His name is Tbone, the Ranting Brony and recently he read "I Didn't Know Nala Could Do That..." in exchange for donations!
I have no idea what that story was about, but by the look of his comment after reading it, it was definitely Not Safe for Work and I think he lost some sanity too.

Hey everypony! Wow, it's been almost a year since I've been on here. But I've got a new story!
Check it out! It's a short read at about 10-20 minutes and it details Lyra's disturbing dream where she discovers of a town of faceless ponies underneath Ponyville.

88w, 4dMy impression upon reading daunting pro writing advice with one week left to submit my novel synopsis and first 2500 words2 comments · 170 views
(statistics from Writersdigest.com)
Some numbers from one tutorial where they explained how many queries they received and how many new clients were signed:
In 2010, one publisher reported
36,000 queries were received
839 first pages were requested and read
98 full manuscripts were then requested and read
9 new clients were signed
From 36,000 to 9.
That's 1 in 4000 who make it.
That's like saying that one person is chosen from a place no bigger than a small town to be the special one to represent all the others.
1 in 4000.
I have to find some way to separate myself from all the others. I know my story is a very special one. But how to show that to others?
It's very daunting to say the least.
I need to become a better writer. I need to understand the business aspects better. i need to be able to write on a more regular basis and still be able to enjoy life and time with friends so that I won't completely drive myself up the wall (maybe halfway up the wall).
"Hard work beats talent if talent doesn't work hard." Forgot who said that.
I'd like to think talent is earned.
Gotta get to it.
