INSPIRATION: Rejection letter saved


Did you save your first rejection letter? Jack London saved his — one of several hundred he received over his career. I took a picture of the rejection, scribbled at the bottom of his query, when I visited the busy Jack London State Park in California’s Sonoma Valley.

“Interest in Alaska has subsided,” said the editor who turned his nose up. Oops. Interest in Alaska (and Jack London) is still strong.
