Whenever I start to work on a story idea and hash it out, I think "this is stupid, this doesn't make sense, why am I bother?" Is it best to scrap the idea and start over?

I get a lot of questions like this.

stupid.  I’m worried this is stupid.

 what is stupid?  well, any story can sound stupid.

" a 15-year-old gets bit by, I don’t know, a spider and gets spider powers"

" so these four turtles are teenagers, and mutants, and, uh,  let say ninjas. yeah,  turtles."

" there’s this guy who finds out that, like, the whole world is really a mental hologram that we dream that the robots, like, put in our brains so they can use us as batteries."

 what is stupid? that’s the wrong question to ask yourself

 ask yourself, and be honest:  would I buy this story if I saw it on the shelf? does this story mean anything to me? when I close my eyes can I see this world? do I hear these voices?

 if the answer is yes then I think it’s your obligation to pursue the story. don’t worry if it’s ‘stupid.’

 some of the best stories ever told can sound stupid. also some of the stupidest :-)

'there is a fine line between genius and stupid'- said a great musician

 but if you have a real point of view and a real reason for telling them. if the characters are believable and relatable…

Good answer BMB!

#ageofultron #comicbookreview: It was once said that #ultron would  one day evolve to the point that he would vanquish his foes and extinguish the human race…That day has finally come.

In a 10-issue crossover mini-series, writer /creator #brianmichaelbendis and artist/creator #bryanhitch bring us the end of the #marvel universe as we know it and share what our surviving heroes must do to reclaim the lives they once knew.

You can find Issue 6 of Age of Ultron (#AU) [and it’s back issues) in your local comic book retailers. I highly recommend it. (April 27, 2013) (at Dragon’s Keep)

This is about 12 days worth of receipts: Organized my receipts and the next thing I knew, I had this stack right in front of me. We really need to start going #green. Can’t emphasize that enough. (April 10, 2013) #environment (at Makati Medical Center)
