career points

anonymous asked:

You're a fucking loser with indy books barely making money. Who gives a shit what you think about making comics.

I received a bunch of messages in this vein, but yours didn’t have any political rants or racial epithets, so you get a response. Congrats.

When it comes to writing blog posts about making comics, I’ve always tried to make it clear that I am not a guru and don’t have anything close to all the answers.

Maybe that’s okay.

Survival bias is a state where people concentrate on only the most exemplary subjects and try to emulate them, not realizing that they’re the exception, not something typical. 

If you try to figure out how to be a “huge successful writer” by only looking at superstars and big moneymakers, you’re almost certainly going to fail. Don’t get me wrong, every creative person has tremendous hardships and rejections in their careers at different points, but the level of success a J.K. Rowling, Stephen King or Robert Kirkman now have is highly unusual and not something you can reproduce.

Maybe it’s a good idea to get a bit of advice from someone currently in the trenches, someone slowly building their name bit by bit who’s honest about what worked and what didn’t as they go along.

I’ll admit, there’s still survival bias involved in my career (many people pitch their ideas to Image, many more want to work at Marvel), but I try to temper my optimistic advice with reality wherever I can. It may not be as impressive, but it’s certainly more realistic.

I’ve known friends and colleagues who wanted their creative careers to appear like Athena, a perfect armored warrior-goddess instantly striking awe and fear into all around her, who sprung fully formed from the forehead of Zeus. (Seriously, that’s the legend. Mythology is fucking weird and awesome).

It doesn’t happen that way. It never will. The people I’ve known who acted that way about creativity quickly burned out on top of a pile of half-baked concepts and unfinished work. They wanted blinding inspiration and success or nothing and nothing was what they got.

If you make things you will struggle, screw up, and hate the choices you’ve made at times, but if you stick with it you will also learn and grow. Sometimes it won’t be about money. Other times that, and keeping a roof over your head, might be your only concern. Everyone’s journey is different. You can learn a bit from other people but in the end you have to go out there and do it yourself.

If you’re spending your time staring at my little bar charts shaking your fist about my success or lack thereof, you’re using way too much energy in an unproductive way. Go make stuff or go looking for Athena and see where it gets you.

Chaz Shiggy Bop Wolcott is a 29 year old man who has been dancing ever since he could walk! HOW COOL IS THAT?? He did his first show when he was around the age area of really young, and he went to do regional shows more into his adult life! He did so many regional shows, like 42nd Street, Meet me in St Louis, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and my personal favorite role of his, Legally Blonde! And so many more!
(Note- One of the regional productions of Cats he did, in which he played Pouncival and the understudy for Misto, was directed by none other than Jacob Brent! The Misto in the movie! Ahhhh!)

At some point after his graduation(really short time, I wanna say a day but that’s probably wrong), he was called and asked to audition for the national tour of CATS! THAT’S SO AMAAAAAZZZINNGGGG. And thus, he got his first touring experience as Mistoffelees in the first national tour of Cats! So exciting!

Some regional shows and dance classes later, a little show that some of you might know called NEWSIES!!!!!!! started on Broadway! With Jeremy Jordan! And Kara Lindsay! And Ryan Steele! Omg!

Chaz saw the show and LOOOOOOVED it! He even took his mom to see it once because he’s an A+ son like that.
Everyone he knew was texting him and saying he’d be perfect for it! Which he was!
So he auditioned! Sadly, it was not meant to be. But he kept trying!
And trying.
And trying.
And trying.
:(
7-8 Newsies auditions later, he got a call that would change his life forever. He got in as Buttons in the FIRST NATIONAL TOUR! Nobody could be more proud of him.

And thus, a new(sie) chapter of his life began!

There’s a saying that says that a cast is like your family, and the cast of the tour of Newsies was no exception! For over a year they toured together, and people did leave the tour, and people did join! But no matter what happened, they still remained a family, even if one wasn’t there anymore.

And as so many do, he stagedoored after almost every show to meet his fans! There’s a good bunch of broadway people that don’t do this, so it was amazing when he treated every single fan with love and respect, and didn’t treat them like he was above them or like they weren’t worth his time. Which every single fansie appreciates more than words can say. And it didn’t just stop at the stagedoor! Social media as well! He’d respond to fansies through Instagram and Twitter all the time, and even help them through their personal problems. Which is something that he doesn’t have to do, yet he does anyway. And I think that’s amazing.

