Changing the world's opinion… as soon as we finish this math homework
It’s true. After nearly four years of existence, TCWT is closing its doors. As rewarding as this blog has been for me, I feel that it has run its course, and it’s time to formally end it.
Though I know each of you has followed us for varying lengths of time–some since the beginning–I hope that, no matter what, TCWT has helped you in some small way to feel inspired, to meet other cool teen writers, or at least to know that you aren’t alone.
I can’t thank you guys enough for all that you’ve done–for commenting on our posts, for participating in our contests, and above all for listening to me ramble these past few years. This blog has been a big part of my life for a long time, and I’m so happy that I get to view it as time well spent. That’s all because of you. So thank you, thank you, thank you.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be cleaning up the site archives and possibly updating the blog’s layout so that any newcomers to the blog can easily access all of the posts we’ve written. (I’ve already deleted many of the old contest posts, since they’ve been confusing those who don’t realize that the contests already ended.) But beyond that, the blog will stay as is, and I hope it will continue to help any teen writers who stumble across it.
I don’t think I have much else to say. Just: thanks. I never imagined this blog would grow to be as big as it is, and I’m so happy to have interacted with all of you. I can’t wait to walk into a bookstore one a day and to see your books lining the shelves. Keep writing–and best of luck!
P.P.S. You guys are awesome. Don’t forget that.
