How things turn out

It is, though I hate to admit it, reassuring to know (and more so to be reminded) that even successful writers get/got rejected at some point in their careers.

I’ve been thinking about Even Amy Tan Gets Rejected, a post over at Ghost Word. What’s so intriguing about this is that it includes some text of rejections from the New Yorker (regarding a story) and a publisher (regarding the future The Joy Luck Club).

What’s great is that we all know how that turned out. It’s a nice change to see a rejection from the reverse, after the author in question has been published. I can’t help thinking, Ha! See? It can be done.
