Kathryn Stockett's 'The Help' Turned Down 60 Times Before Becoming a Best Seller | Health, Beauty, Fashion, Love, Careers and more - MORE Magazine

AND ONCE AGAIN I POST REJECTION REVISITED

and my thoughts on rejection:

Here's my final word on rejection---after enduring years on my own writing and a year on behalf of my writers (yes, agents feel the sting of rejection much more than you all since there are few of our writers who sell their books without at least one rejection):

Write the best book you can.
No really, go back and look at it with a critical eye.
Revise.
Revise some more.
One, maybe two...three, four, five more times.
And then believe.

Believe in your words. Believe in your creation. Believe in yourself.
Now get out there and submit. Rejection is part of the process.
Deal with it and move on.
