For some road-to-publishing fun, I decided to take some of the most [in]famous rejection letters (sent to UBER famous authors), and combine them into one hellish rejection.
May the dreaded form rejection never look quite-so-bad again, my fellow author-ly types. Have a fabulous day. <3333

— Cassandra Clare
Cheers to all you badass writers out there, being brave every single day. Don’t think you’re awesome?
YOU stare rejection in the face and laugh.
Sure, sometimes you may cry, but guess what? YOU STILL PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE. Which makes you one helluva badass. Just sayin. XOXO

Be like Fluffy with your writing. The more you read and write, the better you’ll get. I pinky swear. XOXO
