ander: The End.

So, I guess this was a failed experiment. I'm sad to see it go, but it just didn't work out the way I had hoped. My apologies to you three who participated. I am leaving the journal active, so you can go back and read your posts if you want, but you can not post any new entries, and all the members who did not post have been removed and can no longer read members only entries. When I get back to New York, maybe we can form a real writing group, or just swap stories every now and then. And I'll eventually post a critique of your last story, gdawz. Or maybe I'll just e-mail it to you. Sorry it's taken so long. I just lost my enthusiasm for all this when it became clear that most of the people who said they were excited about it turned out to be too busy.

Anyway, I have to get back to work. I didn't sleep last night. It was fun, folks.

Thanks.

Alex.

gdawz: how to begin every paragraph with the letter i

I understand, man. I owe you a critique for your last post as well.

I would like to say that one can remain dedicated to a cause, forever, without any feedback. Alas, the world is a push 'n' pull affair, and you can only write so many love letters without receiving responses before you get the point.

I still will never understand why people decide to get involved in something in which it seems like they do not have any intention of participating. The thought, in those situations, doesn't really count for all that much. (oooh)

I am very interested in a person-to-person writing group. Perhaps this would give us a forum to not only act on assignments, but also to critique ongoing works. Mostly, though, I'm curious to meet you, because you seem like good people.

That's all.
Thanks for trying, Alex.
