I still find myself feeling rather embarrassed to talk to people I don't yet know. At a place like a Comic Convention, this can be a problem. For those of you who don't know me that well in the analog world, I've been something resembling shy for as long as I can remember. It's never been a particularly helpful trait that I'm aware of, but it's always been who I am. As much as you shouldn't settle for a version of yourself that you don't like, you also need to learn to just accept the way you're wired. I can improve, but I won't become an extrovert by just wanting to be.
The point is, though, that at this convention we're going to, Daniel and I want to hand out business cards and say "hey, check out our comic." I mean, it's not like we're asking them to buy anything. It's free. I noticed Daniel doing the majority of the handing out yesterday while I just stood by and smiled. That's really no way to be a person who markets something they've made.
So, today's day two. It's a new chance to get better. Today, I'll try to take more initiative than I did yesterday. We've got all these business cards and they're not going to hand themselves out.
I'm proud of what we've made. I want people to see it. Today, it's going to happen.
As a PS, I'll also post the link here, in case you want to read the free comic. Click right here to try it out.
