Inspiration for ALL Writers!

We ALL love to see those wonderful acceptance letters arrive in the mail (or email!).  But when one of those rejections arrive, remember…a rejection does NOT necessarily mean your work isn’t good!  There are a million reasons work gets rejected that have nothing to do with the quality of the work (perhaps the publisher has recently accepted a work similar to yours, perhaps the editor likes a different style of work, perphaps the theme of a magazine or anthology has shaped itself in a different way than originally intended, etc.). Write your best, edit your best, and think of all the great writers of today who were rejected multiple times before their work took off.

  1. Thanks for this blog entry. Those of us writers who’ve experienced rejection sometimes feel very alone. It’s comforting to know that very successful authors felt the sting of rejection, too. Perhaps one lesson to take from this is: Persist! Keep submitting, keep writing & revising, keep reading, and believe in your work.
