Finally going through the course, thanks @Rick_Davidson great content, and I had to pause it when I got to the section on “Who can I ask” as I wanted to share something that helped me on this subject.
A few months ago I had a lot of doubts about moving forwards with a lifelong dream of creating games, got the bug creating text adventures on my ZX Spectrum, due to one very specific mental roadblock. Can I start such a big task when i’m only months away from turning 40?
I already follow a lot of indie developers on Twitter and decided to speak to one, Tom Happ creator of Axiom Verge. Even just tweeting my doubts helped a lot. I had a lot of tweets back from Tom’s followers some devs themselves all very positive but I also got a reply from Tom again very positive pointing out that I have far more life knowledge and experience that a 17 year old starting the process.
Bit of a ramble so apologies but the point i wanted to make is to not be afraid to ask.
