Congratulations to everyone! I’m sorry to be leaving, it’s been a lot of fun seeing what amazing things you have all been up to every week. It came down to me simply not being able to juggle this, my hectic day job and writing. I’ll still be around though, and I’ll still look forward to hearing about all your writing successes. Good luck to you all, and keep writing those awesome flashfics!
