It's really good stuff, Bobby.  But welcome to the world of art.  Nothing is ever quite good enough, and the more obscure a writer is, the more everything has to be PERFECT.

Thanks very much! And yeah I really can't blame them either. They've probably got a lot riding on these books and shouldn't settle for something they don't actually like. I wish them well in their pursuit of perfection w/ someone else!


Fucking hell that sounds head wrecking.

It is indeed! Neil Gaiman has a great bit about how it seemed like he got punished every time he did stuff just for the money. Not a bad lesson for me to learn maybe.


After the MSY/tales from Fat Ernie's, it took me three years to even THINK about trying another project that involved more than me.

I have the same problem with artists that Bobby has with writers.

Yeah it occurs to me that it might be ridiculous to still be dealing w/ publishers & middlemen in the current paradigm.

The pay is negligible anyway, I might as well put my time and energy back into making and distributing my own stuff.

No shit.  I'm sitting on 3 stories for graphic novels, complete, and I've just finally given up.

In all honesty if I could quit I absolutely would, but that doesn't seem possible for me, so I just try to enjoy the compulsion as best as I can
