I'm giving up writing

The world doesn't need any more writers, any more poetry or any more fiction. There's far too much already. Everything that needs to be said has already been said very well. You wouldn't spend your time writing if you knew the world was about to end. So why do it now, when it is?

    Why don't you give up judging writing competitions instead?

  3. Infamy, infamy. Everybody's got it infamy.

    Actually, I might just keep up the judging, for the fun of annoying the anonymouses. I need more fun in my life.

  5. It's a process. I'm giving up writing. I'm always giving up writing and will continue to give it up until it is all given up. Now if I said I had given it up, that would be different.
