I quit the Scene today. There was a lot of weird stuff going on, but then there was some bullshit, and, well, either I mean the things I say or I don’t. And if I mean the things I say, then I don’t work for a guy I think is a dumbass lacking in good judgement.
I haven’t really processed it yet. I don’t know what it means for me. I’m sad but also relieved. But a lot sad.
I love the people at the Scene and I have so much respect for the hard work they do. And I’m going to miss the fuck out of being their peer.
I’m sorry, I’ve always enjoyed your writing there and I live several states away! But there’s no point staying if it’s turned to crap. Maybe it will get back to good someday.
Based on previous performance, some of the people you love there won’t be there much longer anyway.
I’m sorry you aren’t going to be writing there, but I’m proud of you for stepping away and doing what’s best for you. People with principles are lacking in this world, and I’m always glad to stand by someone who sticks firmly to her own.
Not to be al woowoo about it, but perhaps this is the Universe making room for you to write your book.
I have gotten more work on it done these past two days than I have most of July…
