B&N Week 168: Are You Ready For Some Advice?


Tuesday! We’ve got a warming trend in Tucson. It’s hitting the high 70s to low 80s on a more consistent basis, which means it’s going to be blazing hot in a couple of weeks. Thus, the circle will start again. Not looking forward to it.

This week’s question is another deceptively simple one. Here it is: are you ready for some advice?

Advice comes in many forms. You come here, week after week, looking for advice on how to do things that pertain to creating comics. There’s advice from family and friends, there’s advice from gurus, there’s advice from people who are just wanting to help.

There’s good advice, there’s bad advice, and there’s the advice that’s good but you don’t want to hear. Sometimes, that’s the best advice for you, but you have to be ready for it. But are you?

Bad advice: the daily horoscope you find in the newspaper. It’s so generic that it’s almost useless. It can be amusing to read, but like a fortune cookie, they’re virtually useless. [Fortune cookies that we know and love originated in the US. A bit of “wisdom”, along with some lottery numbers on the back of them, and those numbers have been winners on occasion. While I was in the Marines, one of my bosses taught me that the “fortunes” became even better if you added “with sex” to the end of the wisdom. Try it.]
