We have talked here before about rejection and failure.
Ms. Stockett has a never give up attitude.
It took her a year and a half to write the book.
Her agent sent her a rejection letter stating it did not hold his interest.
Not only was her book published, it has been made into a movie.
She was rejected time and time again.
Her 40th rejection stated "there is no market for this kind of tiring writing".
This is a perfect example of never, never, never, give up.
