Subject: Re: Update Your Indiegogo Campaign
I am terribly concerned at what you tell me. I wonder if I might ask for your help. As I do not have an Indiegogo campaign, and therefore do not have any contributors, I am at a loss for how best to reassure them.
I have often been aware of my inadequacy when it comes to finding the right words for troubled friends: to decide just how to tell them that things are fine, or aren’t as bad as they seem, or, at least, that I am here for them. Finding these words for strangers is even harder, and finding them for strangers who do not exist presents a whole new level of difficulty.
Could you, perhaps, consider inventing some of these people, and then letting me know what they are like as human beings? Perhaps that way, I can use my fiction writing experience to find the right words. If you think it necessary to first invent a campaign I am fine with that, and only hope that it is for something I would enjoy.
I also wish to express my admiration for what you have accomplished. The notion of people “reaching out” from beyond the grave is well established, at least among fantasy writers, con artists, ecclesiastics, and other members of the profession; reaching out from non-existence is something entirely new, and you should feel proud of creating a platform that permits it.
Thank you again for taking the trouble to let me know about these concerns.
