Crowdfunding. A year after

Hey friends!

Huh... a year ago crowdfunding ended! This whole crowdfunding story was a good lesson for me, and despite the fact that it failed miserably, I'm not going to retreat from my goal.

Yesterday I had a very bizarre dream - as if I were in some huge hall. There is a huge hole in the middle of this hall that leads right to the netherworld, where terrible demons are born from stone blocks into the light. Swinging cords with hooks at the ends hang from the ceiling. And a huge number of people around me are as if in some kind of ecstasy and greet demons and jump right on the hooks, sacrificing themselves and saluting the demons. And you know that the strangest thing is that in this whole terrible picture I did not feel fear, instead, I sincerely could not understand why everyone was behaving in such a strange way and just wanted to get away from there quickly, which I did...

And it seems now that I clearly understand what this dream was about... there is no need to doubt yourself and the choice you make. There is no need to doubt your choice not to follow the way that everyone is following. It may even be useful to look at what everyone is doing and do things differently, do the opposite. Very often in my life, I had to stand on the road of choice, at the fork between doing things like everybody does it, or doing it my own way... I thank my parents for not forced me to go where it seemed right but giving me the freedom to choose. And though often (yes often) such decisions are complex and you have to answer for them with your sweat and blood, but these are decisions that sound in tune with your heart and fill you with life-giving energy.

And that is exactly what will happen with Starc. I want to make the most useful, most convenient, and coolest software for authors, and I will do it. Every day, drop by drop. And I will not do it the way everyone does - they tell me to go to the investors, everyone does it now, and I say that we can do it ourselves; they tell me to do all the software closed, and we will make most of it free and also open the source; Yes, even with fucking buttons they say that no one makes funny inscriptions in the professional software, and we will have them, just because no one does it.

So, friends, stay tuned - we have a long story ahead! :)

P.S. STARC beta version. Inside your mailbox. Tomorrow.

I appreciate your passion and ethic. Scenarist is a wonderful app. I just started using it on my Debian (Linux) based laptop and I'm very impressed. It is beautifully designed and it's loaded with useful features. Thank you for your hard work incl. the funny buttons, the advocacy for open source etc. etc.! I'm looking forward to Starc.

I like very much your soft. And the way you talk about it resonate whith me (...Blueprinting...). I feel like home for the first time with a screenwriting software... Sorry for my english, i am from a french speaking country (Africa, Mali). So voilĂ . Just keep it going, never give up. The only thing is i can not see what i am writing. It is too small on my computer. Maybe you should think about an option to zoom in or out just for the visibility of texts. Great Job. Thank you.

Hello Kader, you can zoom in text or cards with the Ctrl and + shortcut (Command and + if you on Mac), and Ctrl and - (Command and - for Mac) for zoom out.
