It's the end of the world

I haven't written anything here in over a month. Instead I have focused on fiction, and have written quite a bit, to my surprise.

So I have decided to close the shutters on the window into The Shows in My Mind. For now at least. Why keep a blog if I never write here? I may open it back up at some point, I may not. Time will tell.

Thanks to those who have read and commented, though there weren't that many of either kind.

Things change. Some things disappear, others appear.

Not only am I closing the blog, but my writing group may be disintegrating as well. For three years now there has been a core of people around which others have come and gone. Could Be King, the only published fiction writer among us, has changed jobs and won't have time to focus on much else besides writing his next novel. Finally Has A Kid finally has a kid, and will be spending most of her time being a mom.

We will try to keep meeting after the last scheduled huddle in December, and I dearly hope we can keep going. The writing class as well as the online community that followed it has fallen apart, so the huddle and my cronies are the only group I have to fuel my inspiration in the way that only fellow writers. Plus its a nice feeling to go there and feel inadequate too...

So. Bye for now. I will still be watching the shows in my minds, and I hope you will be watching the ones in your mind.

I don't have a TV now, but that's okay. The shows in my mind are almost always better.

Good-bye! Keep writing! Don't suck!

Hanna said...

DOH!

Bast said...

So not kosher! Now how will I be able to compare the shows in my own mind to the twists of others..?

Anyways. Let me know when the documentation of your mental machinery starts anew - I'll be a avid reader.

I only began reading very recently..so it's a pity you're shutting shop...but i'll be diving amongst the archives for a long time.

Anders said...

Awww shucks. Now you get them writings published. I don't want this to end! We were doing so great...

beardonaut said...

ege: thanks. I'll try not to.

Hanna: Or D'oh'eth, as he puts it in the Amish episode.

Bast: I know, I know, I leave a lot of you in despair, and you will suffer from withdrawal. You'll just have to find solace in music and wine and whatnot.

Steelwheels: we are so going somewhere where I can get pecan pie.

Sashimi: thanks! Feel free to comment on older stuff ;)

Anders: yes we were. I will strive to get us published.

OK, I just happened on your blog by hitting the "Next Blog" function on my blog but, from reading the few posts I have you should keep on.

If you're like most you have to write because it's in your nature, and that's just what you do. Don't sweat it. Just write.

在台灣有許多的家庭無法一次負擔汽車和房子的金額,或是基於錢在身邊比較安心的準則,往往會向銀行或是企業申請貸款,房屋貸款年限通常是十年或二十年,前幾年可以申請只付利息的優惠,車貸則是依據貸款的金額來決定年數,但通常都是三到五年,汽車貸款相較於房屋貸款有彈性的多,因此許多有名的企業也會和銀行合作提供汽車貸款的服務。

No! Don't go! Come back!

Du vet att vi i huddlen alltid finns här. Alternativet är att jag kidnappar er alla och låser in er någonstans där jag kan utnyttja er för feedback till max. Huddle i augusti, annars väntar den mörka, våta, råttfyllda källaren.
