Webcomics pioneer Brad Guigar has been doing a daily comic strip since February 2000. Tens of thousands read Evil Inc every day on the Web and in newspapers. He has published over a dozen printed collections of his work, and he has been nominated for an Eisner award — the top honor in the comics industry. And he does it without a syndicate. Without a publisher. And without an editor.

Guigar runs the daily tutorial-and-advice Web site for independent cartoonists, Webcomics.com, and is the author of three books about the process of cartooning and self-publishing. He is the author of "The Everything Cartooning Book." He co-wrote the seminal "How To Make Webcomics Book," (Amazon) and he wrote its sequel, "The Webcomics Handbook" (Amazon)

When it comes right down to it, writer's block is all about confidence.

Let's face it. Ideas are cheap. You get ideas all day long. And each one is just as dumb as the next. They're all derivative and simplistic and trite.

What makes the difference is what you, as a writer, do with that idea — in other words, the execution of that idea. That makes great art.

So, when I find myself blocked, I stop looking for ideas.

I start looking for the reasons I lack the confidence to work on the ideas that I already have.

Once I work through those issues, I put my pencil on the surface of the paper and start pushing.(less)
Brad Guigar It's the same as my advice for aspiring cartoonists: It's impossible to get worse at something you do every day.

Fantastic follow-up to a very strong beginning. The amount of world-building that Butcher puts into the Dresden universe is mind-boggling!

My friends had been after me for years to read these books, and I finally started with this one (the first of the series). I couldn't put it down. I'm so happy I finally took their advice!
