Fetal Squirrel Webcomic Launch
Jan 2, 2017
I hope this message finds you in a hopeful spirit.
FetalSquirrel.com I am writing to you today to let you know that I have launched my Fetal Squirrel webcomic. You can click here or type http://fetalsquirrel.com into your web browser to see it.
I'm excited. I have worked really hard on this. Have you read the War of Art by Steven Pressfield? It's a book about overcoming the resistance to putting in the hard work and time required to succeed at art. I read it, and it kicked me in the ass and I made it a goal to launch this webcomic.
Today, I launched it.
Is this a victory? No. This is me pulling the tissue paper out of the toe of a conspicuously clean hiking boot and touching down on a dusty mountain trail. Promises of panoramic vistas and pine-scented winds lie ahead. Inevitable brushes with rattlesnakes, blisters, and rock-slides do too.
I hope you visit the site today. If you do, you will see only one comic — #1. If you come back next Monday, you will see #2. New comics will appear every Monday for the foreseeable future.
Your feedback is wanted/welcomed/requested. Ask me questions. I will respond. I'm curious to see where the story goes and what resonates with you.
Fetal Squirrel and Mr. Snowman start their adventure with a simple question: How does one find happiness? This is a question that I am starting to answer for myself.
I have the following quote by Steven Pressfield tacked up on the wall next to my desk:
“We must do our work for its own sake, not for fortune or attention or applause.”
So with that, I am making the following promises to myself:
I will do my best. I will give it my heart. I will be vulnerable. I will publish and publish and publish.
Only I will know if I do all those things, except for the publishing part. Here goes nothing.
I hope you like it. I do. Go take a look.
Love to you,
