I should remember that because I have a reputation for humor and sarcasm, I need to start some entries with “I’m totally not joking” and possibly even end on it. The problem with this theory is, I’d inevitably corrupt the sentence and strip it of meaning by using it around a sarcastic post.
Never mind, the point it, I’m really, really just about done here. I’m coming up on the end of my contract with my ISP, but I’ll pay for the storage for another year, and I’ll re-up the domain name. But I’m going to wander away from the online world from now on and go back to talking to myself. And, if I’m being honest, I think y’all have just about convinced me to give up writing for good. Special thanks go out to Jerrod Balzer, Michele Lee, and Gef Fox for pushing me to consider quitting more seriously.
Five years I been at this, and my wrists are sore. I’ve worked long into every night. I JUST bought Dragon Naturally Speaking, not for the voice recognition, but for the text to speech editor, so I could fix more typos. And for a while, y’all won’t notice that I’m done if all you look at is releases. That’s because I’m dropping stuff I’ve already written, after editing it so it doesn’t read like shit. I’m going to try to finish Ginger’s story, and Peter’s. I’m going to try and write another few books for myself. But I don’t guess there’s much point to writing more Mystical World Wars books if everyone is going to keep asking me “Where’s the good guys?” I told you, I DON’T DO heroes. I don’t believe in them, and that’s not how I write. And yet every time I turn around, my books and characters are judged based on a checklist of what heroes should do.
