This is not a blog post that I thought I'd ever have to make, and it pains me greatly to write it now, so please bear with me.
It is with a saddened heart that I must announce the passing of my dear friend, and fellow author, Wayne, aka @comicfan
He's gone by many titles on GA over the years, though most of you may know him as the "prompt guru" who posted prompts every Friday to help get the writing juices flowing. Wayne was definitely one of a kind, and never had a bad word to say about anyone. Whether you'd known him for years, or barely met him, he would always have a kind word to say.
Gay Authors will definitely not be the same without him. He was a friend to everyone and he touched many people with his words, whether just in passing or in his stories. He had the biggest heart of anyone I know. If you were having a rough time, he was there, and if you were part of his card list, you might get a postcard or a card in the mail, just letting you know you weren't alone and that he was thinking of you.
I truly never met anyone like him, and I will forever miss my friend.
For the remainder of the week, all staff blogs will be put on pause as we remember this wonderful person who left the world far to soon.
Please feel free to share your memories of Wayne in the comments.