But it wasn’t all fun and games. In June of 2016, something happened to his leg/foot in the middle of the show, so he had to call out, because every dancer must know their limit, and his was reached.

He took 3 months off, which was a sad experience for every fansie who wanted to meet him.
And honestly, for every dancer who loves what they do and couldn’t imagine life without dance, I can’t imagine it was a pleasant experience for him either.
(But he went to a Tony Awards party thing, was on the Tyler Mount vlog, went to a gay pride parade, and saw many shows, so hE’s aLrIgHt). And he still kept in touch with his fans on social media, so that was cool.

3 months later, he finished his physical therapy and was finally cleared to go back to the tour! Yay!

A little more than a week before his first show back, I had a friend who offered me an extra ticket she had to the show, so of course I had to take her up on the offer!

The ticket ended up being for his first show back, which made me more happy than words could say.

Without going into details about literally everything, he was astounding in it. Truly amazing. You wouldn’t even think he was injured in the first place. I screamed during his broom solo. Sue me.

I surprised him at the stagedoor cause he’s my guy and I love him. Not gonna go into details, but he was kind enough to take me backstage(which made me feel bad cause there were at least 100 more people at the stagedoor), which was an experience I’ll never forget.

Sooooo, he was back up and running on the tour again!

It was also announced that this amazing show would be filmed live and put in movie theaters across the globe, which only made everybody sob in delight. My friends and I were terrified because Chaz never actually said online that he would be in it, but I was lucky enough to confirm with him that he indeed would.

But, all good things must come to an end.
October 2nd of 2016, the tour ended.
All tears and tissues aside, Newsies on Tour was something that nobody will ever, ever forget. Which brings us back to…
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened! The cast and show had brought so much hope to fans everywhere, and nobody can thank them enough for that.

But Chaz’s career most certainly didn’t die. He became a member of the Broadway Collective, a company that travels across the US and gives jazz, tap, and vocal lessons to aspiring actors and actresses everywhere. I was lucky enough to be able to take a dance class from him, so I mean this when I say this, if you ever get the chance to take a dance class from him, please do. You’ll have the time of your life.

And there’s definitely more chances to do so! Ever since he finished the collective, he has been teaching non-stop at the Broadway Dance Center, which is $20 a class(Not bad at all!), and he has his own classes called Jazz with Chaz that he has scattered through the week! And that’s only $5!!! Amazing, right?

My favorite thing about his classes is that he still makes it an amazing experience even if you don’t see yourself as an amazing dancer. He finds a way to make it fun and energetic, without you having to be crazy flexible or know how to do a million tricks, which is something I think a lot of people can appreciate. I know I can. You always come out of his class feeling like you just did something amazing, which you did, even if you didn’t tilt your leg over your head. You feel like you did something amazing because you had //fun//. Each one of his classes gives you such an energetic high that you can’t keep a smile off your face, because of how supportive he is and how obvious it is that he wants you to succeed. And to me, having someone teach your class who doesn’t pick favorites and looks at you with a smile worth a thousand words when you even just do a single pirouette, is the best kind of support a dancer can have.

And to end this, Chaz is an amazing individual, and if you’re ever in any situation where you can meet him, take a class from him, or even just see him in a show, I can guarantee you that it’ll be something you’ll never regret or forget. He’s done so much for so many people, and treats everyone he meets with love and kindness, and that’s something everyone needs more of nowadays.

I never know how to end these things so

Love, Hannah 💙

My angels - Jensen Ackles x Reader

Title: My angels

Pairing: Jensen Ackles x Pregnant!Reader

Warnings: None

Summary: Imagine being one of Victoria Secret’s angels and are married to Jensen. Jared, Misha and the fans tease him about being jealous and he plays along but truth is he’s very proud of you and your career. However, at some point you stop doing shows and photoshoots, and all the teasing stops, making the fans wonder if Jensen was really jealous and you stopped for him. Only to later find out through a photo that the reason you stopped was because you’re pregnant with your first child.

“I’m- I’m guessing it’s a thing anymore, right?” Ellen chucked, looking at the three men as they all nodded their heads.

