Adieu

In a fit of what I shall call madness, I have deleted my blog. Yes, all of it. In its entirety.
The decision may have been rash, but alas, it is final.
I was going to simply disappear, but then I realised that I would owe you an apology, all of you who have read me faithfully.
I'm sorry.
You have forced me to grow, to challenge myself, to write better. For the most part. And for that I am thankful.

My reasons?
I have been embarassed lately to find my posts dwindling into status updates (smacking of facebook and twitter). I have been unable to explore new avenues of writing, because I am writing for an audience. And some of you will agree, that to write for an audience is to write with chains gripping your arms.
So I will not be writing here anymore.
Adieu, good people. Y'all were awesome.

Adieu princess.
Its been a pleasure reading your blog. You write with a maturity and sensitivity that belie your years.
Don't stop writing wherever it is you write and maybe one day we'll be visiting Amazon to marvel at THE book by princess ;)

Merci.

Emi's said...

Noooooooo, it's not fair.

I've just started, how about writing for yourself?

Chanel said...

TRAITORS. Lazy bones

gayuganda said...

Huh Sis,

I understand. But may I say it is the wrong reaction?

That which you have written, it is part of your history. You dont need to remove it. Not realy. You go back, you think of what you want to do. And you come back. Every proud hen was once an egg, a chick. Dont need to crush the shells into non existence.

You try new insights, you anger a few people. You refuse to conform. You be yourself. You break the mold, and later look back and say, wow, that is what I used to be. Doesnt happen out of the blue!

All the best

and good searching.

Like Antipop put it: wail. Have to find new insightful, meaningful entertainment. Uuurgh.

Carlo said...

You totally suck by the way. If you're going to leave then go, leave your writing behind. Some of us are going to want to go back to your blog and read the stuff we liked. I'm so not happy with you young lady. You're a quitter and a coward. And now I'll cry myself to sleep.

Cavalier said...

Princess, I agree with Carlo.

Be silent said...

Noooooooooooooooooooo too hard to let go

Be silent said...
