The Rejectomancer’s Grimoire: Resist Response

The next entry in the Rejectomancer’s Grimoire shields the rejectomancer from dangerous temptations. This minor enchantment is called resist response and prevents vulnerable rejectomancers from penning angry responses to rejections and reviews.  (If you’re wondering what all this rejectomancer stuff is, start here.)


Resist Response

1st-level rejectomancy 

Casting Time: 1 minute

Range: Self

Components: Somatic, Verbal

Duration: One hour

You strengthen your mental fortitude against deleterious temptation. For the duration of the spell, you gain advantage on Wisdom saves to resist responding to a rejection or a negative review. This spell is effective against all rejection and review formats, including email, social media, and Amazon.

The somatic component for this spell is turning off your computer and/or putting away your phone.


As I’ve said many times, responding to rejections and reviews is almost never a good idea. Make liberal use of resist response to protect your sanity. 🙂

  1. Another spot-on spell. Well done. I know at least one writer who needs this spell for the future, lest he accidentally send another scathing email to a writer when he meant to send it to a friend grousing.
