To tip the odds just a little in your favour you will perhaps need to look at yourself and your work in a very different way. This exercise might offend, annoy or disturb you. Whether or not you are prepared to undergo this process depends upon your desire, your need to be published. If your need to be seen or heard outweighs all other consideration then you will get what you want. If not, then the road that you have chosen to walk is going to hurt even more than it needs to. The days when talent, originality and mere genius automatically led to publication are long gone--such traits can even be a disadvantage in a world where everything must be "the same, but different." Novelty is risky, and there are simply too many authors chasing too few publishers for anyone to be able to slip the likes of a "Moby Dick" or "Tom Jones" past the accountants. That's sad, but with very few exceptions that's how it is. Literary output is just a product, and a play, poem, book or film is going to be judged as much by its commercial worth as anything else.
