Her husband made a good comment though. When looking at yet another rejection, he basically told her that, yes, she's getting a lot of rejections, but if she stopped sending stuff out, she would miss the one that eventually says yes.
What a mountain of support. In the face of so much negativity, he turns it to a positive and helps her keep on.
I've got that kind of support from my husband too. And I thank God every day for him.
But what about those writers who don't have that kind of support? Who struggle every day by themselves or in the face of family ridicule? I know a couple of people like that and my hat is off to them. They continue going even when there is nothing or nobody to lean on. Hopefully, they will find support in other ways. There are myriad on-line groups or in-person groups they can join. But even if they cannot, they have the strength and fortitude to support themselves. To them, I offer my admiration.
Support is important, no matter the source. We need it in many aspects of our lives. May you all enjoy some aspect of it, as my friend and I do.
