A Writer’s Blessing

Philbrick Photography

Being married to an Irishman, I spend a great deal of time staring at the various copies of An Irish Blessing, found throughout our house. Fortunately, it’s a beautiful verse, well worth reading.

Then one day it occurred to me that writers could use a blessing, too. So I adapted the Irish Blessing into the following Writer’s Blessing, in honor of the 2004 Romance Writers of America Conference in Dallas, Texas. I hope you enjoy.

May you always remember the thrill of being swept away by a really good book.
May the words you’re typing on the page be as worthy as the words running through your mind.
May your deadline be behind you.
May a good story lie ahead of you.
And as we go forth
May you always enjoy the journey to finding those two perfect words:
The End.
