I'm working on the homework, I swear!
But first, thanks for this week's column, Lee. I hope everyone reads it.
And then reads it again.
And THEN, reads it AGAIN.
I'm quite sure you peruse the Help Wanted ads over at Digital Webbing, and you automatically shake your head at the ads with the "creators" who haven't created a thing, but who have a GREAT concept that you get the privilege of working on FOR FREE, because it's going to make a fa-billion dollars once it gets adapted into a movie.
Yeah, I shake my head at it, too.
I think that most "creators" are too busy looking extremely ahead to "fame and riches" instead of what they need to do in order to get their comic produced. Hollywood is a siren, and most don't even have a boat that can be smashed on the rocks.
Knowing what you want is fine, but most "creators" can't hear the music, let alone know the steps of the dance that needs to be done in order to get a comic made, published, sold, and into the hands of the public.
Yes, I'm a little frustrated at it. They don't know, and they seemingly don't want to know, even when there is a TON of information available in books and on the 'net. Most of this information wasn't available ten or twelve years ago, but now you can almost trip over it.
As the man said, know what you want, folks.
But know how to create it, as well.
And Lee, your lawyer's name was more than worth the price of admission here. Thanks.
