First off, that's a real book, and I own several copies so that I can pass them along to my lovely but hyper-driven friends when they are pushing themselves too the point of absurdity.
That said, by no means let it anyone misunderstand the quote I'm going to post next. I'm not accusing Amanda Palmer of being a slacker or an underachiever or anything with the words "lazy" and "ass" in the same phrase. I am totally, completely aware of her dedication and the constant motion of her whirling dervish craftsmanship. I'm sure if I had half her drive I'd be dead of a heart attack.
THAT said, to keep us creative types from driving ourselves mad, she has some wisdom we need to accept. I think it bears repeating here because sometimes we can only hear things when they come from another creative type.
i warn you against falling prey to the “but it’s not like i imagined it” syndrome.I could do with occasional reminding that the 'zine is a living Frankensteined thing, and will grow as it will in the way that it wants, no matter what the original idea in my head looked like. And I'll love it anyway, because Mary, the impenetrable wall, wide as the sea, it's fucking awesome working with you all.
