Guys, I have some bad news. Jeff, I hope my e-mail got through about this.
I just started a full time job that will finally let me get my own place. I also now have a long-distance girlfriend that I did not have when this whole thing started. Unfortunately, as my hours go through the roof and I struggle to balance my gal, my attempts to move out, apply for graduate school, and searches for more relevant and better-paying jobs, I have very little time for any of my hobbies, let alone the sidebar projects of those hobbies.
This is frankly the first time I've been able to take more than a cursory glance at the good old B&C for awhile.
As much as I was looking forward to starting this wonderful journey with you all, I simply do not have the energy and time to manage it. My first draft was already so lacking due to the time crunch that I would have normally scrapped it and started over, but I felt I had to turn in something.
I am especially frustrated with this situation as the idea of a Fanthology was mine to begin with, and not only was I unable to man the helm when Brother Tyler and the Mods expected me to by default, but I am now not even able to participate in the first round of it. Granted, me not leading the way has only benefited us, as Jeff knows more what he's doing than I ever have. Which is why I apologize in a more personal way to both him and Ludo, because I was supposed to help Ludo with his story and now cannot, and Jeff now has an organisational issue.
Again, I regret having to throw in the towel here, but I really don't see any other options.
Without Him, there is Nothing.
