I talked with an author today; he shared with me how he had received rejection slip after rejection slip and my heart cringed for the pain he must have felt as he read each slip. I then thought about those calloused editors that sent out those slips. I understood that they were “just doing their jobs” but destroying dreams shouldn’t be a part of their job.
I got a little angry when I realized that this man could have given up after receiving so many rejections. I’m so happy he didn’t give up because he does have a story to tell and precious words to share with others. I would be thrilled to help him achieve his dreams.
The author today helped me to define the ultimate purpose for WMP. Making dreams come true for others is my dream for WMP.
