Rejections are tough. But they are more difficult when you’re a writer. Because with every rejection, sometimes, comes a dose of dejection that gradually eats you. And it’s hard to think of the way forward.
It is astonishing when you think about the number of writers who give up with every rejection. But it is important to remember one thing – to never lose hope. Don’t let that hard work rot from abandonment. It needs to breathe, and for that you need to take it out and often. Your manuscript needs to knock on many doors at possible, and that’ll only happen when you let it out, and not keep it locked up.
Forget about the number of times it didn’t work, but don’t forget trying. You never know which attempt of yours will turn into a success-pot. And here’s a quote to motivate you through those damp days of rejection!
