Just received this today. I submitted a story to Tin House six or eight months ago. Today I get a computer generated response. Nice.
Thank you for your submission to Tin House. Unfortunately, we must pass at this time. Best of luck placing your work elsewhere.

Also nice to know the exact second the message was generated. Truly, this doesn’t get me down. Instead it makes me want to write better, tune myself into my writerly surroundings and create more. Craft more.
It’s getting to be that time of year. The days are getting shorter, which leaves less to do in the evenings.
Goodbye, summer projects and other sources of procrastination. Hello, writing life.
