Five Important Truths About Rejection and Your Children’s Book
7/25/2012 5:40:30 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

Rejection letters can stop you cold in your tracks or move you forward successfully toward a successful career as you publish your children’s book or article. Once you learn to overcome the limitations placed on you by these untrue ideas, you’ll begin moving forward with your writing career.
•Don’t take rejections like a personal affront: This was always one of my big obstacles. It’s hard not to take rejections personally after you’ve worked tirelessly to present your manuscript, or article. Remember that every writer in the world has gotten rejection letters. It doesn’t mean that the editor hates your work. It means your submission doesn’t fit into his or her present format. The reason could be as simple as that they’ve recently published a similar article.
•Check out the guidelines carefully: It’s important to note that guidelines apply to everyone, with no exceptions. You wouldn’t want to submit a one thousand word article about how to combat bullying to a magazine or online publication that only accepts five hundred word articles about sports. If you do your research carefully, you can avoid the rejection letter.
•Editors may not respond in a personal note: Remember that editors are very busy. They receive hundreds of articles or manuscripts a week. They may not reply at all, or they may only send you a form letter. Perhaps the editor said they might be interested in publishing your work in six months. At least you can plan for the future.
•Try broadening your horizons: Maybe you’ve just published your first children’s book, but you’re thinking about writing for magazines. Or maybe you love writing children’s books, but you need to find a new subject that would appeal to children. You might write about the funny things that happened when you spent the summers on your grandparents’ farm. You’ll be surprised about the subjects kids will love.
•Keep an open mind: Even if you’ve been writing for years, it’s important to remember that there are always new areas to learn and explore. Maybe you’ve never tried blogging, but you have some great ideas to share with others. You might surprise yourself on successful you can be with new ventures and you’ll feel excited about your accomplishment.
•In summary;
•Keep in mind that anything is possible, even new ventures. Open your mind to opportunities and learn from past experiences. You’ll find that you’ve succeeded in areas that you may never have imagined
