The Goal The goal was to document every thought process and step that Drew had while building and finishing Space Box. Our mission was to create a website for the book, create a way to take pre-orders, set up a tumblr blog to document things as we went, write the book, edit the book, design the book, get all of the necessities like ISBN numbers to make the book official, and ship the book off to the printer.
