What to do with rejection letters

I'm sure y'all have seen this, but it's just too cute not to share!

Ha! And while I don't necessarily advocate ripping up all of your rejection letters, the theory is a good one! Take what you can learn from it and then move on - don't dwell!!

Hope you guys had a great Monday!


  1. Very cute :) I have a quick writing question. What do y'all do about research? How much is too much research? And do you keep yourself motivated to keep writing? Just the thought of research brings my writing excitement way down. It really bothers me that I literally can't write anything without research. How do y'all cope with that?

  2. That's what I don't write historicals - too much research =P Seriously though, its often pretty quick to just google something or make a phone call to a real place and ask your questions, or interview someone in the job field of your character. Research can be really fun, don't think of it as "blah". Reading a hundred pages on the landscape and weather patterns of a particular city can definitely get old. But unless you're writing about a time period (historicals) I don't see why you would need to research yourself to the point of boredom. Can you get more specific with your struggle? What idea do you have that would involve research you don't want to do? And if you don't want to do it, maybe its not the right project idea for now? Just a thought! :) (ps - this is why so many stories are set in a fictional town!!!!)
