This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Writing is hard! But if you write, you know how vital it can be to find the words to express yourself and connect with others.
Microcosm’s prolific bestselling authors Joe Biel and Dr. Faith Harper have once again teamed up, this time to expand their zine Unf#ck Your Writing into a full-length book.
No matter what you write or why, there’s something in this book to help you get past your writer’s block, imposter syndrome, or whatever struggles you have with writing.
A paperback book that packs a punch! Most writing books are focused purely on either self-expression or commercial writing, or wander off into thinly veiled memoir. Unf#ck Your Writing instead offers a potent dose of advice on every page that you can put to work right now in getting started, getting through, or finishing up your big writing project.
Would-be authors (and/or editors!) of books, zines, and other long form projects will find this book helpful from cover to cover, but anyone writing for an audience will find much here to enhance their organization, clarity, and perspective about what to write and why.
This is not a book about crafting beautiful sentences with perfect grammar; instead Harper and Biel will teach you to write so that your words have the greatest possible impact on the world.
With this book, learn about:
- The science-y bits of why we write and how it gets fuc#ed
- Settling on an idea to write about
- Tapping into your storytelling brain
- Setting and sticking to goals
- Dealing with anxiety, procrastination, and imposter syndrome
- Getting your ideas across clearly and powerfully
- The differences between narrative and non-narrative work
- Thinking like an editor
- Getting published
- Finding meaning and purpose in your writing
- Having fun!
