Why does everything always have to be a catch 22? I started a Kickstarter to raise funds to hire a composer/lyricist for the Musical I am writing, but no matter how much I tweet or post to Facebook, I can't get anyone to donate. Several companies offer to promote my project, but I have to pay them to do that. If I could pay for people to promote my project, I wouldn't need a Kickstarter.
I'm a stay at home mom, my husband works 40 hrs a week, and gets a military pension, and we have just enough money to pay the bills, buy groceries, and occasionally do something (cheap) fun.
