hello, let us speak of
@chuckwendig All this works for music too. I've seen lots of people wondering if they have the right/enough formal education, the right music theory perspective.
I try to collect examples of people doing great work at all levels of knowledge to reassure them because I've been on both sides of it ("All I do is bang some chord progressions together and vomit eighth and quarter notes on them...").
@chuckwendig I have massive impostor syndrome with almost everything I do :/ I guess I struggle to feel the "illicit entry" joy of it, because most of the circles I feel an imposter in involve struggling small academics/game devs/writers, so I both feel I can't compare my work to theirs and feel that it'd be unfair if I DID get in alongside people who devote their lives to things better & probably need the recognition & money more than I do.
