Help me write the Sozi Guide

Sozi  is free software  for creating animated presentations. It is generally used to make visual aids for lectures or meetings. With Sozi, a presentation is not organized as a sequence of slides, but rather as a succession of viewpoints on a map that you explore.

Since 2009, a lot of people have tried Sozi and found it useful. Amazing creations have been made with it, and I have received incredible support from all over the world.
Sozi is still a personal project that I develop mostly alone in my spare time. Over the years, while many users, including myself, were expecting new features and bug fixes, writing code has often felt like a better use of my time than writing documentation.
Today, I realize that the documentation for Sozi needs to be updated and reorganized. I usually feel that some questions on the community forum would be easier to answer if there was a real Sozi user guide available.
For this reason, I have decided to rewrite the documentation of Sozi in the form of an online book. I have also reserved a very nice domain name for it:
Like Sozi, the book will be published under a free license, and will be available on the web with no ads and no paywall.
However, writing the Sozi Guide in my spare time is not a viable option today. This is why I am starting this campaign to help me take as many days off from my job as necessary, so that I can focus on writing the book, create new examples and tutorials.
Thanks for your support. Please feel free to share your ideas about what you expect from the Sozi Guide .
