    So I've started writing

    Yeah. So I've started writing again. It isn't anything pony but it's still writing nonetheless. I recently reread this crime/suspense novel about this psychotic serial rapist/murderer and I got to thinking, "Maybe I should try something like this."

    So just a few hours ago, I wrote the first paragraph. I dunno if I'll write much more of it but I am proud of the paragraph I did write. It's writhing in nasty. It's pretty great.

    Anyway, how are people lately?

    So hey again

    So I'm thinking of quitting my current job and trying to find something else. My level of dissatisfaction with my job has reached new lows and I just can't see how my minimal pay is really worth it anymore. I'm angry at management and I get angry at customers and I'm constantly dreading going back the next day and I'm depressed and it sucks and I hate it and I just don't think any amount of money should be worth this. But I can't quit because my car insurance is fucking ridiculous and all the money I'm making is going towards that.

    And I've gotten into a bit of a quarrel with a dear friend of mine and now I'm confused, even more depressed, anxious, and just tired and worn out. I feel like there are daggers in my heart. I'm forcing myself to eat because even though I've had hardly anything in the last 24 hours and I'm considerably hungry, I don't even like eating. So I forced myself to make a sandwich about an hour ago and I managed to get that down but now I just feel all kinds of empty.

    And I haven't logged on in weeks, I have no idea how my group is doing, and one of my admins has asked to resign. It's not good for me right now. I just want to sleep.

    Logging on

    When I log on, I like to go around and take peeks at old faces and posters who I used to know back in the day only to find that they've either retired or vanished without a trace. It feels like visiting a group of old friends only to realize all I see are tombstones. And I suddenly feel very old and lonely.

    Feeling a bit guilty

    I feel a little guilty for having left The House on Mayberry Hill alone for so long. It's not something I enjoy. Writing used to be so fun. I wonder when/how/why it turned into a chore. I remember sitting in front of my computer for hours just typing away at something. I'd be so enveloped in what I'd write that I'd become disconnected from the real world. Writing was so much fun. I wonder why I stopped. It seems so long ago and so far away, I feel so guilty and ashamed of myself that I let this happen.

Around Ponyville, there is a story about the abandoned home that sits atop Mayberry Hill. According to the legend, the grand old house is home to a tale whose truth that like its inhabitants, has become lost to time. When Twilight Sparkle hears of the legend, she goes to seek the truth. But as she delves deeper into the past, she uncovers a story that is riddled with love and death.

Calling it now, Granny Smith and Rarity. :rainbowlaugh:

#3 · 140w, 2d ago · · · Prologue ·

>>208789

The whole romance of the story will play an integral part in the entire history of the house and the story of it.

But that's all I'm revealing :raritywink:

Sorry for the wait but here's the new chapter

#6 · 138w, 3d ago · · · The House ·

Found this in The Writer's Group and decided to give it a try.

I'm glad I did that too. I'm sensing a lot of suspense coming from this story... It will certainly evolve into something nice.

Your writing is simply wonderful (better than my own) and you clearly know how to grasp your reader's attention and how/where to lead the story.

(Now I wonder why stories like yours aren't recognized, while shitty cupcakes spin-offs or HiEtP Mary Sue, self-inserts make fame)

Tracked and [heavily] recommended.

Wow. That is the best comment I have EVER gotten :pinkiehappy: :pinkiehappy:

You've just given me a HUGE boost of willingness to work on the second chapter and all subsequent chapters. I cannot thank you enough for that :yay:

(And on a side note: Yeah. Sometimes I also wonder why. Every reason I think of just seems to slip away before I can grasp it. It is a bit disheartening :applecry:)

CONGRATULATIONS ON GETTING FEATURED IN EQD :yay:

#9 · 134w, 4d ago · · · Incident on Corner Lane ·

Chapter 5 is supposed to be called a "Description," right? I'll give this a look later. Congratulations on making it onto EQD. :twilightsmile:

congrats on getting onto EqD :twilightsmile:

#11 · 134w, 4d ago · · · Incident on Corner Lane ·

Thanks everyone :yay:

>>353214

It sure is. Thanks for pointing out my obvious typo. I'll go change it.

#12 · 133w, 5d ago · · · The House ·

I'm enjoying it so far. Caught a couple of errors though:

- "Mayor! That's ridiculoud!" Terra cried, sitting back down in her seat.

- "If anypony has anything else to add, then say it now, if not, then i announce this meeting as fini . . . "

Close together, about halfway down.

Thanks. I'll go get those fixed. I'm glad you enjoy it :twilightsheepish:

Oh no. No no no no no. :pinkiegasp:

This has to be some wretched dream, surely! To lose the chance at truest love, mere for the seeming "I need a bad boy" whims of a steadfast Rose, to now lose every shred of meaning in the rest of his life? Joe must be the instrument of the devil. What of Tinker? Being the elderly of the two, surely he must be dead..? To have Joe run wild?

Alexander, for two short chapters, these were brilliant. Sigh! :pinkiehappy:

:trollestia:

Glad you liked them :pinkiehappy:

#16 · 127w, 9h ago · · · Leaving ·

Mm. So it goes - tragedy strikes and an opportunity beckons. I'm glad Tinker survived the stampede! Another excellent chapter, Alexander. Sigh! You have a decided knack for painting a plain, hard, rural life & how little there's kindness in that. Haunted, yet so very romantic. Can't wait to read more!

You're too kind :twilightsheepish:

I'm glad you enjoy it.

This story is getting interesting, I like where this is going! :pinkiehappy:

A shame that you abandoned this. :applejackunsure:
