Send Yourself a Rejection Letter

What was the worst rejection letter you ever received? Rejection is a big part of the writing life, and one website can help you cope.

Over at the Stoneslide Corrective, you can send yourself an automatically generated rejection letter, customized for your favorite kind of rejection. The flavors of mean letters range from Old Belcher to Southern Gentleman to The Civil Gesture.

Check it out: “The Rejection Generator rejects writers before an editor looks at a submission. Inspired by psychological research showing that after people experience pain they are less afraid of it in the future, The Rejection Generator helps writers take the pain out of rejection. We have several flavors of pre-rejection available for you today. Each is painful and discouraging in its own way. We encourage you to get the one that really feels right to you.”
