Crowdfunding is always a gamble. But one thing that should be steady is how the platform works that you chose to use to get your project out into the world. Change and evolution are inevitable, but change for the sake of change often leads to rash decisions. Is the current Kickstarter situation an example of blunder playing out before our eyes? Or are a lot of people blowing things way out of proportion?
We’re living in a world where people are starting more and more to be held accountable for their actions and inactions. Holding things against the writer/artist makes perfect sense to me. But how much should you hold the publisher accountable? And more importantly how do you let it effect other people who already have things rolling through that publisher?
Recently I was a guest on Bipolar and Surviving to talk to Dan Lis and his listeners about my experiences with anxiety and depression. That’s nothing new. I’ve talked about it before and I’ll probably talk about it again, and I’ll be as open as the host wants me to be about it.
But Dan asked me an interesting question, one that he’s probably asked a ton of people but nobody has asked me yet. He asked if I would get rid of the anxiety and depression aspect of my life if I could, and I’ll give you the pretty much the same answer here as I did on Dan’s show. I really don’t think I would despite how much I hate having to deal with it.
