I have a large home. With lots of stuff. And though I feel obliged to regularly dispose of things — pawning them off on friends, donating them to charity shops, dropping them into the recycle bin — sometimes I just can’t resist adding a new possession. Particularly when it comes to Virginia Woolf.

Virginia Woolf Sainted Writers Secular Prayer Candle

Currently available prayers, copied from the Etsy shop web page of Sainted Writers owner Michelle, are:

✑ prayer for essay writers
✑ prayer for readers
✑ prayer for creative writers
✑ prayer for prelims exam success
✑ prayer for dissertation writers
✑ prayer for thesis writers
