I’m nervous, and a little scared. As long as I have the idea inside, as long as I can discuss it with a few friends, as long as I don’t put it to the test – it’s safe. It’s a million dollar idea, a dream which will succeed. Someday.
But now it’s real. Now I’ve put it out on Facebook for public criticism, committed myself to a May Kickstarter campaign, and if that fails, my idea fails. Maybe it will only be temporary – maybe I’ll fail and try it again. But it could also prove to be an unfeasible idea, in which case I’ll have lost the possibility of it becoming a wild success.
But on the other hand, an idea that stays in my head isn’t exactly a wild success.
