A decision

I've made a decision that I cannot be on four fanfiction lists that demand dues, no matter how far apart they may be.  I am staying with my original fanfiction site, SentinelAngst, only because that is the one I've been with the longest.  There may be a decision to abandon that in the future, but for now, it will remain.  I have always known deep in my heart that I was NOT a writer, although I have given a stellar performance of such over the years since I began writing fanfic. 
I honestly don't know what my mind was thinking when I joined three other lists that required dues.  I think my initial success as a writer must have gone to my head, thinking others really did want to read what I would write.  I know now that that statement is a falsehood.  Very few people read what I write.  Of course, I tell myself that I've always written fanfic for my own enjoyment, and I do enjoy writing.  But with four lists demanding dues, writing became more of chore than an enjoyment. 
I do want to thank Lyn for her continued support of my writing efforts, including the fact that she has given my stories a home at Brothers in Arms.  Plus the fact that she has beta'd a lot of my stories, making them better in the long run.
I will not be abandoning Sentinel fanfic any time in the future.  I just need to pull back and get things prioritized in my mind and hope that my muse will return someday, so that I can write the type of stories that will be worthy of being called an author.

I just wanted to tell you that I'll miss you on those lists and to let you know that I've always enjoyed your stories and hope you'll continue to write them

Thank you for the kind words, Annie :) I just couldn't handle four lists that required dues as my muse has run off and I can't seem to find it. I have an awful feeling that I'm going to be reduced to drabbles and possibly even poetry. {{shudder}}
