They seek him here…
Well, actually, it’s Thorn who’s been doing the seeking. While I thought he was playing his own version of Where’s Waldo (Emerson), he assures me, by the magic of email, that he’s been chomping at the bit to get back on the website. Only the techno-gremlins are keeping him out. He has now taken to wearing disguises when he tries to log-on. His Scarlet Pimpernel outfit is particularly fetching – in fact he fetched it out of a dumpster.
So, to all of you who keep the faith and wave that AWwYP torch in the dead of night, we salute you. It’s a flame that still burns strong in our hearts and our pens, and it’s cheaper than paying a Con Ed bill.
If you’ve been missing the hustle and bustle of your favo(u)rite writing site, don’t despair. Use that valuable time to craft new writing and practice your contest technique. Now that the Mayan prophecy has bitten the dust (the absence of a year zero notwithstanding), we are planning for the future: new contests, new services and new books to immerse yourself in.
The future’s so bright, we gotta wear lampshades. It must be those torches you’re carrying for us.
