I figured out a lot of stuff over the last few days.
My grandpa died on Thrusday, so when that happens I thinkg
about stuff. Here's what I came up with:
I want to be somewhere. I want to experience it for real.
I don’t just want to see that big tower thing in Seattle, I
want to live in Seattle—see what it’s like to live in a
place where it rains 9 months out of the year. I don’t
want to go to a Broadway play, I want to live in New York—
see what it’s like to live with that many people.
A lot of people just don't get it. They just want
to live here and get fat and have kids and grow old and
die. And while that is a nice dream and all, it just isn’t
enough for me. I want to live in the places people
vacation in. I want to feel what it’s like to LIVE.
I dunno. It’s hard to explain.
Here’s my plan though. See if you like it:
1. Finish school—1 year
2. Go to internship—1 year
i. while doing these finish a Jed outline
ii. while doing these get hired as an inker or publish
3. Start teaching—4 years
i. Get Jed done in simple form from start to finish
4. Publish Jed—20-35 years
The only problem with this plan is that I’m not sure if I
want to spend the rest of my life working on a comic book.
