Rejection is painful! PAINFUL!
And: rejection is one of the main themes of Western culture.
Full disclosure: contains my passionate polemic 'There is blood on the floor', connecting the strong, dramatic emotions of the rejected writer with the the poetic tradition of Catullus and Emily Bronte.
Rejection and writing passionately about rejection go back over two thousand years.

Read this book to get different experiences and perspectives on this life changing experience. If you are a writer, read it
