End of the (Writing) Road
So, the results came back in for the Get-Together's Writing Contest, and my entry, in a word, sucked. I didn't even rank in the top half of the contest. Can't really blame the judges for this, because everything they said about the work was true. So, I'm gonna have to go out on a limb and blame Bernie Madoff my rapidly fading skills, not to mention motivation, for writing this sort of stuff. As a famous movie character once said, 'I'm getting too old for this..." well, you know the rest.
So, needless to say, my entry for the contest will remain between me and the judges... it will not see the light of day on the site. And I'm officially hanging up my hat. Clearly I've lost all the skills for writing fan fiction that I used to have (though some of the Sppf nutjobs will tell you I never had any skills to begin with ). I've seen some of the comments on what was horrible about the story, but at this point I wouldn't even know how to begin correcting them.
But I'm not out of the writing business entirely... it's just that my future works are probably not best suited for PC... take for example what I consider to be my finest piece of work ever written - a short piece affectionately titled, "Quality Suites Delivers Excellence."
So expect all my future writing endeavors to be pieces like this one, as this old-timer's skills have become so rusty it's an embarrassment. I'll still be active on other parts of the forum, so look for me there!
