Jojo Meyes is an author of “Me Before You” book that has sold over 5 million copies.
 
This blog, Dear Writers, is for you.  It will give you the inspiration that it takes to show you what another author has gone through in order to be a writer.  I read about this author in the Costco Connection magazine September 2015 Volume 30 Number 9.
 
The article states that Ms. Meyes wrote her first book as an “exercise” just to see if she could do it.  She sent it to an agent and that agent said, that it was not publishable; however, that she had a voice and should keep trying.
 
She wrote a second book and it was rejected.  She wrote a third book and it was rejected.  After her second rejection she went to bed for 3 days (yes, it can be depressing being turned down).  Then she states she could NOT “not write” so she tried again.  She then wrote three chapters of “Sheltering Rain” and sent it to an agent and it ended up being her first published book.
 
Note, Dear Writers, each rejection gets you closer to a YES, that acceptance and closer to that goal of having a published book.
If there is anything I have ever learned it is keep trying, the moment you stop trying you are a failure so keep trying.
 
And this, Dear Writers, is another try to motivate us.  Yes, me too, US!
