Hey Guys and Girls,
A lot of you know me around here, been a member for a few years and have been writing my comics ever since.
There are two important sources of support in my comic writing.
One is my amazing wife, who I honestly could not do without…I am a very lucky man and I will freely admit I am punching waaaaaay above my weight class with her.
The other is this place.
The members of this forum have been so great over the years, not just buying my comics (which I do appreciate), but helping me during those early years.
Giving me positive feedback in those early days, encouraging me because they thought I might have a talent for writing comics, but most importantly giving me the confidence to carry on.
Confidence, is a funny thing.
It can take a life time to build but can be lost in seconds.
That is the reason for this thread.
I know we are all incredibly excited to find out who has made it into the MillarWorld annual next year.
But the sad truth is, a lot of us wont make it. (I include myself in this…i know there are better writers than myself out there. FACT)
Mr Millar has had to sift through 1,200 or so scripts and countless pages of art work, which is no small feat…and only 13 people are gonna get picked.
Not getting selected this year might knock your confidence, but it shouldn’t.
Winning a place in the annual would be an amazing thing, but if you don’t, it is not the end of the world.
It is not because we are bad writers or bad artists, it just means we weren’t right THIS time.
You have achieved something wonderful, you have either written a script or produced a number of fantastic sequential pages of comic art!
You should be proud of yourselves!
That is a HUGE step in the right direction.
You have gone from a talker to a doer…DO NOT LOSE THAT MOTIVATION!
Those of us on this board will always help you and encourage you!
NOW go out and make your own comics!
THAT’S AN ORDER!
