In the meantime, I'd like to know - How much inspiration and input did you receive from the Street Team?
Everyone on the Street Team contributed $100 to help the fund the book before it was even written (via a Kickstarter campaign). So the support and assistant was incredible.
Inspiration can be a tricky word, especially when it comes to any kind of art. Coincidentally, the book talks about the word inspiration a bit. Technically, one could argue that inspiration it must come from one's own spirit, or in other words one's own free-spirited self. More broadly, I think it tends to be a word that refers to something mysterious, something that is perhaps mysterious by definition.
The amount of involvement in the project by the members of the Street Team varied. A couple of them volunteered their time to give the book a proofread while it was still a very rough draft, correcting some typos and providing feedback and suggestions about possible changes.
I can say that many they not only inspired me from day 1 but also had a very tangible impact on the book in terms more direct support, funding, and assistance.
