The End

[December 2013] All good things come to an end. All bad things, too, for that matter.

Although I thought I’d already reached this milestone, my re-count confirms that this is my 100th post to Storytellers Unplugged. So it seems appropriate that it will also be my last.

I was one of the original members of this blogging community. My first post, The Day Job, was published on June 17, 2005 and I have never missed the 17th of any month in the intervening 8½ years. Once or twice I reposted an older entry because of other deadlines, but there was always something on this site on that day of the month. Several times I even recorded my entry in audio as part of an initiative to expand our reach.

Alas, I note that this blog has seen better days. Where there used to be a new post every single day of the month in the early days, I now observe that, on average, there are four new posts per month. We haven’t had a really good month (five posts!) in some time.

Since my inaugural post, I’ve written somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 words, enough for a novel. In 2014, I’m going to do my best to write an actual novel, so I am narrowing my focus.

So, I bid you adieu — at least at this site. If you want to see what I’m up to, you can always find me in one of the many other places on the Internet that I frequent:
