Followup Thought on Comics and Stuff Generally

...great title, huh?

Anyway, as I was mulling around with the issue of "What kind of comic would I want to do?" it occurred to me that part of the problem is the same thing I was getting at about lacking in enthusiasm-- specifically, I have in the past always tried to write the book I wanted to read, or draw the comic I wanted to see... but lately my give-a-damn is so broken that I can't think of what it is that would fulfill that criteria. It's like there's no story, comic, or piece of art that moves me so much, that it would be worth all the fighting and struggle to get it created.

This is not a good place for a creator to be. :P Passion is the fuel that makes story creation happen, 'cos goodness knows it ain't the money. So the big question becomes, how can I get back to that place where I'm crazy excited for things again? The weekend before last proved that it can happen, the tricky part is finding a way to get myself there, and keep myself there.

On the other hand, recognizing that this is the issue, hopefully will at least point me in the right direction. Knowing is half the battle, right Joe?
