Octavia Philharmonica is a desperate mare. Her involvement in the ill-fated "pony pokey" at the prestigious Grand Galloping Gala has left her blacklisted among the elite of Canterlot who form her clientele.

I'm attending BronyCon this year in Baltimore. It'll be my second con, after I attended TrotCon in my home state of Ohio earlier this year. Are any of my awesome followers and readers planning on attending? Got any tips? Interested in meeting up?

Well, it has officially been way too long since I was active on working on any of my stories. There's been a lot of distractions lately; graduating college, looking for a new job and dealing with generic life drama being the real-life issues sucking up my time and energy. I've also been neglecting writing time so that I can reread the Game of Thrones series and catch up on some of my followed fics that have been languishing (I'm finally down from 110 to 51 unread chapters.) I've also been starting to game again, between League of Legends, Bioshock and Minecraft.
But the real drain on my time is my work with The Equestrian Critics Society. For those who don't know, TECS is a small group that reviews and critiques author-submitted stories. As much as I love reading and then thinking and talking about what I read, its enjoyable work for me. Plus it helps me practice objectively analyzing stories for strengths and weaknesses, which will hopefully improve my own writing (though I wouldn't bank on it).
That takes a lot of time, however. Still, I've been forcing myself to make room to work on my own writing projects, too, and chapter 4 of Harmony Redux is finally shaping up after way too much elapsed time spent on me being lazy. So, that's coming soon. Hopefully someone will be looking forward to it.

I've been trying something new. Namely, forcing myself to write at least 500 words every single day, no matter what. It may not seem like much, but it should enable me to write at an average speed of a chapter per week, which would be nice for consistency. I've been at it for four days and it seems to be working well.
It's beter than trying to write 3,000 words all at once every six to seven days, at least.

I have created another story to house the clop scenes Accidental Harmony that I have decided to write, having been asked numerous times to do so.
Currently, it contains only the clop-scene of one chapter but more will be added eventually. I will also upload appropriate parts of Harmony Redux if I feel the need to write them.
Just as a fair warning, this will be my lowest priority work and is likely to go a while between updates. Still, I intend to finish it eventually.

Have a good day, everypony!

I know it's a little late to the party, but my story Accidental Harmony was mentioned on the podcast Brony Book Club. I've since listened to the rest of their podcasts and I enjoy a lot of the discussion of things they mention. They deserve more listeners, so if reviews about pony fics sounds interesting you might wanna check them out.
