I am going to use renpy

I still have no idea what kind of visual novel I want to make but I know which visual novel engine I am going to use. Renpy has the right mix of features and stability. I also like that the developer tries to fund his project through recurring donations from his fans and giving away his software for free to everyone... Once I create my visual novel I will also do the same. The key is in keeping the costs below donations. Depending on donations from fans means that I would be directly dependent on my fans so that would be where my interest would lie. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. So many companies have diversified their incomes to such an extent that they can for a long time not cater to their core base until it is too late (e.g. Star Wars). Growth would be slower but look at how far Ikea has come by just reinvesting its profits. The same goes for Lego.

The problem is I have no idea how to code, draw, write or compose music. This is going to be quite the challenge.
