The Real LJ Idol - Season 11 - Week 26 - Sawubona

Six and a half years ago, when I was still in another decade of my life, I allowed halfshellvenus to talk me into signing up for this crazy game o' writing called therealljidol. Three full seasons and two mini seasons later, I've written hundreds of pieces of fiction. I'm pushing 150 weeks of survival now, what with my own writing and that under various guises. That first season I was a finalist! And have finished in the top five since. Well, maybe not that horrid bloody Season of the Long Knives, but I'm pretty sure it was the top six then.

I'm tired. My goat-footed Muse has long begged off and is now wandering some Elysian Field waiting impatiently for me to join him.

For myraid reasons that are too eye-stabbity self-involved to subject you all to reading about, I've decided to sacrifice myself upon the altar built of words this week. I don't like having to do this, but I can see the writing on the wall in here and I really have no choice out here. I hope my ignoble disembowelment buys one of you Good Writers another week to wade into the fray.

In keeping with this week's wonderful prompt -
Merry Meet
Merry Part
Merry Meet Again
