I have decided to stop writing for Gnome Stew, and this time the decision is permanent. This time though I want to end things differently, by asking for your input as to what my final articles should be.
Why Stop Writing for the Site?
I set some goals for myself in regards to my contributions to Gnome Stew, and I have managed to accomplish them all. Combine these personal goals with the amazing accomplishments of the Gnome Stew team and I am very proud of the results.
But now I no longer have the same amount of passion for the work. This is not to say that I am not happy with being a Gnome, because this is a great crew to work with and writing for this site is an honor. It is just that once your passion for an activity is gone it is time to stop doing it.
My passion has been replaced by a sense of contentment. I no longer feel the need to push myself, and that is both good and bad. It is good that I can walk away satisfied, but it is bad that the fire has gone out. Without that spark I do not feel that I would contribute meaningful work to this site.
Five Final Articles
Now all I want to do is end my Gnome Stew run on a high note. For that I am asking for your help.
Comment on this article with your ideas for my final five articles. Is there a past article that you want me to expand upon? Is there a topic that you always wanted me to write about? Is there something that you just want to call me out on?
I will pick the five topics that I think will be the most challenging and enjoyable to write about. I could not think of a better way to exit than to have a bit more time to interact with you, the readers of Gnome Stew, and I hope that you will take me up on this offer.
Thank you all for your many wonderful comments and insights throughout the years! I have enjoyed every moment of being a gnome, and I am sure that this site will continue to deliver great GMing advice for years to come!
