To Evan Erwin,
I regret to announce that I am dropping out of the talent search.
An overload of tasks at my job combined with a full weekend’s worth of homework at school have made me unable to meet next week’s deadline. I also realize that this is bound to happen again while I am working and studying at the same time, and therefore I would be at high risk of missing deadlines even if I did manage to win my category.
And come to think of it, the other judges didn’t think so highly of my writing so far, which means I would probably have lost anyway. [sour grapes]
To the fans of “Lotus Cobra is Evil”, it will continue in December after my final exam.
Sorry for all the trouble, and give my blessing to the remaining contestants.
