A few links for a sunday morning:
I have often sat quietly considering the great creative minds throughout history. If I, as a man who considers himself creative, am to ever reach the heights of both fame and noteriety as a writer of fiction, the I must look to those who have tread this lonely path for inspiration and advice.
The one shining characteristic highly creative people share is vice. Or more specifically, seven vices. I unfortunately don’t drink, smoke, eat, fuck, spend, gamble, or dress well enough. I knew the reason why I haven’t sold a manuscript was because I wasn’t a big enough fuck up… I can fix that.
I have read/collected comics for most of my life. Funny that I have never considered writing them. I firmly believe that comics are great literature. Disagree if you will, but comics are the last remaining repository for cultural myth and legend. Lately I have been visiting Marvel’s Digital Comics and eating up all I can while it lasts.
