Helping People is Part of the Magic

Complicated Reality began a month before I started making art, as a place to collect various bits of writing I'd composed in internet forums over the last decade. Spending time sharing wisdom with people who need it is a critical part of my creative process, and the advice that resonates with a lot of people gets turned into a guide here.
