"The fruit ripens slowly but fallssuddenly" - ancient Indian proverb
Half of that is very good advice. The other half is harmless. Not bad.
I relate pretty strongly to the idea that the cost of not trying is greater than the cost of failure. I may never be successful enough to support myself entirely with my own comics, or get to work on my dream movie project or what have you, but I don't intend to live with the regret of not trying. I also agree that you can't produce something creative if all you're trying to do is cater to a market or make money. Anything good has it's own intrinsic value which people either respond to or they don't. I think my biggest handicap right now is that I don't have the confidence to walk into Pixar or wherever and demand a job. At some things, I know I'm good, but I still have weak areas that I need to identify and improve. The key is to do that without simply stealing someone else's bag of tricks. Slowly but surely...
