Reader! I have squeezed ever single possible ounce of validation, inspiration, motivation, and reassurance out of this blog in the past year, and now it is time to move on. I am tired of publishing things before they are done just for the momentum that having an anonymous audience gives me- I am ready, ready, ready to hold out for bigger and better things. I am growing weary, too, of the idea of blogging itself- the audience is dark, I cannot see who I am performing for, and I’ve come to realize that I wouldn’t want to anyways. So farewell! If I actually know you in real life, this is not, of course, goodbye. But if you are a stranger- as the majority of my readers are- look for me in the bookstore in a couple of years- I’ll be made of paper and glue, and if you take me home I promise, pinky swear and cross my heart, that I will tell you all my secrets.
