This is a short post, nothing special.
In November I ran a Kickstarter campaign for their “Commissions” project. It was my first ever experience on the provider side of crowdsourcing.
I’d like to say a massive thanks to my friends for making the project a success, especially those who paid more than what their ‘reward tier’ required.
For those who didn’t see the original post, my Kickstarter campaign was poetry based. Basically, I’d write whatever people wanted me to write – they picked the topic, form and length.
It was cool to try something new and I loved hearing back from people about what they did with the poem and how they reacted to what I wrote.
Some of the feedback included:
“You bloody bugger you made me cry!!!!!!!
Thank you sooooo much”
“Oh my god it’s so good! I love the second stanza. It actually made me tear up a bit”
“I love it! Perfect 👌”
“It’s beautiful and I love it. 😊 AND I can’t believe how great the structure is! Sonnets are so strict 😂 I also love the last line”
“Can’t see it well in the photo but this is what I did with your poems you wrote for my sister. She really loves them Ron. She reads them over and over and admires how you put together my feeling about her into such beautiful words. Thanks again for doing the poems x”
And here’s what people did with their poems that were gifts for other people:
Again, I want to thank everyone that got involved for their support, encouragement and feedback. Much love 💙
