I got a response from Kickstarter on my project proposal:
Thank you for taking the time to share your idea. Unfortunately, this isn’t the right fit for Kickstarter. We receive many project proposals daily and review them all with great care and appreciation. We see a wide variety of inspiring ideas, and while we value each one’s uniqueness and creativity, Kickstarter is not the right platform for all of them. We wish you the best of luck as you continue to pursue your endeavor.
So, that puts a minor obstacle in my way. I’m at the point where, basically, all I need is money to do a small production run. Kickstarter seemed like a nice way to both raise funds, get the word out, and secure some “pre-orders”, but I guess that’s not going to happen.
What happens next? Well, I’ll come up with a Plan B. If that doesn’t work, I go to Plan C. If that doesn’t work, I go to Plan D. I don’t yet know what “B”, “C”, and “D” are, but I’ll figure it out.
