From Seth Godin:
This is the huge difference between art and just about everything else we do in life. In all the other parts of our lives, the deal is "If you do this, you will get that." In the world of art, the deal is "Well, other people have done something sort of like what you're hoping to do, and sometimes, but certainly not always, it works out for them. You'll have to do it to find out."
It's called Art and the Supermassive Pinball Machine. I'll be working on it for at least the next 9 months, and releasing chapters bit by bit.
A couple fantastic illustrators are helping me tackle the huge volume of work I'm up against.
