"A freelance life, a life in the arts, is sometimes like putting messages in bottles, on desert island, and hoping that someone will find one of your bottles and open it and read it, and put something in a bottle that will wash its way back to you: appreciation, or a commission, or money, or love. And you have to accept that you may put out a hundred things for every bottle that winds up coming back." - Neil Gaiman, "Make Good Art"  
Started this a back when he gave the speech because the comparison felt so true. Anyways… recently found the file and finished it up.
Still true.
