Rest In Peace

An explanation is required, so there can be no one that doesn't know the whats, wheres and whys of this decision. Or the what's, where's and why's. Either or.

It's been two years now. Just over, I think, by a couple of weeks. In that time, there have been almost 270 posts on this blog. Not all of those were stories; when I first started this blog, I didn't know what to post and it took me a long time to get around to posting stories only. But I took that decision and since then have posted fairly regularly.

I like writing, but things change. They have to, to keep life fresh and invigorating.

I've made the decision not to post any more fiction to this blog. Ever. I'm actually taking a sabbatical from writing. How long I can't say - I don't know myself.

It's why the last story finished so bizarrely; it's why I have been quiet on the blog front for some time.

So. I'm done.

I'd like to thank those of you who have linked to me over the two years this blog has been up. Your links will remain. Thanks to those who commented and for being a source of inspiration. I will continue to visit as many of you as I can and enjoy the words that you put up for people like me to read.

Yeah, how bad would I be if I stopped anyone else commenting on this blog?

After, take a look at the sidebar links and find something better to read.

Nothing to see here. Move along now, please, there's nothing to see here.
purplesimon over and out...

I am sad.
As I have said on one of my posts, I hate "good byes", of any sort. But, as they say; when the story is over, the book is closed. Well, "they" didn't really say that, I just did.

Oh, I don't want to say the next time!

If anyone has any thoughts on what they think this blog should be about, let me know.

Hey, how 'bout just writing your thoughts. Boringly, as I do. I don't ever post fiction, and it's a relief. Less pressure. It's still writing, yeah? I mean, you don't have to call it that, if you don't want to. Talk only about the things you want to talk about.

In other words, do it your own way. See what happens.
