I’m afraid I owe you an apology. I have been neglecting you lately, I know. Like a houseplant or a pet you desire interaction, and must have your nutrients and my time to be happy and thrive, and I have been spending my time with a different love.
This may be hard for you to hear, but I feel I must say it, just get these guilty feelings out so I can clear the air! So, yes, I have been neglecting you in order to spend quality time with my manuscript. She’s so creative and beautiful, and I find that the more time I spend with her the better she gets, and the more rounded a writer I become.
So, I just want to say that our relationship has to be whittled down to, I hope, a mutual friendship. I just need a little space to work on my relationship with my manuscript and see where that will take me…Us.
Just remember, you can rely on me still, as a friend, a shoulder to cry on, whatever you need. I promise to visit periodically, but I don’t feel it is fair to you to stay in a close relationship…for now.
It’s not you, it’s me.
I’ll be seeing you around.
