  1. I really loved the insights here, especially the one about not dying with your gifts still inside.
    As for rejection being redirection, I think it’s also worth remembering that a good percentage of the time, rejection isn’t personal, it’s just your work didn’t land in the right place at the right time.


    1. This is so, so true! This is why I think redirection is so key — just because it’s not the right time for one publication/agent/reader, that doesn’t mean there isn’t someone else waiting for exactly what you have to offer! If we don’t redirect, we might miss out on our perfect fit!
