On Quitting

After some more exhaustive consultation with the board of directors and all relevant stakeholders (consisting of me, myself, and a guy named Bob who keeps showing up to the meetings and is just so darn enthusiastic I don’t have the heart to tell him he’s actually at the wrong meeting) I have decided, for the sake of my continued insanity, to quit.  That’s right.  I’m throwing in the towel as far as concerns this whole writing lark.

On this, the first day of a new month, I am closing down if all else fails…use a hammer and it’s associated Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Google+ accounts.  By midnight tonight all trace of their existence will be erased from the interwebs.  My computer’s hard drive will be purged of all reviews, Song Title Challenges and works in progress.

It’s just not worth it.  These few weeks of absence have given me some perspective and I now know I’ll never be good enough.  It is foolish to think I can cut it as a writer, and on this day of all days I assure you, I am no fool.

Thus, I bid thee farewell.  Thanks for tolerating my drivel thus far.  You’ll be glad to know it will clog up your reader no more.  So long, adieu and goodbye.

Now bugger off.  Camp NaNoWriMo started ten hours ago and I have a thousand words to finish before I’m allowed to go to bed tonight!

      1. No I was like wtf that can’t be, until I remembered how depressed and insane I used to get during my postgrad. So post-thesis-me thought what you wrote could be all true.
