Finding the Positives in Creative Rejection with Chris Millin
What do you do when you want to be a writer, but more than fifty publishers have rejected your manuscript? You keep writing and you never give up on the dream, that’s what you do! You take all the little nuggets of positivity sprinkled throughout those rejections and you use them to hone your writing and to strengthen your character.
Christopher talks about how a decade of literary rejection and wrong turns lead him to the world of Children’s Literature, and how perseverance, positivity and letting go of ego were the keys to his success, not just in the creative arts, but also in life.
He is the author of The King of Arugula (Thistledown Press, 2007) and the former publisher of Crow Toes Quarterly (2007-2011), an arts and literature magazine for children. You may know him better as the guy who owned and operated Saint-Germain Café-Gallery in Penticton.
