The strategy is to have a practice, and what it means to have a practice is to regularly and reliably do the work in a habitual way.
The notion that I do my work here, now, like this, even when I do not feel like it, and especially when I do not feel like it, is very important. Because lots and lots of people are creative when they feel like it, but you are only going to become a professional if you do it when you don’t feel like it. And that emotional waiver is why this is your work and not your hobby.
Free Comic Book Day is today! Head over to your local comic shop to pick up some free comics (a list of participating retailers can be found here).
I won’t be on costume duty this year, but I will be trekking around to some of my favorite comic shops in Boston in my Robin dress - be sure to say hi if you spot me :)
one of my favorite animated movies
So cute so cute
I love this movie so much
“In New York City, the average yearly salary for fast food workers is $11,000, which isn’t nearly enough to survive in a city with steadily increasing rents and a high cost of living. Fast Food Forward estimates that $11,000 is only 25% of the sum required to live in New York City. For tipped workers, the federal minimum wage is just $2.13. Workers are expected to make up the difference between that sum and $7.25 in tips, a difficult proposition that leaves many workers severely underpaid.”
