Putting together the wrong team will cost you thousands of dollars, months of delays and will funk your vibe. What does all this mean. Don't you dare, for one moment, get ahead of yourself.
Please, learn from my mistakes. If you jump to conclusions, if you don't do your due diligence and if you get overly excited; your are setting yourself and your project up for certain disaster.
I cannot stress enough how forcing a square peg into a circular whole can derail your dreams of the next big thing.
A lot of this will come from experience and self reflection, but more often than not, if you are working with amateur or semi-professional talent, there are many road bumps you can avoid by heeding my advice.
No matter what world you're coming from, be it writer, artist, editor, inker, or colorist, please be certain that your temperament is a good fit with your collaborative partners. If you say the wrong thing to your cohorts you are likely to send your project spiraling into the abyss of unfinished, unpublished work. And that's just one of the potential snafu's of getting your independent comic book off the ground, especially if you are talking about more than a single issue. Trust that you have to vibe well with your team before even stepping foot in the creative arena.
