How a little girl’s journey to becoming an author has inspired me

Written by David Levett, who has written for the BBC, TIME, Newsweek, The Atlantic and many others, and featuring his young daughter Meghan, the documentary “Meghan” tells the story of the daughter of a writer, whose first book was rejected by many of her publishers.
Meghan was only 11 years old when she received her first rejection, the story goes.
“She didn’t really want to read,” recalls her mother, Laura.
“I didn’t know what to say.”
It was not an uncommon situation for young children to be rejected, but Meghan’s was different.
The rejection was a sign of a deep, abiding sadness.
For her, rejection was not something she wanted to experience.
“For Meghan to not want to be accepted was a real challenge,” she says.
“And it was an act of rejection that caused a lot of pain.
She felt she had to do something.”
The story, which explores the pain that rejection can cause, is told through a wide range of perspectives and experiences.
From the author and her own experiences as a child and teenager, through the work of writers like J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman and J.R.
R Tolkien, to Meghan herself, who was a teenager when she first rejected her first book.
It is the story behind the book, which was written by Meghan and first published in 2015.
“It was a tough, hard book,” Meghan tells TIME, reflecting on how it was rejected.
“In some ways, it was the hardest book I’ve ever written, and the hardest one I’ve written in the last decade.”
Meghan recalls her initial rejection letter.
“The first time I read it, I was in tears,” she recalls.
“A lot of my life I’d wanted to be a writer.
And this book was about being rejected by a publisher, but I didn’t feel like I was ready to take the step.”
A year later, Meghan received her second rejection letter, this time from a publisher that was interested in her story.
“They were very clear about how this story was meant to be read, that this is how they wanted to tell it.
And I was like, ‘You’re not telling me what I want to hear.'”
In the process of finding her publisher, Meghans experience with rejection became even more difficult.
“One of the reasons why I was so upset about that was that the rejection letter wasn’t from a literary agent.
It was from the publishing house.
And they didn’t even ask me any questions about the story.
” I felt like I had to have it,” she tells TIME. “
Meghan said she was devastated by the rejection, which left her feeling “really depressed, like a lot.
” I felt like I had to have it,” she tells TIME.
“That’s the first thing I really did was go and look up the book online and read all the reviews.”
After looking through the reviews, Megan decided to take a chance and buy the book from a bookstore.
She also wanted to create a story based on the book she had written, to help raise awareness for bullying in the literary world.
“At that time, it wasn’t a big deal,” she told TIME.
But the decision was a significant one for her.
“After I bought the book and read the book I felt really bad about it.
But then I thought, ‘I don’t want to do this.
I don’t know if this will work.
I want the book to be as big as possible.
This is why the book is important.” “
This is why I want this book.
This is why the book is important.”
It’s a story of an underdog in a long, dark history, which is reflected in the title of the book.
Megh’s story of finding hope is not typical of children who have been rejected.
The book’s title comes from a famous passage from the 18th century French play “The Devil’s Christmas” by Édouard Manet, which has become a popular Christmas song.
“When we write Christmas stories, we often have to look for the Devil’s devil,” says Meghan.
“So I wanted to write a story where it was about me, where it is about Meghan.”
“Megan” is a story about Megh, who is the daughter and son of a young writer, who in the 1970s, was rejected for his first book, “A Christmas Story.”
“He didn’t want it,” Megh tells TIME about the rejection.
“He was not interested in the story.”
Megh and his father, Walter, grew up in rural Saskatchewan.
“My father and I never talked about politics,” Megg says.
In the early 1980s, Megg moved to London with his parents to get away from his mother.
He says he found a place to
