About

Hello! 
  
My name is Cindy and I tell stories.
 
I have been writing since high school, all manner of things from stories, poetry to short plays. To be a writer, it’s what I've wanted to be when I grew up. Still true? Yeah, I haven’t grown up yet and I still dream it.

 Now it is going to start coming true.

Want to know how?
 
First, the thing a writer wants most in the world is to have an audience, and also maybe to inspire others. This Kickstarter will fund the publishing costs of my first literary magazine and other expenses that come with becoming an independent writer. 
 
Introducing:

Here, There be a Writer presents “Stories to be Told”. 

This Kickstarter will help me fund the building of a proper website, to promote my writing and projects with business cards and advertising. This also means that I will be able to publish my completed works and develope works in progress (WIPs) in an actual printed literary magazine (a PDF version will also be available).

“Stories to be Told” will feature my stories, short plays, poetry, and even a bit of my art. This will be the PREMIER issue of what I hope will become a regular magazine of literature, stories, dreams, fears, and everything in between (that’s a lot of stuff to feature).  

All stories provoke a response and show us something, either from the writer or ourselves the reader, from love to betrayal, or adventure and philosophy.  

Imagine what a tree is thinking when it is the only tree when it is lonely, or maybe how it feels to loved, or maybe sneak a glimpse of the secrets told in coffee shops.  

Goal is $1,100.

Curious yet?  

I have pledge levels that include Tweeter, Blogger, Poet, Novelist, and Playwright. There are also Stretch Goals that include being able to purchase/rent Adobe Photoshop ($1,500), add a second bookmark design ($2,000), and upgrade the printing of the magazine to premium ($2,500).

Then come with me for stories to be told, and maybe you will be inspired in the process.

Risks and challenges

This is a first for me, so there are a number of challenges that come with the first time out of the gate. I have to find a printer who has an amazing reputation and good cost. I need to find a printer who will provide me with stellar backer perks at a high quality of great costs.

I expect that withing those two categories, that I will be facing ups and downs. I will be providing regular updates on the progress of the project.

Another challenge is laying out of the periodical, so I will need to learn to be able to put a literature periodical together. The updates will also feature some of that process.

But I am really excited to take this leap into a bigger and to chronicle this journey. Thank you for believing in me.
