A long time coming but here it is: comics about self-affirmation and belief in your true core’s strength. The answer was right there all along.
So far this has been a good week! My friend the Owl sent me a job posting for a website looking for someone to blog about non superhero graphic novels. This is my thing! I have a deep background and many ideas to share on this subject, and I am professionally trained to write and to deconstruct texts. Yet, knowing about the process of reading open calls for submission triggers my fear of rejection. What if, despite my knowledge that I am perfect for a job, I fail? What does this say about my belief in my abilities, if I cannot even escape the slush pile? This is the sort of thing that tears me up and prevents me from putting forth the effort.
But I put forth the effort. And I made the cut. My little essays are going up as guest posts and if everything works out I will probably get my own column. To write about non superhero graphic novels. Which is a thing I would be doing anyway.
Another fun thing that just happened was the advent of my 100th follower on this blog. Hello! Everything’s coming up Dragon!
“That stupid snake,” said Owl. “I must remember that. And little Mowgli. Mowgli? So precious. Take Mowgli often to the park. And the drawing table. You won’t be sorry.”
