JK Rowling shares rejection letters

Postby updog » Fri Mar 25, 2016 10:07 am

JK Rowling posted some of her pseudonym's rejection letters on twitter to encourage other writers. Thought you all might enjoy it also.

I wish she made it bigger so it was easier to read. I had to slide my bifocals over the end of my binoculars to get close enough to see.

I'd like to see her Harry Potter rejections, because the agents and publishers were definitely wrong about that. I wonder how many of them said 'uh wizards, no kid's going to want to read about that these days.'

I kind of have an unpopular opinion about reading famous author's rejection letters. :o
Be proud of your mistakes when they form from blinding passion. But now edit them.

It's reassuring to know that even famous writers had their struggles at the start. It's also encouraging and exciting. Your book might be coal to someone but gold to another

She's made literally a billion dollars on those novels now. That publisher must really regret that decision.
