I have decided that my participation at Lit.Org has passed the point of diminishing returns, and that it is no longer practical for me to publish my writings here.

Primarily, I valued this site because of its capacity to provide informed critique of my work and my ideas, and I have seen that my readers, while growing quickly, are not making any critique whatsoever. The reasons for this I do not know for certain, but this essentially negates the value of my participation on this site, for myself.
Second, I believe it is time to fully concentrate on getting published, which means writing the stuff that GETS published. For a variety of reasons including the above, I believe Lit.Org is no longer useful to me in this regard, and I should move on.
This does not mean at all that I will _never_ submit anything here again, and I shall certainly announce publications of my work - should such fortune occur - but since the usership of the site is not interested in commenting on my work I don't think Lit.Org can any longer help me to improve it.
This is not a reflection on Lit.Org, which cannot and does not control the participation of its usership! It is also not a condemnation of the usership nor even a criticism, but simply a practical explanation of why I am going to change venues for my output.
Thank you all for your insights and your friendship, and I shall certainly leave my material online here for future perusal. Feel free to contact me should you desire to do so.
