if only i used my powers for good

For the second time, I’ve got a rejection along the lines of “We would have loved to publish your wonderful story, but unfortunately we just went broke.” This second one involved a personal phone call to let me know just how great the story was. (Great, apparently.)

Probably sounds like I’m protesting too much, but I do find this hysterically funny. Lo, I can bankrupt venerable literary journals with the power of my mighty jinx! Tremble before me!

Postscript: I called Ronnie at Writer’s Relief to let her know that I am serially ruining magazines. She said: “We’ll add it to your cover letter, it’ll go down a treat!”
