Number of new  backers: 9    Total backers: 120     Funding £3,624      Percentage funded 72%.    Days to go: 9.

If you have been following the blog you will know that weekends are not easy times for the project. The biggest number of new backers the project has had in a single day is 10, and that was near the start, so to get 9 today is wonderful. I know other kickstarter projects experience a surge of support as they near their deadlines but I didn't expect this to happen to the Sensory Story Project as it seemed as though those who wanted to back the project did so as they came across it, and as I've expressed in previous posts I've told everyone I can think to tell. So where have today's nine new backers come from? I think a few are from yesterday's lectures but I expect the rest are friends of exisiting backers and that as we entered into the launch count down, from 10 to 9 people were more spurred to have conversations with their friends about the project.

I know we are a long way off, we've over £1000 to raise and less than 9 days to do it in, kicktraq still has us trending to miss our final goal, but it's hard not to feel a sense of rising joy.
