The Familiar by Mark Z. Danielwski was planned to have 27 parts, but only 5 were released.

Aside from that, there are a bunch of HP Lovecraft stories that were canceled, in a sense. Things like Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath or The Case of Charles Dexter Ward were only released posthumously because HPL thought they weren't good enough to see the light of day.

I'm too shy/awkward to ask for a spotter, plus I prefer working out when the gym is absolutely empty. My method for self preservation is to leave the clamps off of the ends so I can dump the weights if needed. I wouldn't do this if the gym was packed and I risked hurting other people, but this has legit saved my life multiple times (because there was no one around to help)
