Why must writers suffer the failure of rejection? It does serve a purpose, even if we don’t want to admit it. Rejection forces us to get better. It forces us to learn. It forces us to build connections, friendships, and relationships with those who share our same passion - the ones who encourage us to keep going & get better.
If writing was easy, everyone would do it. It's hard to sell books amongst so much competition now, imagine how hard it would be if everyone who tried, got published?
So the next time you get a rejection letter, remember, it's one more step toward getting better, one more step to getting published.