“Oh yeah, hunting monsters, saving people, teasing Jensen about (Y/n), the family business!” Jensen joked with a grin as Jared, Misha and Ellen laughed.

“They do love to point out you being jealous over your wife, right?” she asked and they all gave a subtle nod “She, for those of you who don’t know, although I don’t think there I a person who might not have seen some poster of her or even some catwalk, uhm she is a an angel of Victoria Secret’s, one of their top ones for very long actually.”

“She’s their best one!” Jared said proudly “But I’ll leave out any details about how good she looks in those underwear because Jensen’s sitting next to me.” he snickered and Misha grinned.

“Oh I dare you to go into detail Padalecki! Mind you, your wife is watching!” Jensen pointed out and Jared laughed more, going on with their small game of “jealous Jensen” that it’s been a while since they last played.

“I mean Misha could too! It’s not like he didn’t see it, or you can ask about a couple thousand other men, I’m sure she doesn’t go unnoticed in any of the shows!” he laughed, as Misha nodded his head in agreement, and Jensen grinned but he tried to fight his smile and put on a frown and almost jealous look.

“Excuse me? You two really seem to be paying attention to her in the shows, aren’t ya?”

Snow & Ashes by natiwati, Mature, 5.4k (WIP)
They stand in silence, and Yuuri isn’t brave enough to ask him for his name, strike up any form of conversation. They gaze at the moon above together, two waves pulled by its astounding gravity. And when he finally gleans the courage to part his lips and suck in a breath to inquire, the man steps on his cigarette, extinguishing it, and leaves. Yuuri takes another drag, pretending not to feel so disappointed.

Yakov signed a contract with the JP Mafia without Viktor’s consent, to get him a consigliere who would maybe, make up for what Viktor lacks. Oh boy, Viktor is pissed, he’s fuming.

Yuuri has always known that he was different, he was fairly sure that being born with the ability to see everyone’s red strings of fate, tying soulmates together, wasn’t normal. Stranger than this is the realisation that his string extends past the sky.


Thank you for all your recs! ₍₍ (̨̡ ‾᷄♡‾᷅ )̧̢ ₎₎

The amazing “YOI Fan Rec Friday” banner was created by @omgkatsudonplease! I love them a lot, check out their blog!

what i say: IM SCREAMING

what i mean: i want an f(x) comeback. i love f(x). f(x) doesn’t deserve this. talent doesn’t deserve this. i miss seeing their happy faces together. i miss them dancing and bickering as a group. amber could probably write and produce stuff for herself and f(x) that could last them their entire career at this point. she also has a fidget spinner. luna’s probably posing with shampoo bottles in some forest right now instead of blessing us with vocals that make her one of the top kpop vocalists. vic is stuck on some never ending red carpet in china serving looks when she could be with her kids and still serving looks. krystal’s off promoting Bride of The Water God when she could be promoting as the princess we know her to be on stage. i’m also tired of lurking on their SNS for every little interaction they may have. i miss talent. i miss f(x)

This is why I hate Taylor Swift
This girl is the worst type of bully there is she’s the type where she literally makes fun and talk shit and just does horrible stuff to people but so many people like her So when you try to tell people why you don’t like her they swear you’re just being a hater, you’re being mean for no reason, or you’re being a bitch
But when in reality she’s just a horrible person, she acts like this little princess in front of people but behind closed doors she’s the nastiest bitch ever
And no matter how much proof you have exposing her dude to the fact so many people like her they won’t listen to or believe you
And then when you finally called her out she plays this innocent little white girl
She did it to Nicki Minaj when she said “why are we trying to pit women against each other” and everybody chose her side
She did it to Kanye even after a video came out of her getting caught lying saying she didn’t know about the line he wrote in his song and people still took her side she’s literally trying to do it now by using Kim and Kanye’s beef with her to spin it and make her look like the victim when she’s far from it
She did it to Calvin Harris she literally wrote a song about trashing his relationship with her and then when he made a tweet shading her everyone jump down his throat talking about how he’s a horrible person when literally Calvin Harris does not get in drama ever
Literally y'alls Wonderboy Harry Styles had a whole album written about him which was filled with horrible stuff and he even took the high road and just brushed it off yet people still took her side

And y'all know good and well if this was any other celebrity y'all would have ended their career by now POINT! BLANK! PERIOD!

