JK Rowling has spent her Good Friday morning giving aspiring writers a much-needed boost. The 50-year-old has tweeted two letters she once received from publishers, opting not to publish her work.
I pinned my 1st rejection letter to my kitchen wall because it gave me something in common with all my fave writers! https://t.co/ZmGNWDdF7x— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) March 25, 2016
The author when decided to share a reminder that even bestselling novelists get rejection letters.

I wasn't going to give up until every single publisher turned me down, but I often feared that would happen. https://t.co/bMKu4zJ3nm— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) March 25, 2016
After the success of Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Rowling opted to publish her next novel under a pseudonym, Robert Galbrath. Several rejections later, the “debut” novel was published by Little Brown in 2013, though Rowling was revealed to be the author after just a few months.
