Rejections make me think.
I think about my story. I think about my query letter. And as I suppose one would expect, I start to question every little dream that I had built over the course of writing my book, revising it, and getting ready for submission.
I know what you’re going to say. Don’t give up! Never give up! etc. etc. However, when do you think, maybe I do need to give up? Maybe this book just isn’t it. I mean, not all books get published, so some books, no matter how resilient and determined the author was, will never get there. It’s just simple mathematics.
So, how do you know when to give up?
