Stop revving your engines, and just go somewhere…

OK this is a little bit of a rant for a friend of mine who is very talented, but sometimes can be a really assclown to execution of something. Being a PDF publisher for so long I always get questions from people who want to get into the RPG industry. The question I get the MOST often is, “How do I start?” My answer is “Stop revving your engines, and just go somewhere”. Too often people TALK about wanting to be the industry and don’t do any actually work. Too many people do that. What you NEED to do to be successful as a RPG publisher is actually do the work AND put something out for sale. That is it. Just put your nose to the grind stone and just do it. Stop with the bullshit reasons why you can’t, and just do it. But what of you don’t know how to do it? Then figure it out. It not rocket science. Do what you think is best and try it. If it doesn’t work figure out what you did wrong and don’t do it again. Look the only difference between Monte Cook and you is Monte is motivated to work. That is it. Just motivate yourself and do it. So are you motivated, then you are half way there. Now come the sweat and hard work. Talk to you later…
