I pledged on a Kickstarter today, for the first time, but I couldn’t pass it up.
I’ve listened to some of the lectures from Dean Wesley Smith in the past and found them of value, and the stretch goal rewards (that they’ve already activated) are just too good to pass up.
When I saw the latest post about it and realized time was running out and that there were some seriously good reasons to go ahead, I went for it.
As I’m kinda (very) broke-ish at the moment, I did the $5 pledge. The financial consequences of my bad year finally hit hard and I’m scraping by until I can reap the rewards of finally getting better and writing (and publishing) enough to get the money flowing again.
Things are improving, but man, I really wish I could write faster. :D
