I'm stepping down
« on: May 31, 2021, 11:56:39 AM »
I have decided to step down from running the Monthly Writing Contest. I find myself pulled from every direction possible at the moment, leaving me with no time for myself. While this doesn’t take a lot of time, I find myself obsessing over the thing. I’m lost as to why participation has dropped off so drastically.

In fact, my whole online presence is about to take a backseat to other matters. I hope someone takes up the mantel and keeps the thing going. Make up new rules have unique challenges for our writers. I can’t do it at this time. Other matters in my life are more pressing, more important, and immediate. I must attend to them.

My own productivity with my personal writing has been at a standstill all year. My ghostwriting has been spotty, not in quantity but in quality. I have to focus my efforts on my jobs. So, for now, I’ll be on here, reading. But I doubt I share much for some time to come.

After Summer, I’ll see where I’m at, what I want, and if I want to return to writing for here. You guys have been great. My decision has nothing to do with any of you. Maybe I’m a little disappointed that more of you don’t vote, more of you don’t write for the contest, and that I have no idea how to writers back into the game.

Then again, that is on me. I just desperately need a break from all things on here.

I know I haven't been very active with these contests, Millie, but I do appreciate the amount of effort you've put into running them, so it is a shame to see you leave.

If no-one has taken up the job, I'd be happy to. My writing's been stagnant recently, even though my imagination has not been, so this might give me something to do while the creative juices return.

That is truly a shame, Millie. You did an exemplary job coordinating this contest, and we will all miss you...

Hoping you return to us quickly.....

It is sad to lose you Millie even for a time. I hope the absence is not a long one.

Wow Millie.  Sad to hear, but totally understandable. You are a fixture here. I, for one, hope this will be short lived.
