I just posted about my latest rejection letter.
Well, I am not alone. After a little internet research, I found out the following:
Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach received 18 rejections.
Chicken Soup for the Soul received a total of 140 rejections.
Dubliners by James Joyce received 22 rejections.
Carrie by Stephen King received 30 rejections.
He then threw it in the trash.
His wife, Tabitha, fished it out.
He sent his story around again and it was eventually published.
Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell received 38 rejections.
A Wrinkle In Time received 29 rejections.
Dr Seuss books received 15 rejections.
Looks like I'm in pretty good company, so I think I'll keep mailing my stories out.
