That's too bad. I'm disappointed that there aren't new writers to come forward to replace the old. That's how it should work: a continuous cycle of new authors, new characters and new content, not the constant reliance on a few writers who have tried to stretch the life of their characters over a couple years.

I hope no one is taking the authors' decision to stop personally. I can't speak for the other writers, but I felt like I was doing more of a disservice to myself and to whomever read my character by trying to invent new outrageous stuff for Thomas and Dr. Balis to discuss. My big regret is that I didn't have more time to integrate my newfound knowledge of San Francisco into future sessions. Now that I've actually been to the city, I can more easily imagine TCT's home setting.

That's really a shame. I'm glad I caught Christopher Werby talking about the site on TV when I did, otherwise I would have never known about The Company Therapist. It gave me an opportunity to brush up on my writing skills and --admittedly-- my character was a secret outlet for pent up frustrations.

Good luck to all the former writers and many thanks to Christopher and Olga for giving us the opportunity to participate in a very successful project.
