Default Re: Hexagram #4 Coming to Kickstarter

I don't think "right the first time" is taught anywhere, or at least not anywhere responsible, but rather that it's a bad habit a lot of us pick up. I'm doing it right now as I write this reply, rehearsing different sentences for the sound of them before typing anything down. Somewhere along the way many of us seem to fall into this habit, particularly when writing letters or posts, and then it bleeds over into those forms of writing we do less frequently, like articles and fiction. I wasn't even aware I was doing this until the time came to unlearn it.

My schooling on writing began in the 1970s, and the focus was really on grammar, syntax, and spelling. So I suspect the emphasis on rules also helped codify this "make sure it's written right" ethos, especially on children who were less likely to revise their work. Later in high school and even moreso in college would come the emphasis on good editing and revision. But by then the elementary habits had hold.

Please put a pin in the writing advice discussion for now. It's a derail from talking about the subject of this thread: Hexagram #4 and the currently running Kickstarter.

Ah, sorry Andrew, good point. We should've started a separate thread.

Back on topic, should those of us who are backing for multiple copies indicate this in any way? Since there are add-ons available it may not always be clear who is pledging for multiple copies of #4 versus those who are getting other goodies. I ask in case this helps plan the print run size.

EDIT: On further thought, there's probably a big enough buffer in the print run to cover the likely spread, making a more precise tally unnecessary.

Nice, the KS just passed the 1,000% funded threshold. Still some days to go and grow.
