Yeah, just fail until you stop failing.
A few years ago a friend called me and said, “hey, I know you want to do this comic book thing as bad as I do. Let’s stop bullshitting and get it done.”
Since that time, we’ve lost a billion dollars and had sand kicked in our faces daily. At each step, we’ve failed.
But we’ve typically only failed once per step. And in that way, progress was made.
Starting from well outside feels embarrassing and can be demoralizing if you allow it. But if you’re constantly working, you don’t have time to feel that sting.
We’ve got two series coming in 2015, two graphic novels, and possibly some other shit depending on the whims of people who don’t check their emails.
It’s going to be another few years of failing before we reach some of our goals. But what better use of time is there in life?
My advice to you is to create a ton of content, hustle and suck dick to get people to look at that content, then push that content to your audience when you’ve shotgunned enough jizz that someone publishes you.
Fail at every turn, but take notes.
I would love to be a published writer but am currently working towards a god damned associates degree and have no inside knowledge on the biz. Needless to say I'm not anywhere close to that. Any word of advice on how to get into a scene you know nothing about, or know any authority figures looking to publish early American modernist styled shit?
