Website Lets You Send Rejections To Yourself. But, Why?
Behold The Rejection Generator Project, a website at which you can enter your e-mail address, and you are sent a generic, cheeky rejection letter.
Here is the point of the project, as explained by the creators at The Stoneslide Corrective e-magazine.
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.
What do you think, LitReactors?
Is this an effective tool for helping writers gird their loins for rejection?
Or is it indicative of everything wrong in the writing profession today, wherein the internet has given us countless tools through which we procrastinate and create pointless kitsch that is ultimately meaningless, when what we really should be doing is concentrating on the craft of writing?
