I started by doing a little funny story, and then I started going to open mics. I realized I had a lot of work to do – you have to get over the stage fright and get your stage presence up. It took me some time, but I finally feel that I’m at a point where I feel comfortable on stage and giving my point of view.
You need virtual reality to understand high level science or high level math. It’s very helpful to explain third and fourth dimensional things that people are constantly addressing in quantum physics. But, as soon as you’re creating an avatar, and you can live and you can start to feel sensations on VR, that has gone too far.
You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.
