    Laura Ingalls Wilder’s autobiography, written for adults, was rejected for years. Eventually, she used it as the basis to write her famous Little House books for children. Her annotated autobiography was finally published as Pioneer Girl last year and is a fascinating read.

    Stephen King was rejected so many times that he threw one of his works in the trash. His wife found it, liked it and made him finish it for her. The subject matter was of a teenager finally getting revenge on the bullies who tormented her in school, and at home, and, in time it became one of his most popular novels, Carrie.
