Every artist thinks about quitting at some point. When you are just starting out and there’s little or no attention being paid to your work, it can seem like an exercise in futility to keep making comics. Why spend hours of your life on something nobody cares about?
At this point, quitting seems like the best idea. You get your life back and you no longer have to deal with the frustration of pouring your heart and soul out with nobody being interested.
But what if you’re quitting too early. What if the next update, or an update next month, is what catches the attention of the public and finally gets you the audience you deserve? You’ll have missed out on everything you were hoping for because you quit too early.
So when is the right time to quit? When you’ve been going for 6 weeks and nothing is coming together? When you’ve been working for six months and the only page views are from your Mother? How about when you’ve been updating for 6 years and you still only get 10 views a day? Or 100? Or 1000?
We’ll be discussing all this and more when we record on Thursday, and we’d like to hear your views. Leave us a comment here, on Twitter or on Facebook and we’ll make your views heard on the show.
