I received over sixty rejections when pitching my first Doodles novel until I was finally given an offer. Imagine if I had given up at any one of those points, and believe me, with each rejection it became harder and harder to persevere. I struggled to complete the first book in my Doodles Lanhorn series because I had a young baby who decided she was not going to sleep well for about a year. But instead of sulking about being too physically and mentally exhausted, I decided to make use of the time I spent walking my daughter at night. I wrote ninety-nine percent of my series on my iPhone while holding the baby in my other arm. When I had time, I would transfer what I wrote onto my computer to edit it.
       The Doodles Lanhorn series —Hannacroix Creek Books, Inc. publishes Doodles Lanhorn and the Quest to Save Inner Earth and Doodles Lanhorn and the Search for the Missing Artifact —was born from my passion for the arts and wanting to pair it with a few important underlying themes of anti-bullying and the importance of friendship. For those of you who have not read any of the Doodles Lanhorn novels, Doodles is a red-headed boy of 13 who doesn’t feel very popular but he has recently discovered the powers of Wizartry, the art of drawing something and making it come to life. 
       I do not know how other writers go about their writing, but my approach was to write in a very stream of consciousness way where I pre-planned and constructed the world and the characters in it, but put them in difficult situations and figured out how to solve it as I went along. It seemed to just flow out of me and made me more excited to find out what happened next. I highly recommend trying different writing methods until you find the one that works best for you.
       As I continue writing additional books in the Doodles Lanhorn series, I find myself struggling to make sure I keep up the previous caliber of writing. Taking some breaks and refocusing has really helped. Taking time off when needed, multitasking to get writing done, persevering despite rejections, and finding a theme you are actually passionate about—these lessons are what has helped me to accomplish what I have one and I hope that it will help you on your journey.

Rejection will always be a part of writing. The key to success in writing is to keep on writing, reading, and improving. I've written a book myself and even though it's still in the editing phase, I still have to anticipate rejection. You can't please everyone so might as well just work on your craft until you've perfected it. Just keep on writing.

This is not easy to face rejection in your life on anything like rejection on school life when you are a junior student or when you are in your practical life and stand on an earning position. People can go in depression because of rejection. When you are facing rejection in your life you can communicate with your senior and family also to get a better advice.

Make plan first before doing anything do research take awareness and do discuss with your circle to find something new can be your key of success and by chance if you got rejection so don’t forget that “NO” means NEXT OPPORTUNITY.
