Stick a Fork in Me, I'm Done

Well, my devoted Cake Eater readers, I'm going on hiatus.

I was actually going to start my hiatus next week, but you'll have noticed the dearth of posting lately, it's probably just as well that I do this now.

Now, now, don't be despondent, my devoted Cake Eater readers. Think of all the crap posts I'm sparing you in the meantime.

There are two things that have led to this decision. First, I am just not interested in blogging right now. I'm tired of this vain little world the blogosphere has become. I'm sick of the preening, the posturing, of the bottle of success only opening and filling the glass of the best link whores. I'm sick of it. I know it shouldn't bother me; I've tried not to let it bother me, but you can only churn out content for so long without any payoff.

Second, I have other things I want to expend my energy on. Yes, that means another manuscript. After the last one spontaneously combusted, leaving only a smoldering pile of shit in its place, it's taken a bit to work myself up to it, but I'm readying myself for another go-round on the Novel Carousel (TM). Now this is the same carousel where---ahem--- if you suck, you're forcibly ejected! I haven't the time or energy to expend on blogging if I want to---ahem---actually write something that will sell. I'm tired of writing novels that don't make me any money, because, my devoted Cake Eater Readers, I want to be sitting on a beach sometime soon, being fed bon-bon's by Javier the thong-wearing, well-greased, cabana boy---and that's not going to happen unless I've got lots of coin.

So, I bid you au revoir, my devoted Cake Eater readers. I will be back.


Probably in the summer.

I'll miss you, Kathy. And I don't think its been crap lately.

Best of luck with the book and I look forward to your triumphant return!

The blogosphere is a fickle creature, and it will always be here, should you feel the need to grace us with your snarkiness.

Go forth and be brilliant, dahling.

Damn. Well, I'll miss you.

I suppose somebody else will become my first click of the morning. I understand what you mean about the blogosphere. Sometimes it doesn't really seem worth it.

I hope you are so inspired by the muses that you write a best-seller in record time.

Take care,

Good luck with the writing. I'll check back in periodically to see if you post anything. Hopefully, you'll have a burst of creativity & then you can come on & blog about the new book (just like Instapundit).

Best of luck to you! Thanks again for inspiring me to make my first turkey some time ago!

You'll still on the list for MOB wine tastings. Hopefully we'll have another one when the weather is nicer.

Enjoy your break! I didn't post one word while I was in Mexico and I'm glad I didn't.

Best wishes to you, Kathy...

May you indeed produce that Great American Novel.

Margaret Mitchell, look out!

Oh, Kathy, heard and understood completely.

With your talent, brilliance and wit you *will* be published!

Hope to see you around, my friend.

AND, I'll be talking to you!!

Have a wonderful hiatus :)

Greasy Javier's bonbons ain't all they're cracked up to be (and neither is that thong up what's his crack). Just the same, enjoy the break and please let the muse lead you back to us.

Can't wait for you to recharge your batteries and get back in the fight. Thanks for the blogging pointers when I was left alone at The Llama Butchers while Steve-O and Robbo were goofing off.