So @badacts and I came up with this ridiculous spy au and idk lads here’s a preview of the fic for it I’m working on, hopefully it’ll keep you warm whilst I’m crying over finals (cw: graphic depictions of violence - stay safe kids!)

Anyway hope you enjoy.

A Note on Life Tips

If getting up at the crack of dawn just isn’t fathomable for you, I promise you’re not alone and that what works for others won’t always work for you. Getting sleep is more important for your physical and mental health than seeing the fucking sunrise. There are other beautiful parts of nature for you to see whenever you wake up.

If you hate yoga, don’t do it. There are plenty of other ways to get the exercise you need. Do something you enjoy.

If you hate kale smoothies, dump that shit out and make a smoothie you like. Kale isn’t the be all end all of health.

If college ain’t for you it just ain’t for you babydoll. Do something you absolutely love. If it isn’t college then don’t go. It’s a fucking hell hole capitalist money trap.

If you love love college then bitch go!! If you just wanna go to learn then do it. If your dream job requires a degree then go. College is an amazing, life altering experience necessary for many careers.

My point is that while life tips are amazing, find what works for you. Don’t try to push yourself too hard to follow something that just isn’t for you. That defeats the whole purpose of life tips.

💖 Treat yourself right hoe 💖

grace-of-hearts replied to your photo:YOI Future!Verse ABO AU - 4 Koma SMACK! The kids…

Yurio’s face in the first panel is great. He wants to know what to do to fix this but he’s never handled friendships well initially himself. And he’s notably younger than Yuuri and Victor, so he probably feels a little out of his depth here.

whoo I caught a reply! :’D

NOP Yurio’s never handled friendships well minus Beka, but tbh they’re ALL out of their depth. People where scared of Yurio, Victor didn’t particularly care to befriend others (who mostly approached him for superficial reasons anyway), and Yuuri was ignored or bullied as a kid (outside of Yuuko).

Should also note that the three of them have VERY different attitudes approaching parenthood too. For Yuuri, the idea of a family (if not necessarily specifically kids) and being surrounded by loved ones is comforting, and not something he’d ever thought he could have until recently. In the haze of uncertainty that is life and a career after his retirement, he sees it as one of the only clear and tangible goals that he can accomplish, and share with his mates too.

Yurio is forever bitter about the absence of his parents from his own childhood, and has always specifically dreamed of having kids so that he could give them what he didn’t have. He’d never trade his grandfather for parents, but it’s also an experience he’s always craved, even if he’s on the parenting side. In addition, while the others are in no rush, Yurio wants kids earlier rather than later because he desperately wants his grandfather to be a part of that family vision, and he knows realistically that he doesn’t have that much time left. If he were alone, heck if it were just him and his mate Yurio’d think it irresponsible and wait until he has the confidence and experience to support them all, but given the much more extensive support system of their poly relationship and Victor and Yuuri’s seniority, he feels it could really work even with him being so young.

Victor probably hasn’t thought nearly as deeply about parenthood as he should have, but he likes surprising even himself and is used to making spontaneous decisions. While having kids is definitely something even he wouldn’t do on just a whim, when the other two bring it up, he decides more or less on the spot that it’s a wonderful idea and something he really wants too. Any additional form of love he can have with Yuuri, he’ll embrace with his whole life.

Is it a Birthmark on Benji's face? honestly as someone who has a birthmark all over half the side of their body, it means so much;; i don't see many sims with birthmarks <3

Omgg first of all hellooo and thank you for asking about himss ;-;; 

But yes he doesss have a birthmark now. While I was creating his SL appearance I played around with different features to make his avatar more unique I guess. I thought a birthmark covering the complete side of his cheek would look pretty cool and it was that simple as me giving it to him. It exceeded my expectations and IMO I think it compliments his character quite well so I made sure to do the same for him in TS3. My only regret is not giving it to him sooner ;-;;;

And dzfkjhsdgkj that’s so special that you have one! I’ll always love odd genetic quirks and things of that nature because it personalizes who you are. Whether it’s birthmarks, stretchmarks, freckles, scars, tattoos, etc.. I try to make sure I give all my chars/sims realistic details which is why I spend an unhealthy amount of time working on their skins.
