The Rejection Garden is less about rejection,
and more about creativity, persistence, and joy.
Over the next month,
I am going to share one Tree or Manuscript with you, not in its entirety,
instead, I’ll post a synopsis, how many times it has been rejected, and then,
I’ll finish with my favorite line and include a picture of the tree and name tag.

Hook: One promise. One goal-to have fun. This promise healed Paul Elvstrom, a four-time Olympian, and strengthened his bond with his daughter Trine. One joyous, fast-paced adventure for both sailors and, the world, as they charted a new course into the record books.
This is a lyrical, adrenaline-pumping, joyous ride over the ocean during a race. I enjoy many lines from this story. This is one.
Paul and Trine's wide smiles,
painted in sea salt bloomed as they attacked the course in unison,
their bodies outstretched like wings off the hull."
