My Letter Of Rejection But Still We Write
This post has been seen 3056 times.
Someone once told me that she was afraid to write because she was afraid of all the rejections and criticisms she might get.
And I said
honey misses … if you want to become a great writer, you will face great and un-great criticism. You will face warranted and unwarranted rejection. Many people will tell you that you cannot write, or your book is not ready, or there is no space for your book.
But what the awesome writers do after getting these rejections is to do what they do best…what they were put on this earth to do and that is to write and write even more. Because the more you write the better you become. That is the secret. But if you like many others, stop writing and accept the rejection. And let it affect you deep down, then you rob the world of your talent.
So keep writing and use the rejections to power you on. I am driven now more than ever to write so well and so good, that down the line I will be at a Laterna book reading and say…there was a day when Laterna had no space for my books but now they do.
That’s what drives, and that ‘s what should drive you. Keep writing.
