We're Sorry To Say This Prompt Isn't A Fit For Us At The Moment, But We Look Forward To Seeing More Of Your Prompts In The Future
Putting yourself and your talents up for sale can be agonizing, whether it's sending out applications for a job you now you're overqualified for, sending out writing submissions for contests or publication, making a dating profile, or just asking your most selfish family member for a favor. William James, a poet out of New Hampshire has spent the last several years chronicling his poetry submission rejections, as well as his acceptances. It's pretty baller.
But, sometimes, we find ourselves on the other end of the process, having to accept or reject someone's art, someone's help, someone's advances, whathaveyou. This prompt asks you to write a rejection letter, be it polite, stern, or downright sassy, for a condition in your life that you no longer find acceptable. Tell unemployment it is unwelcome at your house. Tell depression to go fuck itself (or tell joy to go fuck itself, don't let any of your emotions tell you what to do). Or, just let your nut allergy politely know that it just doesn't seem like it's going to work out for you.
