A Note From Chuck
This morning, while doing the final round of error correction of the previous post with my lovely wife/proofreader MissMonkay, it became evident to the both of us that my passion for writing has withered. The construction was lazy, the analysis was half hearted and I had absolutely no desire put in the effort to fix even the most obvious of grammatical and spelling errors. Over the last six months, inspiration has been hard for me to come by and execution of the ideas that do come have failed to meet my standards.
I've always said that when the time comes that I don't love doing this, I'm going to stop.
Today is that day.
I have a number of articles in the queue to finish, upon the completion of which I will be taking a hiatus from writing in order to recharge my creative juices. I could return in two weeks, two months, two years or never... I don't really know.
Other than not seeing my byline in blog articles or features, this website will continue to operate as it (ab)normally does. I will still be answering emails, moderating comments, operating the Twitter account and posting any articles that my beloved MikeE, JohnH, Misnomer, Blackjacker and Mac78130 submit. I might spend some time trying to wrangle the long in process responsive website redesign that ate my life.
Additionally, I've filed for a temporary leave of absence from the Vegas Gang Podcast. I love Hunter and Dave like brothers, and look forward to rejoining them on the greatest Vegas podcast ever as soon as I can.
VIMFP is still happening and I will be posting news updates about that stuff as available.
Hugs and kisses,
- your friendly neighborhood Chuckmonster
