“Writerly Comfort”

I sent this postcard to my best pen pal, Rachel,
basically venting about how tough it is to experience
struggles and failure as a writer.


After receiving the card she said:

“I watched the documentary about JD Salinger this weekend. His dream was to be published in the New Yorker. He was rejected 650 times before he was accepted. Writerly comfort for us all.”

This made me feel a lot better.

For all the writers out there…
do not succumb to failure!
