Even Jane Austin Tried, tried again

http://www.literaryreview.co.uk/bostridge_04_09.html  a very cool little article on how Jane Austin's novel was once rejected. You know I hear this all the time, and it doesn't suprise me at all. Reading a novel is so subjective many times, it is hard to recognize the good or bad in it. I know this mainly because I can pick up a novel that is said to be a classic, and gag through the first 50 pages. After a month try again, and again, and then eventually read the whole thing. Later, I could read it again, and sucked in and love it! It has happened to me before. I just wasn't in the mood for the book, until I was.

Also, if anyone wants to talk about their rejections, it might help others.
