A simple web search on ‘famous authors and rejection’ will reveal many instances where they too labored and toiled over their beloved stories and writings only to be rejected. Sometimes over and over again.
It is part of the writing life not to be loved by all readers. But these authors persevered and kept writing because they knew that ‘author’ was part of their life’s story.
Whether trying to get published traditionally or not having much success selling your self-published book(s), remember the long history of writers that have gone before you that were also rejected. But at the appointed time achieved success.
And we can remember the rejection of the Original Author, Jesus, the most famous author of all time who has been rejected over and over [Luke 17:25], but then take comfort knowing that millions have loved His love story to us all as well.
Lord, help me to persevere despite rejection and seemingly huge book fails. Help me to trust in Your timing and plan for my life regarding my writing and its success. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
