  1. I enjoyed hearing about the struggle of these other famous writers. I also try not to dwell on the negatives anymore. It used to bother me more though.
    Also that is a clever picture.

  2. Thanks for posting this one. I think this is important for all writers to understand. One rejection or multiple rejections don’t mean one’s writing is a rejectee. Much of being a writer is just persistence.

  3. Yes to this! I have seen a lot of negativity lately too, about how striving for a writing career is a dream that will fail. But why is it so bad to reach for the dream you want? Not everything is always a failure, and it’s an individual’s perseverance and hard work which will see them through if they are really serious about it 🙂

    • People are rarely discouraged when they say they want to be a vet, a doctor and so on, which takes a lot of hard work and perseverance. It’s a shame so many people discourage those who want to be creative.

  5. I was only just thinking about some of those authors today 🙂 Thank you for sharing! In my mind, these people get picked up straight away. Imagine being the publishers who said no – I wonder if there is recourse….
