Comic-Con 2017, T-Minus 5 Days / by Craig Kerbrat

Again, it's been too long since I've updated this. But it's almost Comic-Con time again, so I'm bringing it back.

It's been a hectic month or so in the life of thenoblehero, but things are stable enough for me to focus on Comic-Con and get really really ridiculously excited about it.

Whenever I go to Comic-Con I can't help but feel inspired by all of the creativity going on around me. Whether it's all of the great content being shown off at the booths and panels, or the awesome art being sold, the great stories being told, or the amazing cosplay that people put so much work into. It's all so amazing and it reminds me that I want to put something out there too. 

I wish I could figure out what my "thing" is. Maybe it's writing something awesome. A comic series, or a novel, or short stories. Maybe I should be telling other people's stories. Or maybe it's talking about the things I love on my own YouTube channel or podcast. I just know I want to be doing something creative. 

I was about to say that I just don't know what it is yet. But that's not the reason I haven't done it yet. It's because I haven't put in the work yet. And I haven't managed to get over my fear yet. Fear often stops my from doing things. Fear of failure. Fear of being made fun of. Fear of being ignored, or disliked. Fear of the unknown.

I want to do great things. So I should just do them. And not think so much about what might go wrong. Just have fun with it. 

Maybe that will be my focus this year at Comic-Con. Really take in the creative energy and use it to do something special. 'Cause I'd really like to go to Comic-Con with something to show people someday, so I can be a real part of the magic. 

That's the dream.
