Soon and Inevitably to be Rejected

See what I did there?  I took the form rejection letter's favorite phrase, "Your work is soon and inevitably to be accepted" and turned it on its head.  I'm so clever, it really is just a matter of time before my work is accepted.

Jai-Alai Magazine is a recent literary adventure for Miami, the brainchild of The University of Wynwood.  Jai-Alai's first issue sold out and Books & Books customers continually ask for more.  I tried to get into the second issue and got archived instead.  I found their 750-word limit for fiction a challenge;  I guess it proved too great.

It's not like I had my heart set on getting into it or anything, but it's tough to feel awesome when you work at one of only two drop locations in the city and you can't get any play.

Well, back to pushing the cursor.

    Head down, tail up, keep smilin'......

  2. Bound and rebound, bound and rebound.
