- Query Letter: Done.

- Short Synopsis: DONE! (I thought it was done on Wed., but I was wrong...I hadn't even started it. Oops.)
Does anyone have any rituals or superstitions about sending out those first query letters for a project? Just dropping them off at the mailbox and walking away (okay, being dragged away after I try to shove my hand back into the mailbox to retrieve my babies) seems so...simple. I mean, I do the same thing with bills and birthday cards. And yet this is my career, and my hopes and dreams and blah blah blah.
Even worse, though, is e-queries. Don't get me wrong, I love them for many reasons (speedier! less wastier! cheaper!), but it's just clicking a mouse button. Yet so much depends on it.
Ooh! Now I'm inspired.

Erm. My deepest apologies to William Carlos Williams.
Anyhow...so, anyone have any rituals they'd like to share?
