This is probably the best piece I’ve ever read about rejection: "How Do You Know When to Quit?" by Toni McGee Causey.

All I could say was, "Wow," and, "I’ve been there."

Thanks to Robin Brande for the link.

  1. I sure needed to read this today. I have been hovering on the edge of “quitting” – thinking I am never going to be good enough. But, this was the dose of truth I needed to hear. Thanks!

  2. Oh, I’m so glad this gave you some hope, Julia. I think it’s also a good piece for non-writers to read, because they probably have no clue what writers have to go through!
