I had an interview for a job the other day, and one of the interviewers revealed that she had received written a book and had received a rejection letter from a publisher/agent.  If I remember correctly she was pretty discouraged over the experience.  My response was that I was willing to accept a 100 rejections before I realized everyone was wrong and I needed to self publish.  🙂

J. K. Rowling also experienced rejection.  Her first book was submitted to twelve publishing houses, all of which rejected the manuscript.[43]

What is your tolerance for rejection? How many times can you be told your work is no good?  And will you still give up?

Whats been your experience?
