This may very well be the most difficult blog I’ll ever have to write. It is with tears in my eyes and a destitute heart that I bring you the news that the Inkpunks have disbanded.
I have been given the task of delivering this devastating news to you, our loyal friends, fans and followers.
I am even more upset to report that it was not an amicable split. There were many issues, but the pinnacle of all of it was a conflict between those in the group who are editors in addition to being authors and those who are authors.
I dare not tell you all the details, to quote my favourite elf, “for me, the grief is still too near.” There were things said by both sides that perhaps should not have been said, it’s true. Things such as THOSE HORRIBLE EDITORS AND THEIR GATEKEEPING ELITISM and THOSE WHINING MALICIOUS STALKING AUTHORS were perhaps not the most professional expression of emotions, yet, there they were.
Things escalated until it seemed no resolution could be reached. As the one who brought most of us together in the first place, Christie “the evil Overlordess” Yant finally spoke up and lowered the boom of doom upon the group, declaring it disbanded.
Cue the fat lady. This will be the final blog, but not the final word. While I am announcing this on behalf of the entire group, I do not begin to speak for each individual and would invite them to voice whatever it is they wish to express at this time in the comments.
Good-bye, dear readers. To my ex-inkpunks, you are all the most terrible, unsupportive, uncreative, talentless, selfish and uncaring people I have ever met in my life. I hate you all.
