I really don’t want to give up. I don’t even want to take a break. But the problem is, I might actually need one.

100 days is a long time for a project like this, but I was up for the challenge. I planned it in June, before I moved to Louisiana.

Then, of course, my car got destroyed on the way down. Instead of July being a month of getting back on my feet financially, it was a month of figuring out how to get another car and putting money into that just so I can be mobile again (which will help with getting a job).

It’s now August and so, it’s now time for me to get that job and make that money.

I could throw a bunch of other “excuses” at you but the truth is I am currently riddled with anxiety and depression and stress, and this project is adding to it. It’s been taking up a lot of time that I absolutely need to use on other things so that I can survive. I started this to get myself used to posting, and already it has done that. I have put a lot out there that I usually would never see the light of day (for better or for worse).

Writing takes a lot of time, and a good portion of that time is spent editing and, for me, digesting what I’ve written. At this point I do not have the kind of time to do what I really wanted to achieve with this project.

That said, I don’t want to let y’all down completely. So here’s what I’m going to do:

I’ve been at this project for 3 weeks now. 100 days is a little over 14 weeks. So for the rest of the rest of those 11 weeks, I’m going to be sure to post at least once a week. I realize that’s a lot less, but it’s what I feel is practical for what I’m going through right now.

Thanks so much to those of you who have been following along and to those of you who have donated. I made enough to keep the site up, which was part of the aim. Thanks also to all the support you’ve supplied, and to those who kept me going and to those who told me it was okay to stop.

Hopefully in the future I can take on another 100 day project (I’m hoping to do it with art next time). But in the meantime, thanks again, and I’ll see ya next week.
