The world now knows J.K. Rowling as one of the most successful and brilliant authors with her enormous book-to-movie ‘Harry Potter’ franchise. But before her first H.P. novel was published, J.K. was a broke, unknown author who couldn’t get the time of day from publishing houses. In fact she was initially rejected for ‘Harry Potter,’ amongst other books, by the gate-keeping, big-whig publishers.
However, J.K. had a little thing called “grit,” she was too stubborn to quit, and too sure in her own ability as a writer. So she forged on. Now she is J.K. Rowling, the billionaire author and one of the most powerful & influential people on the planet. Last Friday, she posted proof on Twitter how she faced rejection often, as a means of inspiring other struggling authors to perceiver.
