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.
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?
