Hey guys, I wondering if you could help me out. I need advice;
I love this site to death and I've been here a very long time, but it's given what I hoped to get out of it, on the writing side, and I don't feel like I have to time to run it anymore. It really stings to say this, especially because I've made so many awesome friends on here, but I'm not sure I can keep up with the site anymore. I need to dedicate more time to writing my novels, or it'll be a great number of years before I'm published, and that just won't work with the future I had in mind.
I know some of you guys might be upset and maybe even angry with me. I ask you to please understand; I've dedicated most of my time and energy to writing for nearly three years, but I've wanted to be a writer since I was eight years old and feel like I've already wasted most of the time between then and now.
Robert McKee said that as experienced or as determined as a writer may be, all writers had to admit that at least 90% or their work is less than their best. It hurt when I read that, but it occurred to me that it only hurt because it applied to me. It then occurred to me, also, why there are no Shakespeares and Virgils today:
It's because he's right.
I want to change that.
Now understand that I'm not asking permission to leave the site: I am merely asking permission to lay off on RP'ing and Modding. I think a new Admin should be elected or volunteer, if anyone feels they may be suitable or ready to take on that responsibility.
I would not be leaving; learning to write would merit me very little if I would be so remiss as not to teach and give back. I will be posting articles on writing on a regular basis (perhaps monthly or weekly). I want to help people here in the same ways that people elsewhere have helped me in my writing.
