Writer's Block: I can walk under ladders

I thought I'd try answering this one as it did come up in my friends page.

As much as people might call me lucky (Wendy for example), I don't actually believe in 'luck' exactly. I believe that certainly if you enter more contests there's a greater likelihood of winning something eventually (which I do enjoy). And if you don't give up opportunities that you can take advantage of situations that otherwise wouldn't arise, but I don't chalk it up to 'luck' exactly. That isn't to say that sometimes life doesn't smile or frown on a person, but rather that it isn't based on being lucky or not. Chaos is a fact of life but life is not entirely chaotic: there are predictable factors.
