Motivational speakers are often going on about not seeing your failures as such but lets face it, sometimes failure happens. I know my Kickstarter project is young but I’m beginning to realize that I don’t hang out with incredibly rich benefactors. I’m not friends with people who have money to burn. I’m friends with people like me, stingy tightwads. And I don’t have a ton of friends. Granted I’m not a Facebook junkie who goes around friend-ing every friend of every friend of I have. My self-worth is not defined by the number of online impersonal relationships I can get. But in a venture where I want to reach the greatest audience and need some generous people who want to back a very worthy project, I have not chosen wisely. *shrugs*
So while I went into this with high hopes, I’m crashing pretty fast. I still have 23 days. And realistically, the $5 pledge amounts to pre-ordering the eBook since that is what it will cost post-publish so maybe that’s the spin I need. It has been a good learning experience for me. Perhaps I’m not networking enough. Maybe I’m not cut out for fame and fortune. Whatever the case, failure wasn’t an option when I started this but it sure looks like a possibility. So if that happens, I guess it’s time to learn something. Then keep moving forward.
This is the Novel Mage saying, *POOF*
