The Zen of Failure sounds like the state that occurs when I’m pitching projects. There’s a certain flow state that comes from copying and pasting pitch documents into various forms and formats to send to people who may or may not respond, and might not even look at them. It creates a certain feeling of acceptance that this action probably will not matter, but it must be taken or it definitely won’t matter. It’s related to the way rejection loses its sting when it happens frequently. Just pitching to literary agents, I’ve been rejected or ignored over 100 times now. Rejection isn’t even really a feeling anymore, it’s just a thing that happens which indicates I have to keep pitching things.
Naturally, the Patreon preview for this strip was mostly about… lettering? Yes, of course.
Barrie Deatcher is Employee of the Week, and has been able to download my video game, Space Jerks as a result! You can, too! Patreon is my predictable source of income, and I would very much like it to grow to the point where I can do things like make a video game and not be haunted by the thought that I’m wasting my time because nobody will support it!
