I love my brother. But historically, he has never been reliable when it comes to creative projects. He's a brilliant artist but he doesn't think twice about abandoning his half of the work and expecting me to be okay with it. I'm sure we all have friends and family who want to "collaborate" with us. Some of us are afraid to say no even when we think it's a bad idea to say yes. Some of us suffer for our craft. But think on this. Is it worth doing 99 percent of the work for 50 percent or less of the credit? Do you value your work? Then stand your ground. My brother wanted to work on a web comic. Comedy. Like Futurama, Family Guy, and Rick and Morty. I told him that I have some stories that can be funny at times but that I don't have it in me to write a joke per script. And besides, the Internet is saturated with those comics. I very much doubt I can write something that I could reach Megatokyo and Sluggy Freelance levels of success. This isn't being negative. It's knowing my limits and being happy with what I can do. It would be one thing if my brother had some money to pay me for my work but at the moment, working on a collaborative effort wouldn't be possible. It's okay to say no.
