Rule #2: DON’T. GIVE. UP. Ever. Never say die. If you’re anything like me, you may be rejected, criticized, humiliated and disappointed over a hundred times. But stay hungry. Fight with everything you have. Keep on editing, rewriting, and submitting, over and over. Don’t stop. You cannot fail if you never give up. Rule #3: Embrace all criticism. It’s there to help. Fix and change whatever you’re told to. Be flexible and receptive.
Rule #4: Always remember (as countless agents & publishers will always infuriatingly remind you in their rejection slips) that the industry is subjective. There’s a market for every genre and writing style & level. You just have to find the best match for YOU. That may be like finding a needle in a haystack, but with tons of relentless hard work and a few persistent prayers, you will find the one. Just keep looking.
