Just got a note from my editor stating that they are dropping my chapter. They attributed it to page count, but I know it was from my continued emails stating lack of interest, laced with negative connotations. Of course, I received it in the middle of writing a follow up email saying that I could buckle down over the weekend to finish up the loose ends. Regardless, I promptly deleted my draft.
One down, two to go…
Or so it seems. The further retreatment I take from the industry, I still get the same amount of emails requesting I do something. Hopefully by October, I’ll be so far removed from all the Flash lists and forums that no one will even remember I exist. I can hibernate for the winter, and then bust some frikin caps in the Spring.
I still say “maybe” to all opportunities that arise, but unless it’s a walk in the park with a timeframe to match, shove it. I’m burnt, and there recently other areas in which it behooves me to spend my time. It may negatively affect others with my lack of help on the lists and forums, but in the long run it’s better for all.
