unlocked the doors to wealth, health, and love
  • Primitive cultures viewed skulls as a symbol of strength that protects and ensures well-being
