When my first book was rejected in 1977 I took it very personally. To add insult to injury Cheap Air Max Tavas , my manuscript had been relegated to the children's book department, and rejected from there. The letter arrived in mid December as I was holding my breath for that Christmas miracle. I sulked through the holidays, stunned.
I didn't immediately begin writing another book. I was in denial. Had I gotten someone else's letter? This was before the computer age, before cutting and pasting and mail merging. I knew from experience, typewriters were pretty reliable. You had to roll in the paper, and the keys would strike a ribbon and instantly print words. I had to acknowledge that the letter was addressed to me Cheap Air Max Tailwind , and made specific reference to the humor in my work. The editor even requested my other projects?for young adults! Was my life's work to be writing for adolescents? Weren't they just one step below artists on the humanity scale? More importantly, wasn't I just one of them a few years before, and an eclectic one at that?
I had been commuting to a job in a New York advertising agency, and despite the excitement of working in a high rise, I felt the strain of the long days on my social and writing life. It was my first job out of college, and I grabbed it with both hands Cheap Air Max Invigor , happy to be employed in any communications? field. I had only been working for three months, but I wanted what anyone wanted in corporate New York, an office, then an office with a window, then a corner office with a view. It was a small company with at least two other aspiring writers working there, two writers with families and mortgages who were now excited to be producing single sentence copy Cheap Air Max Fury , and vying for editorship of our company newsletter. I could no longer view my job as a roadblock to my writing vocation. I had to see it for what it was--ultimate death.
I stayed in mourning over that rejection letter until the spring, and then decided on a course of action. I would quit my conventional job. I would accept only temporary and freelance work, hopefully enough to pay my rent. I would read every best seller I could find with a modicum of voice, and eventually I would write another book, this time for grown ups.
Boy was it hard to stay unemployed when you knew how to type. It was especially difficult when you knew how to type numbers. My student work assignment had been typing logs for the college radio station, so when I found out I could make an extra dollar an hour doing 'technical? typing on the freelance circuit Cheap Air Max Flyknit , I jumped at it. I was offered permanent employment at Lowenstein's, where I conscientiously typed contracts for fabric imports. When I turned the position down, I had to vacate the chair. I was offered a position in the typing pool at Elizabeth Arden, where there was a life of free lunch and perfume samples. But I determinedly went on my way. One morning, I was typing contracts in the purchasing department at NBC, and the temptation to stay there was so great Cheap Air Max Flair , I called out sick during lunch. Several years later, after more rejections slips, I would hold my breath for a lowly clerk's position at NBC, but I wasn't ready to cry peacock yet.
Of the stack of rejections I have received over the years, that 1977 letter would remain the most significant, if not the most positive rejection of my collection. It addressed me by name Cheap Air Max Dynasty , it referenced my story, it complimented me on my humor, and it asked me for more material. Perhaps if I had received one of the form rejections I later encountered, I would have stayed safe and employed in the Greybar building. My first rejection letter may not have been the career launch I was hoping for, but between the lines, it did whisper Cheap Air Max BW , ?Keep going.? For me, that was enough.
