I'm done

Yup. I'm hanging up my screenwriting shoes. Why? I'm just beat. I've been at this thing for years now (11), and it's gotten me nowhere. Zilch. Nada. Had a few close calls but nothing ever came of anything.

I told my managers earlier today, and they understood where I was coming from. They left the door open if I decide to try again, but I can tell you that that will not be happening.

So, the plan is to pretty much stick with the regular job and concentrate on the family. Because really, I'm sick of the constant disappointment in this dead-end pipe dream.

Later.

Yeah, right. Like I'd quit writing. I'll be writing until I croak.

Well done though, I haven't been April Fooled for years.

I haven't been to your site in a while and this was the first thing I saw. Right after I hit comments and my browser was making the jump I thought, "April fucking Fools!"

Good one, real good.
