Over 300 manuscript rejections can build resilience.


Today's featured local author is mental health advocate, Dwayne Jenkins. Dwayne and I talk about what inspired his published book, overcoming rejection from multiple publishing companies, and more!!!


Key Takeaways:

Never give up and keep going strong.

If you have a solid idea and a good story for a published book, keep at it.

Be comfortable inside of your own skin.

Inspiration can come from anywhere.

Believe in your own vision and show your passion in your work.

When writing a fiction book, have your characters thought out before you start writing.

Keep yourself mentally balanced.
