If at first you don't succeed... | Trivia Tuesday

Those of you who follow me on youtube will know that I'm slowly working my way through the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I was doing a little research and I came across a fun fact I wanted to share.

I know we all love a good rejection followed by success story and it turns out Ingalls Wilder is another inspiration we can add to the list. 

The first memoir written was actually called Pioneer Girl and was initially rejected. Ingalls Wilder kept at it though and went on to complete her Little House series which have, of course, become children's classics; however, the original Pioneer Girl manuscript was published with annotations in 2014. I may just have to get my hands on that when I'm done with the main series.
