Have you ever felt the sting of rejection by publishers, family or friends? If so, you are in good company. Reading through some of these rude rejections experienced by 30 famous writers should give you the fortitude you need to keep on writing and publishing.

 

Famous authors such as:

 

George Orwell.  One publisher rejected Mr. Orwell's submission, Animal Farm, with these words:

 

It is impossible to sell animal stories in the USA. 

 

And this one about one of my favorite authors: John Grisham. Mr. Grisham’s first novel, A Time to Kill, was rejected by a dozen publishers and 16 agents before breaking into print and launching Mr. Grisham's best-selling career. 

 

Write on!
