If you need a bit of writing inspiration.... or if the thought "Some writers have all the luck" has ever crossed your mind, check out this blog. Scene 13ers is a group of fabulous authors (myself included!) who have books coming out this year. This month the theme has been "Luck Vs Perseverance". I'll be posting "5 Ways to Make Your Own Luck" on March 22nd.
Whether it be luck or perseverance that gains personal success, one fact is certain--we've all worked our butts off to appear lucky.
Did you know... when a horseshoe is kept for luck:
Some believe the ends should point upward, creating a storage container that absorbs good luck. If it is tipped, the good luck falls out. (In that case, I wonder if you should tip it, so you can actually use the luck it contains!)
Others believe good luck comes from the shoe itself, and if the ends are pointed down, good luck falls upon all who are near.
Some people like having the protection of a horseshoe nailed over a doorway with the ends pointing down, so no evil can pass through its downpour of lucky goodness.
I have a few horseshoes that I've found over the years. I think they're buried in the garage, in what must be a very lucky box.
