A good laugh

I always enjoy Rachelle Gardner's blog, but a recent post of hers really made me laugh out loud. It's called, "You Thought YOUR Rejections were Rough?" and includes book views and amazon comments about famous literary works. Always good to remember you can't and won't please everyone, so you might as well write what pleases you.

I'm beginning the revision process on a manuscript, so it's always encouraging to remember that even amazing literary giants have gotten harsh reviews.

Enjoy! My favorite is the comment on The Grapes of Wrath, since I remember thinking pretty much the same thing in high school when I had to read it.

  1. This was my favorite:

    The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
    “The book is not readable because of the overuse of adverbs.”
