I wrote a novel. I sent it to many literary agencies. None wanted it. I shelved it. 2 years later I edited the crap out of it and resubmitted. I'm getting rejections again. Do I re-edit and try again in several months? Or do I self publish and just chaulk it up to not being good enough yet, in hopes that maybe my 2nd or third or fourth does get picked up? Steven King said that it takes 12 full length novels before you write one worth publishing. How much truth is there to that?
