I think that is the exact key question: How do we do come up with ideas we are excited about. I don't get excited about short stories. Maybe on a reading level, but not on a creation level. If I had a short story idea that I was excited about, then I would love to do, but unfortunatley I don't. And while I know that this epic I am pursuing is probably a bad idea from a starting out perspective, at this time it's the only thing that is just itching at me to tell. When I orginally posted this question I was really struggling with what I should be doing, and what I've come to realize is that what I should be doing what keeps me working. This comic keeps me going. Stopping to try and come up with a short story just doesn't make sense for me right now. I may have a short story in the works, but even it is looking to be around 50-70 pages. So I dunno. I like what Scott McCloud said: "Write the stories you want to read"

That's pretty much exactly how I feel too, thirdeyeh.
