Poison Pen

Is my literary touch poison? I have an uncanny ability to attach myself to doomed projects. At the risk of seeming solipsistic, I feel sometimes that my very interest blows in the breath of doom. Magazines go under, anthologies get scrapped, projects lose their funding, just as I've become devoted to contributing to them. Does this happen to everyone with such alarming frequency?

  1. Sometimes I feel the soccer team I am rooting for always comes up short. In other words, if I watch the game, they lose. If I don't watch the game, they win. Sometimes I feel I should disassociate myself from my favorite teams, and start rooting for "the other side".
