6. Stephen King
Here’s the proof that true love really matters. Stephen King’s first novel was turned down by so many publishing houses, even he started to doubt his own imagination.
Fortunately, his wife took the manuscript out of the garbage after Stephen threw it away and convinced him to keep trying. A few months later, Carrie was out and became a best-selling novel.
Today, Stephen King is one of the most popular contemporary authors thanks the The Shining, It or The Green Mile.
