It's eerily quiet after a Kickstarter campaign ends. During the project, for every single 1,025 backers, I got an email when they pledged, decreased, increased or canceled their pledge, commented, or messaged me. My iPhone was in a constant state of activity, and I was even experiencing "phantom buzzing" when there were actually no alerts happening. Then, all at once, it stops. Sure people message and comment still, but it's nothing compared to what it's been. It's a relief in many ways, but also like the day after Christmas.
All that being said, I'm now beginning to realize that, unlike the hours I put in during the campaign in which I was unsure whether or not there would be a financial return, I can now work on the deck knowing that I have a certain number of hours prepaid. This is quite freeing, and I'm excited about finishing the face cards, working with Bicycle and seeing this thing materialize into something I can lose at poker with.
