Rejection Revisited and Breaking the Mold

I'm pretty sure I have discussed rejection at some point on this blog. 

I'm sure. 

It plays such an important part of a writers career. 

If one isn't rejected, then they will not be humbled. They will think everything they put out is wonderful. 

There will be no distinction between good and bad, and we will have to deal with mediocre work when searching for that next title to read.

Blockbusters will be measured on a different scale.

We have a way we look at ourselves. Self reflection can add to our soul. We can break habits and grow in new directions-become the writers that will eventually make it. 

That’s the key.


If you don’t get rejected, then you will never know what it’s like to loose. Just like in life, those born with the proverbial silver spoon never know what it’s like to be poor, to go into the corner grocer with a dollar to grab two 25 cent cakes and a 50 cent soda. 

And that was lunch!

It shapes your outlook and how much harder you press, how much more you work to get published.

And it raises the bar of quality. 

I have to break the mold. 

And remember. It's not always personal. Most of the time your story just didn't fit in with what the editor was looking for. 

What does rejection do for you? Do you feel it makes you better, or just depresses you to the point of quitting? Or do you never get rejected?
