Focused No More ...



I think it's time to sling my duffel over my shoulder and walk away.

It's obvious to anyone reading that the quality and frequency here has declined in a steady slope since this past summer. A lot has to do with general workload here at Casa Fossen, but that's not the real reason I'm closing up shop.

My original intent was to have an outlet for honing my writing. However, as I resumed my theatre career after a near decade-long retirement I realized that my creative passion lies there. Writing was a good substitute, but at the end of the day, it's just that: a substitute. It's not the real thing ... at least not my real thing.

This isn't an angry farewell to the WeboComicsBlogoNet or to the artform. I just need to be "focusing" my energies elsewhere. I've come to thoroughly enjoy this community, and hope that I have contributed something to it. I'll still be lurking around, reading and commenting when and where I can. I'll also be making infrequent contributions to the excellent gaming blog 5WG.

I'll miss reading the Totality but your reasons are sound. Best wishes on your theatre career! You're one of the good guys.

Jeffrey Hardy Quah said...

Ah damn, that sucks. I'll miss this blog; it's one of the smarter ones in the comics blogosphere. Good luck with your theatre work!

Johanna said...

I'm so sorry to hear this, because I'll miss your writing, but best of luck with the theater!

Guy LeCharles Gonzalez said...

I suspected this day might be coming soon. But kudos to you on reviving the acting juices!

Don't be a stranger.

nicholas reed said...

Good night, and good luck, sir.

Matthew E said...

It's getting to the point where the blogs that aren't being done anymore are better than the ones that are. Good luck and don't be a stranger.

Dan said...

It's been fun. Good luck.

redlib said...

Thanks for great bloggin'. Good night, sir.

Mark Fossen said...

Thanks for all the good wishes, everyone. I must say - writing 52 words is easier than memorizing lines!

(If I learned one thing blogging in the Larry Young era ... it's staying on message. :) )

Shane Bailey said...

Damn, that sucks. You know I loved the blog and I'm sad to see it go. You were one of my favorites of generation 3-4-5 whatever. I hope you enjoy your theater career. I'll miss TGIF and 52 on 52 most of all.

Greg said...

What a wuss - you couldn't even finish the 52 updates! Sheesh - I'm not even reading the book and I checked in for that!

Good luck with the acting. That's more fun anyway!

A. Hunt said...

But did you win the Toys R Us shopping spree?

jcarter said...

Ah man! I feel like I just discovered this blog... ah well, I'll just have to get cast into a show you're working on, and we can have long comic discussions backstage.

Elayne said...

Dang. I just added you to my regular reading list. My timing obviously sucks, and because It's All About Me it somehow led you to leave. :)

Don't be a stranger - good luck with all your future endeavors!

Joe Infurnari said...

Sorry to hear the news, Mark. You've had a great run and I'm sure the comicsblogosphere would love to have you back whenever you are so inclined. I've enjoyed reading your blog and hope to see you reach an even greater acclaim in theatre. Good luck in all your future adventures, Mark.
