Four years ago I had this great idea to start a Yahoo group designed to help people write their life stories. “QuickWrit” was born. For a short time I sent out daily prompts guiding members to write something about their life. At the time I was in Argentina accompanying my hubby on a month-long business trip with our six month old baby. With the stress of travel and being a new mom I ended up stopping the posts.
It was a fun idea, but in the end I just wasn’t ready for the daily commitment to send out prompts. I felt guilty about not having the drive or energy to complete my own assignments. I also became frustrated that after what I thought was a lot of effort, I couldn’t manage to attract more members.
Last week I received a spam message that came from the dead but not deleted group of “QuickWrit.” It was like seeing a ghost, I hadn’t thought about the group in years. That message was enough to help me decide it was time to close the group. Yesterday I pulled the plug, the group is now officially dead. I’ve invited the members to come and check out the material here on the blog. I would love to somehow make it up to them after deserting them so long ago.
If any of my QuickWrit friends managed to make it here, please let me know in the comments!
