Here’s a nice collection of articles about handling rejection from Writer’s Relief.
Agents may not read all of your sample pages. Here are some reasons they stop. A fascinating post from Writers Digest!
I haven’t been rejected much lately, but just because I haven’t submitted much. I’m still working on my novel and I have a terrific assignment.
I’ve looked at my old picture book manuscripts, and most of them just don’t work for the current market. I have a new one that’s close, but I won’t have time to work on it this week.
Anyway, back to rejections. Everybody who sends work out gets them, even famous award-winning writers. I’ve come across some great posts on the subject that are worth sharing.
If you have ever been told you couldn’t do something, or that you should just give up, here’s an article you should read right now. It isn’t just for writers or illustrators. It’s for everyone with a dream.
