A wish of good luck offered to a writer. The term is to Break a Leg which is offered to an Actor. Break a Lead is rumored to stem from the ancient practice of breaking a piece of lead into a small chard suitable for writing.
"Break a Lead", the editor said to his reporter as he sat down to write his cover story.
