I'm a writer, or trying to be one, anyway. I was just wondering if you ever had moments of crippling doubt that made you want to give up, and if so, how did you get past them?
About every 3rd question I get is a variation on this. How do I get past self doubt in order to create the work I envision myself creating?
There is no answer to this question.
Keep trying until you can’t, then keep trying some more, then maybe take a short snack break, then keep trying some more.
We might not ever get there but we have to keep trying.
That’s the lesson at the end of Scott Pilgrim cause it’s all I knew to tell you.
What advice do you have for aspiring comic authors/artists? How do you pace yourself efficiently, produce consistent work, and convey the story coherently?
1. be pretty good
3. pay attention
4. work hard
5. keep getting better
