Creative industries are rife with survivorship bias.

Trying to make a living as a creator is a risky proposition. Taking on student loans is a massive gamble. Quitting your job to pursue creating can be disastrous.

Think carefully before you leap without a safety net.

THERE IS NO SHAME IN WORKING A "NORMAL" JOB TO SUPPORT YOURSELF.

It's fine, you're every bit the same amount of a "real" creator as the person who makes their money from creating.

Money does not legitimize you as a creator.

Mastodon feels like early twitter. We're all tooting about our days and lunches and lives with no cares, celebrities aren't here yet, there's the all-consuming dark shadow hanging over us threatening to plunge us into the tyranny of capitalism, The apps always a little weird.

This is my current #WIP. Been watching a lot of #TwinPeaks and #Riverdale and other small-town, teens-in-high-school supernatural-themed shows lately for inspiration for my current project, GALE...which is basically that, but more emphasis on the horror and dread.
