One thing I would say is this: If you’re interested in trying to publish your work, it’s important to figure out a strategy that helps to manage the constant rejection that’s endemic to this pursuit. The ideal is to convert each grim dismissal into inspiration and industry, but that’s often not possible. Feel these things, experience them, but don’t let them defeat you. Gain strength from the basic truth at the center of each disappointment: That you were brave enough to write something and put it out in the world.
