Never Stop Trying!
 
Rejection is one of the worst feeling in the world. Most aspiring authors are very familiar with the dreaded rejection letter. However, you're not alone. Did you know ...
 
 Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell received 38 rejections before publication.
 Anne Frank's The Diary Of A Young Girl was rejected 15 times.                            
 
 Lord Of The Flies by William Golding received 20 rejections before it was published.
 A Time To Kill by John Grisham was rejected by 12 publishers and 16 agents before it was published.
 Agatha Christie waited 4 years for her first book to be published.                       
 
 Stephenie Meyer's Twilight was rejected 14 times.                                               
 
 The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks received 24 rejections before publication.    
 
 J.K. Rowling was rejected 12 times and was told "not to quit her day job." If it wasn't for a CEO's eight-year-old daughter, who begged her father to print the book, we may still be waiting for Harry.
 Stephen King's Carrie received 30 rejections before being published.                 
 
 And last but not least, Louis L'Amour received 200 rejections. That's not a misprint, two hundred!
 
They all persevered and look where they are today! Never give up on your dream! Don't let anyone tell you, you're not good enough. Be proud of your work, and never stop trying. Eventually, you'll make it!
