I recently came across the older entries of a very interesting blog, Literary Rejections on Display.

Although the blog's creator has, ironically, moved on to a career as a published writer, the website still has posts wherein aspiring authors anonymously shared the rejection letters or some such they received after querying their written works to various agents.

"You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."
