"I think I can write comics 'coz I've got a lot of followers and people tell me that I'm pretty funny and that I write interesting stuff on my Twitter all the time!"
Uhm... yeah. I heard that ludicrous statement from someone I just met who was trying to convince me that they can write professional comic books. And to me, that makes sense. I mean, of course you've got the writing chops that naturally transfers into a successful comic book writing career because you're *SO* entertaining and articulated on a social service that offers up your grammatical genius in 140 characters or less! So, OF COURSE you can do this comic book sh*t for a living! What're you waiting for? No, seriously. C'mon down and claim your Eisner for writing now, you arrogant prick. It really is that easy to write good comic books.
I mean, there's plenty of times when I thought, "What's the big deal with engineers, all that math, and the space shuttle!? I f*ckin' make spaceships all the gaddamn time with my Legos, and sh*t!"
Oh, and speaking of TWITTER - Jon tells me that I apparently have an account. And if the stats are right, I opened it a long time ago and haven't posted onto it in 100+ weeks. What's even more mind-boggling is that it already had 40 followers built in? AWESOME! Who are you people?! But whatever - now that I have it, get ready; because I am going to write short spurts of something funny and interesting, and soon I can be a rocket scientist too!
