my book project was just rejected from kickstarter, but i blame myself, a weekend of filming and tweeting, i jinxed it.
i have learned time and again the rule of not counting one’s eggs before they are hatched. countless times that i told people about something new or exciting before it happens it falls through. you would think i would learn or get depressed or something, but no, i glide on happily towards the next time something good is about to happen to me and i ruin it.
i have a great life, regardless of student loans and self-imposed stress, and many great things happen to me daily, but it’s those sure things i just can’t help but gush about that end up falling through.
i worry what this trend means to the fate of the book, but quickly push the worry away and do something useful with my time..like keep improving the book. they say you can spend time talking about a book or you can spend time writing it. in this day and age, i’m banking that you can do both.
funny story, the internet blows at my place and while i was trying to upload this post, i got an error message. the post about how we didn’t get this proposal for kickstarter failed. sometimes you just gotta laugh and thank snoop for screen shots:
