When I was in High School, I made a one page comic about getting a valentine for a girl I liked, cause she was sad that no one got anything for her. So I went out and got her something. But then when I got back, I saw her making out with another boy down the hallway. I felt completely stupid, so I threw the gift away before anyone could see what I’ve done.
Then in college, I redrew the comic. (That’s the 5th page the file is dated Jan 23rd, 2003 actually.)
Then a few weeks ago, I looked over my old work, and felt, “time to fix this story.”
Basically, keep going. Don’t give up, be it work or romance. Just. Keep. Going. You never know where you’re going to find the answers.
