|Isn't the anthology cover amazing? :)|
Today I thought I'd ramble about the short story I'm working on for Untethered Realm's next anthology. The title is Spirits in the Water, which left me scratching my head as to what to write about. I don't do much with spirits...or water.... But, I finally hit on something that I had a lot of fun with and I can't wait to share with you all when the anthology releases.
Here's the thing: I came across this little clip from Tumblr that talked about how maybe we all have some kind of "gift" that we just don't really know about or appreciate. Sometimes it's more obvious, but not generally. It got me thinking. What if there were a world where this occurred? Where everyone had some kind of gift, but most of the time it was just like never really losing your keys, or if you drop your toast it always lands butter-side-up. Something that you probably wouldn't even think about because it was normal for you. I had a little fun with the idea and made it so that sometimes when parents with distinct gifts have children, sometimes the gifts don't mesh very well, which leads to all sorts of problems :)
But what about in real life? Some people do have little bits of luck. Like, they mostly hit green lights. Or they never seem to run out of salt. Or they always put their stamps on straight. It may be little, but it's kind of fun to think about. I happen to have relatively decent parking luck--not always, and not consistently, but I generally get decent spots :) Of course, I have really lousy red-light luck and hit them more frequently than one would think. (So much so that on family trips my family often argues about who I shouldn't ride with, just so they don't hit all the lights...)
This brings me to my question: do you have any little things, or big things, that you're lucky at? I'd love to hear them!
