Hi, everyone--

For some time, I've desperately been needing to make adjustments to my schedule to give me more room around writing. So after a lot of thought, and with much reluctance, I've decided to step down as a moderator here at AW.

This hasn't been an easy decision--I really feel that the B&BC forum is my baby. I've been modding it for more than three years now. But I know that things are in excellent hands with CauPaux and Uncle Jim.

You aren't rid of me completely--I'm still an AW member, and I'll be lurking around B&BC, ready to drop the odd evidence or logic bomb on the latest sockpuppet. I'll just be a bit scarcer. Also, my Writer Beware activities will be continuing unchanged (including blogging), so if anyone has a question, or wants to alert me to something questionable, please email me anytime: [email protected].

I've really enjoyed being a mod, and I know I'm going to miss that active involvement. At the same time, I can already feel myself starting to breathe a sigh of relief. So I know the timing's right.

Thanks!

- Victoria

Victoria, you are a goddess :Hail: and we will miss your amazing presence. But your own life comes first! Thank you for everything. This just means I'll be checking my Writer Beware RSS feed more often. :D

I've never had to write a "Help Wanted: newly open position for Publishing Paladin-Sage" before.

Thanks so very, very much for all you do, both here and elsewhere, Victoria. You really are an inspiration.

In the immortal words of Douglas Adams: So long, and thanks for all the fish. :D

Congratulations on getting yourself some breathing room - glad to know you'll still be around!

"Thanks" and "You will be sorely missed." really aren't enough.

But, hey we're starving artists, so that's pretty much what we can do for now, you know?

A dark, evil place.
Congrats on losing the shock collar, Victoria. :D

And thanks for all you've done for so many people here.

Wishing you all the luck in the world. You've helped alot of us new authors and I thank you for that. May the muse keep you always!
I'm just stepping into the world of being a published author and without this foreum I would be lost. Thanks so much to everyone here.

You are a wise and very fair human being. I love this forum, it's helped me more than I can say in the last 6 months since I joined.

Your help and insight has been greatly appreciated, and not just by me. I'm glad you'll still be around, and I wish you nothing but good things.

Thank you again!

Nowhere. Now here.
Thank you so much for everything you do at Writer Beware and at AW. I hope this change allows plenty of time for you to hit your goals, whatever they may be!

Victoria, you've been a wonderful mod here all these years: I've watched you take all sorts of rudeness with a grace and style I know I could never equal; I've gazed in wonder as you've fielded rampant vanity publishers and never even messed your hair up.

You've helped me more than you could ever know, and I'm very grateful for that.

You'll be much missed, but you leave this place in safe and competent hands. I'll look forward to seeing you around.

Now stop reading this and go and write something!
