Rejected!

January 23, 2018

I doubt that Stephen King worries much about rejection slips anymore. But, the fact that the work of a man with his talent experienced multiple rejections should serve as encouragement for us mere mortals who write. The moral of this story is he didn't quit. Ever. He just kept on writing and kept on submitting until some unknown editor of a magazine of questionable quality finally said, "Yes," and paid Mr. King for an article. It was a start. Not enough to quit his job at the laundromat, but enough to help buy groceries. Again, he didn't quit. He wrote on his lunch hour and in the evenings. King did what my dad used to advise, "Support your dream until your dream can support you." Just don't quit.
