I heard somewhere that baseball players turn their socks inside out before a game, to ensure good success (this might be completely off base – apologies for the bad pun!) I’ve never heard of such a ritual for good luck in the writing world. But personally, when I send off a submission by post, I have my own little ritual – a kiss on the envelope for good luck. Fair enough, I haven’t noticed any improvement in my chances with a submission when I do it, and in fact, I’m more of a cynic than a superstitious type of person, but it’s become something of a habit for me over the years. Maybe I’m simply too sensitive. I think I’ll just go off and write some poems about sunsets and serene oceans now…!
