“Your opinion is in your WORK. Tell stories. Tweet your work not your snark and complaining.” —Nelson Blake II’s advice to aspiring comic book creators.
On the one hand, I agree very much with Blake’s opinion that it is better to create than to aspire. At the end of the day, the only thing that gets the work done is doing the work. On the other hand, I find some of his statements dismissive of legitimate criticism. Just as one does not have to be a creator to critique, creative work is not the only valid way to render an opinion on something. Nevertheless, Blake’s advice is definitely worth a read.
