The Writer’s Prayer
On this, another day of writing, please inspire my word choices and guide my grammar.
On this, another day of promotion, please help me to whisper promoting thoughts into the ears of media specialists, classroom teachers, book store owners, parents and grandparents alike.
On this, another day of manuscript submissions, please spit polish the query so that the sparkle attracts the attention of the right editor or agent.
On this, another day of social media, please limit me to productive online time only.
On this, another day of email obsessing, please distract me with my first request.
With this prayer, I remain ever-so-faithfully a writer.
