I've played Fiasco one time, with all but one people first-timers. When we were done, I thought "If that had been a movie, I'd have watched the hell out of it."

This part of In Their Own Worlds planning is all about math. Between getting the measurements of everyone participating in the photoshoots and the exact costs from vendors, I'm just asking everyone working with me to send me a series of numbers.

Then I send those numbers to other people.

Eventually all these numbers will turn into giant gowns, into swords, into a werewolf, into giant prints, into postcards. But for now, they are in an excel sheet waiting to transform.

We are just a kiss away from funding Ursula Vernon's Digger. 35 hours to go, three photoshoots fully funded, one photoshoot SO CLOSE TO FUNDING.

We are down to the last 35 hours of the campaign. It ends tomorrow night at 8pm.  I'm going to have a party at my house tomorrow night to celebrate the campaign and have my friends hold me because I've just been vibrating with excitement.

This is Panya. She went missing from our boat last night at dusk. We are anchored in Mill Cove, near Blount, Reed and Quarantine Islands, in Jacksonville Florida. We searched the surrounding areas for hours with no sign, but later in the evening we both heard her cry. Since sound carries well over water, we have some hope she made out to shore.

Panya (Baba) is shy and strangers. She loves fish and shrimp, and will come to a 'psh psh psh' sound that means you have food. She is very fast! She is an Egyptian Mau, and is sensitive to anaesthetic, so can only use ketamine. She is up to date on her shots, and is microchiped: 480A247442

Please contact me with any information. Shares are appreciated.

Boom! We reached Ursula Vernon's stretch goal and DIGGER is now funded! That means we will be making a giant wombat and setting up a fantasy marketplace in Ursula's back yard.

I have a costumer and set designer who has worked in TV and movies who is going to help me do this. And it's all because I got the funding from a community of supporters who believes in what I do. This means so much to me.

It is now the final 10 HOURS for In Their Own Worlds! Last chance to back this project and get the rewards. With all the stretch goals we reached, we are now funding 4 photoshoots! With each photoshoot we fund, all the backers get their rewards increased.

We are currently $2,700 away from funding Ellen Kushner's SWORDSPOINT.

It's final call! One last chance to jump on board.

Man, how I wish I had the disposable income to be a beardy-background character in Ursula's shoot. That would be so awesome.

The first batch of postcard rewards have arrived!

I know, you are supposed to wait till a campaign is over to get rewards, but I couldn't wait. I had to see what they would look like in print. (I did wait till we funded though)

Want one? You can get them here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/458185346/in-their-own-worlds

But only for the next 26 hours. After that, they are gone.

The big Kickstarter question: Is this actually going to happen?

No one has said this to me directly, but I know that when people hear about a big ambitious project, one of the core concerns they have is if it's going to happen or if the creator is going to back out.

The best predictor of the future is the past. Shelter in Place, my RPG, is in the hands of the backers who ordered it. When I said I was going to write The Ministry Initiative, I did. When I said I was going to stay out for 24 hours in the city, I did it. When I was asked to illustrate the inside of Heroine with photography, I RENTED OUT A PRISON and made it happen. I Make Things Happen.

When I make a promise that I'll make a project happen, I do it.

I may put off the dishes till tomorrow. I may not get to the gym as much as I should. I might drink too much coffee.

But when I say I'm going to finish a creative project? I do it. You can build your house on my word.
