So as I sit here I realize I have a lot of items that surround where I work. They are my talisman’s of a sort.
My bestest bud, “V” got me this great fairy charm and a door for them to enter through. I have a dragon sitting watch on the door frame, she also got for me. I have a small statue, which I’ve had for years, of the “Guardian of Hopes and Dreams” – which is also one of my tattoos.
What does this all means to me?
These are the things I choose to have around me when I write. I don’t need a picture of my heroine, I know what she looks like (but I like the form she will be in). I don’t need a picture of a handsome man for my hero – again I know what he looks like too. But what I do need are the things that inspire me to go forward and do this grueling business. A reminder, that this is a dream and there is someone or something, helping me watch over it and keep me in line.
These are my Talisman’s….Do you have one, or two?
