Compliments are very stingily granted in our society so the occasional compliment is usually well-deserved and can tell you what your personal strength(s) is/are. “You write good dialogue”. So I wrote a lot of dialogue. “Your work actually makes me laugh” so I wrote humour wherever possible. “Your writing makes me think about things I wouldn’t otherwise think about” so I started writing about thought-filled subjects. On a percentage basis writing material that makes people think will make about 2% of the population absolutely adore you and 98% of the population (no hyperbole here) absolutely hate your guts. Again, if you think that writing is going to make people like you, think again.
Of course, keep in mind that Dave Sim is an outspoken misogynist, so his idea of “making people think” might be different than yours or mine, but still.
