Kathryn Stockett, author of the bestselling novel The Help, didn’t give up after even sixty rejections:
“The point is, I can’t tell you how to succeed. But I can tell you how not to: Give in to the shame of being rejected and put your manuscript—or painting, song, voice, dance moves, [insert passion here]—in the coffin that is your bedside drawer and close it for good. I guarantee you that it won’t take you anywhere. Or you could do what this writer did: Give in to your obsession instead.”
Be sure to read the full article, then spend this weekend giving into whatever obsession is driving you.
