  1. Its perfectly reasonable, as an independent artist, to break the one week release schedule. There's too many creators that burn themselves out like that, trying to meet arbitrary expectations. Engaging with fan communities seems more effective at retaining audiences than keeping up with rigid release schedules, so its unfortunate that this is still standard practice.

  3. I agree with efaardvark. A good amount of research should always go into what made content fail or fall short of a desired outcome. That way you can avoid similar mistakes and have the necessary creative management over your work that isn't oblivious to them either. There's also work that might not meet standard quality but have so many restorative elements to build upon. Like the comment above stated, there are people giving themselves critical experience in their field by producing bad work and learning from it. If your examination of these failures is from an outside perspective of avoidances than the knowledge gained in this might be a bit superficial. This may actually hinder your creative abilities to a good degree, so it's something to definitely be carful of. The best way to sort your analysis is comparing your work against those that are limited to similar genres/themes. That way you narrow how much material you can constructively absorb. It can also teach you where to go when you find yourself in a rut that perfectionists often face. Allowing yourself to correct internal mistakes by accepting that external consumption isn't a fault. There's also subjectivity in what creative individuals find good or bad in a particular skillset. What media they consume doesn't exempt them from blunders and when they happen it can shut a creator down. Something I've learned in school was that so many people look upon classical art and strive to be like Michelangelo or da Vinci. They have this idea that the title Artist is exclusive to these greats. Because of this, many artists will never find their own style and will instead settle on the notion that they're nothing like Michelangelo and therefore not an artist. This rings true across a lot of talents and skillsets—the inspirations or personalities that are looked up to. Another thing to consider is that the people who inspire others with their phenomenal work have also had failures and times of contemplation. I've spoken to a TON of well celebrated artists that had faced harsh criticism, periods of work that wasn't quite optimal and even a metamorphosis into an entirely new genre or art style. All of which took time, discovery, and research into what made certain pieces so disliked. Learn from both and really expand your insight!

  4. I never thought it was going to be over in just a few months , not with the number of "community transmission" cases and the lack of effective testing early on. I was figuring closer to a year, though maybe with something of a lull during the warmer months. Usually it seems they get a vaccine for this year's variant of the flu in time for next year's flu season. That's kind of what I've been expecting for this one, but even that assumes it is a "well-behaved" virus that doesn't come up with any sneaky tricks. Especially for the high-risk groups this isn't going to really be over until they get a working vaccine produced and distributed.
