Another great edition of Bolts and Nuts! There's actually some deep stuff here. Both the concept of "there's always writers worse than you and writers better than you" and of "the power of no" are big ideas that have floated around scattershot in my brain before, but here you articulate them into clear and concise points. And I think they stand as two of the most important pieces of philosophy you've offered in these columns.
The best editions of Bolts & Nuts for me have been the ones where you finish feeling energised, excited, and eager to go write some comics. And this was one of those columns.
