1. Thank you. Writing is an artform and open to criticism and like you say it’s only someone’s opinion. I guess I need to grow a thick skin! Thanks for the reassurance! #bloggerclubuk

  2. I think the point you make about never giving up is a valid one. I have a novel that I need to finish and start sending out to try and get an agent – I need to embrace the process! #BloggerClubUK

  3. Rejection can be so hard to take in all aspects of life. Never giving up is so important! Rejection is no reason to stop but to pick yourself up and try again. Lovely post.

  4. Hi, great advice which is also applicable to everyday life. Rejection is never easy but you can learn from it and turn it into a positive. Indeed we should never give up, Chloe #bloggerclubuk

  5. Some great tips here. Applicable to life, not just life as an author! My dad always used to say “rejection isn’t failure unless you give up- it’s only when we stop trying that we have failed” #Bloggerclubuk

  6. I just recently made my own site for writing and it is a lot of fun. I look forward to trying my hand at writing longer pieces and expect the inevitable rejections that will come. I appreciate the reminders you have listed here. #bloggerclubUK

  7. Rejection is a tough one to handle. The first is the worst. After that, it gets easier to move on – after lots of swearing! Maybe I’m just stubborn lol.

  8. There are so many different things in life that this can be relevant for. When I started blogging it was hard to find out I had missed out on opportunities or reviews of products I was really interested in and then seeing other people doing them instead but I soon learnt that it doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough and you should give up trying, it just means you weren’t 100% what that 1 person was looking for and that’s 1 person out of millions more! 🙂


  9. Rejection doesn’t just appear in writing. These points are valid for many other situations in life. I particularly love that you point out to own your feelings surely it’s unhealthy not to. #bloggerclubuk

  10. Lovely and inspiring post lovely. Good point about JK Rowling. I have not had rejection of actual writing yet, but I often get rejection from a campaign or blog pitch. So can totally relate to this. x
