Is it better to burn out, or just fade away?

>Leave 'em still wanting more.

I'll go along with that.

So many great TV shows are cut short and then held in the "classics" or "cult" status.

Better for you or better for the reader? Sometimes they can't tell*, unless you storm out slamming the door loudly behind you. "Whatever happened to John? He used to post all the time." "Oh, didn't you hear? He died in 2012."


* I know of two forums where deceased members get a new custom rank of "beloved emeritus/emerita". But otherwise you wouldn't know-- especially if you yourself were absent for a while.

A true burn out precludes the possibility of fading away (except as a puff of smoke).

Burn out, then rise from the ashes and start anew.
