Perseverance

As an author, I already have three times as many rejections as acceptances, but my pile is dwarfed by another fiction writer that I know.

She boasts over six hundred of the old fashioned – paper, envelope, stamps – rejections before she sold her first manuscript to a traditional publishing house. She went on to sell several manuscripts since that first time until finally crossing into self-publishing after her platform grew.

She attributes her success to one thing: perseverance.

While she waited to hear about one submitted manuscript, she wrote another manuscript to submit elsewhere. And then another. She believed that she had a message to give and kept putting herself forward until she was heard.

After each rejection, she returned. And in all this hard work of trying, she improved her craft, and her skills grew until success found her.

Rejection is an inevitable byproduct of trying, but perseverance is the only vehicle that will carry a writer to success.

So, remember, as always, don’t give up. Keep writing!
