All Good Things Must Come to an End

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful. ~Mae West

It’s been fun.

More importantly, it’s been educational.

~Hannibal and Murdock, “The A-Team”


Today, I think, is the third anniversary of P&Q. Over 400 posts, thousands of tags, roughly 2500 subscribers, and three Freshly Pressed honors.

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s officially time for P&Q to retire.

Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy blogging; I enjoy writing (at least, I keep telling myself that I do.) I’ve met so many amazing friends through blogging whom I otherwise never would have known. I’ve enjoyed it for three years now…but the fire in the belly is no longer there. It’s time to move on.

I am still planning on writing. In fact I’m in the slow process of writing a book, which is why I need the extra time. I’ve come to the conclusion that the end result is the important part, not the number of copies I may sell or fans I may earn. I’ve been saying for over thirty years now that I should write a book. And I’m going to do it.

Of course I’d like to thank all of you loyal readers for your tireless support. Although I can’t possibly give a shout out to everyone, I’d especially like to thank Piper Bayard, Susie Lindau, The Heretic, Jamie (The Tousled Apostle), and the rest of my wonderful Regular Commenters. You guys are amazing and all very talented writers. Please stay in touch, and I’ll be sure to check in on your blogs when I can.

The archives will stay put as they are. If anyone would like to use any of the material, please do so as long as it is cited.

My loyal readers, it’s been an honor and a privilege to be with you these last three years. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, and I’ve seen a whirlwind of changes in my life while writing here at P&Q. I’m just glad I got to share even a little of it with you.

The site mascot, having been declared sane at last (we think), is now living in an undisclosed location in the proximity of my home. He wishes everyone happiness and lots of scrum-diddly-umptious treats.

Oh, and if you’d like to stay in touch, drop me a line at

So, my dear readers, Auf Wiedersehen, Au Revoir, Hasta la Vista. If and when my book is done you’ll be the first to know.

With my warmest regards,

“Howling Mad” Heather

  1. Girl, I’m going to miss your wonderful, whimsical words, that’s for sure. But I know that book is going to be an even greater way to invest your talent for writing. I look forward to the finished product….and perhaps the chance to be a beta reader!??!?!

  2. I will miss you and your posts!

    Please stay in touch, and keep everyone updated.

  3. Good luck with your plans! You should still keep the site. You never know when your humor will need an outlet. Bon chance!

  4. I am so sorry to hear that you won’t be blogging. BUMMER! I always loved reading your fun posts. Thanks so much for all the support you gave me. I’ve had some health issues and am just getting back into the swing of things.
    It must be so hard to find time to write your book and blog when you have a full time job. I can barely find the time and I don’t have a job!!!!

    Please stay in touch. If you ever come to Colorado, email me!

  5. All the best to you, Heather. I look forward to your book. 🙂

  6. Thank you for the great company.
    You will be missed.

  7. Sad news for your readers 😦 I’ll miss your blog, but good luck with the book. I shall stay subscribed in case you change your mind, or decide to resurrect this blog, or post a link to a new one you might start to market your book when it is written!

  8. Heather, I’m sorry to hear this. I do understand, though – I gave up blogging about a year ago. I don’t really miss it either. P&Q is lovely. I will honestly miss it, but hope to see you around the A-Team fandom still. And I want to read that book one day.

  9. Hey, good luck with the book! When it’s finished, maaaaybe resurrect P&Q so you can let us know where to find it? Thanks for all the great posts!

  10. Best of luck to you!

  11. I am very sorry that I returned to blogging only to find you had left it.

    I am very sad to see you go, but I wish you the best of luck with the book. I have pretty much the same plan for 2014.

    I was lovely meeting/reading you, and I wish you all the best.
