Writers: How To Deal With Rejection! Have you been wondering how to deal with rejection? Anders Benson talks about his inspiration, his writing process, and how to deal with rejection. Anders' engaging video will first draw you into the world of his short stories, which is a dark and brutally honest place to be. He will then tell you about a different kind of dark and brutal world: that of the Writing Life.
Initially, Anders Benson was rejected by the Writer's Relief Review Board, and he points out that learning to deal with rejection is often the first step to success. Writer's Relief (http://www.WritersRelief.com) is a submission service that manages the submissions authors make to literary agents and editors. Only twenty percent of writers who apply are accepted. That means that eighty percent of applicants who hope to join Writer's Relief are rejected.
Relatively new to the perils of the professional publishing industry, Anders had to learn to deal with rejection quickly—and he did so with inspiring gusto! Instead of cowering, Anders rejoiced in the opportunity to improve his technique and write even better. His stories are not limited by genre, but they sometimes dwell in shadows of the dark and the macabre—with elements of mystery, horror, crime, murder, and literary psychological thrillers. Anders knew how to deal with rejection: He persevered.
On his second try, Anders was accepted by the Writer's Relief Review Board, and since then, two of his three submitted works have been accepted for publication. Of course, he still has to deal with rejection—all writers do. Making successful submissions can sometimes be a numbers game; the more you submit your horror, mystery, or crime fiction, the better.
"Writer's Relief offers more than the services they advertise," Anders Benson says. "If you're dedicated to having your work published, Writer's Relief is worth everything."
Writer's Relief is committed to supporting writers in their quest for publication. We manage as much or as little of the submission process as our clients need. We research submission guidelines for markets (literary agents or literary journals) for our writers' submissions; we identify those markets that are BEST for a unique work; we proofread, format, and track submissions; and of course, we also help our writers deal with rejection.
Writer's Relief offers many freebies on their website, including lots of helpful information about how to deal with rejection (and also, how to deal with acceptances!). Learn more about Writer's Relief and how writers deal with rejection!
