So I've been keeping track of my publications and my rejection pledge (I know, it was 2006 when everyone did rejection pledges, but I'm slow) and such in my AW sig.

I took it down for April Foolery, and hadn't bothered to put it back.

Since then I haven't heard a single response from editors.

So I'm putting it back, darnit :D
...Bets on me getting a big fat R tomorrow morning?

(And any other superstitious editor-oriented behavior to share?)

I consistently drink a just-below-lethal amount of coffee every day in the belief that editors will feel my vibrations in their offices and notice me.

I only have agent-oriented superstitions so far - I'm sure if I ever get to the next stage they'll be a thousandfold worse.

My husband got me The Query Bell, a very nice little rune-carved bronze bell probably intended to be decorative (you'd think he'd have learned better by now; I love all noisemakers). It started out as a joke, me ringing it after a submission: now I do it every time. Not sure what I think it's going to accomplish, exactly.
