"Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light." -Dylon Thomas.

He lent back in his chair after deleting the sixth rewrite of the profile page, and smacked his palm to his forehead in frustration.

"I don't get it," he complained to his friends, "why can't I write this?"

Silence answered him, because his friends were imaginary, and he was alone.

"Maybe I should just write the stories, forget the profile." He thought.

But he couldn't do that. He'd be the only one on Protagonize without a profile description.

"Maybe I should tell them I write just to put my imagination to paper, but not actually to create" He mused. "Maybe I should tell them that my writing is more for fun and a creative vent, than anything serious."

"Maybe I should tell them that I go through stages where I don't write for months. Or maybe I should tell them that my last few collaborations have fallen because I'm terribly inconsistent."

"Maybe I should apologize for that." (Sorry!)

Maybe that'll do.
