It is not with sadness, but melancholy, that we at From The Write Angle announce we are disbanding, inter-marrying and moving into condominiums.
Wait, that was Doonesbury.
We have only been the imaginings of an autistic boy looking into a snow globe. … No, that was St.Elsewhere.
The war is over – nope, M*A*S*H.
We can’t continue because we’ve been jailed for criminal indifference. We haven’t, that was the characters of Seinfeld, but maybe we should all do a little time for that offense.
What we’re trying to say is we are moving on.
From The Write Angle began in 2011 on the premise that we are often best helped not by those who have reached the top of the climb, but by our peers just a rung or two ahead of us. As a collection of writers at different levels on the ladder, we offered our thoughts from our point of view, our angle.
But our angles have changed. Each of us has kept to our own climb, which now takes us away from this blog.
For our readers who have journeyed with us, thank you. We hope we have helped. For those who have just found us, we leave behind these articles not as sage advice, but just as clues, hints, of how we got where you are now, with the hope that they will guide you toward a better tomorrow.
And we wish that your success will one day inspire others.
In the comments of this post each of the contributors to From The Write Angle, past and present, will write a little something about where they were when they joined us, and where they are now. After that, the automatic lights will go out. This blog will be dark.
But as soon as someone walks through the door, the lights will click on.
If you are a budding writer who has stumbled on this anew, please keep posting comments. We’ll be listening.
