Goodbye to Mike Kimera

I've been Mike Kimera for nine years now. I've learned a lot in the process. I've even written a few things that I think were worth writing.

I need to stop being Mike Kimera for a while and just be me.

Mike Kimera has become someone that is more comfortable with himself than I should be at the moment.

I've made a mess of my life and I should be using all my energies to make things better.

Thank you to all of you have read my pieces over the years, especially those of you who took the time to comment on my stories.

I wish well

I'm so sorry.

And so damn sad.

I don't know what else to say, other than I shall miss you terribly.

Mike, how truly sad. I've read your meandering words for close to nine years and even though I rarely comment, you've been an inspiration, as Mike, and as the man who created Mike. Thank you for sharing this part of yourself with us all, for being the obstinate, wordy, often confusing and always interesting man that you are. I wish you speedy return to the net and the friends you may not even know you've garnered. You will be missed.

i'm very very sad to hear this. your writing has always been a model of how erotic fiction should be written. thank you for all your wonderful writing. you've been an excellent teacher. i hope one day to read new work from you in some incarnation again. i'm sorry about life's mess but understand that there are times when we have to pay attention to that over the mess of our imaginations.

It is rare for me to connect with a writer, and, although I only discovered you two years ago, I really had the feeling that your work touched me. You hit just the right spot inside my mind.
I'm sorry to learn about the fact you are withdrawing. But then maybe one day you will be back...
Goodbye and good luck.

You know we'll miss you. Come back when you can.

I have a tendency to lurk. I look and occasionally I actually see. Only very occasionally do I feel compelled to interact. On ERWA I would skim to find you first before delving into the general postings because you touch me. You will be missed more than you will ever know. I could cry. Please come back to us when you have found yourself, repaired the rifts, and once again find yourself comfortable in whatever skin you are inhabiting. Thank you.

Is it possible to write your way out of your mess?

Jodie said...

As a ERWA reader, I will miss you! Best wishes on getting your life together. Come back to us when you can.

Best of luck. I have been a fan of your writing for five years or so. Your writing has helped me tap into things in myself, and I'm really appreciative. Again, best of luck.

Sometimes a break is good. Much happiness to you, "Mike". I've enjoyed your inspirations and challenges.
