Your post meets my needs for truth, honesty, feeling feelings, clarity and awe so many gifts received of being in community creating.

I am offering a few data resources if they are welcome as an ackowledgment of the truth of those clenched butt cheeks, an appreciation for the dark humor of the reality of those cheeks - and just naming how hard it is as a creator to ride the funding curve for any crowdsource project. I see how hard you are working and am cheering for your absolute success.

A company (I am not endorsing just the best article I could find on the funding curve without diving too deep) discusses the known phenomenen of the funding curve: https://www.crowdcrux.com/how-to-understand-the-kickstarter-funding-curve/
