I've had this idea kicking around in my head for a while.

It's not MLP. So let's get that out of the way immediately.

I've got this entire universe set out, in sci-fi. I'm going to be extremely vague because of reasons that will be outlined right meow!

I've kind of wanted to finish this novel and get it published. You know, as a book. A thing with pages, and a cover, and that lovely, earthy smell fresh from the bookstore. Pretty cover art. Proper editing, etc.

That has been my goal ever since I was a kid, really. I wanted to be big Mr Hotshot writer. Unfortunately, the kinds of things I write don't appeal to the teenage market so much. They don't really appeal to many markets at all. And sci-fi is a pretty rough place to try and start out anyway.

Not to mention that with my current, uh, 'portfolio' of works, if my fanfiction name got tied to my authorship name, that would likely end badly.

After a little bit of thinking, I decided that I'm not going to be big Mr Hotshot writer. I'm not, and excuse my language here, enough of a pretentious cunt to compete with other writers. I don't want to have to sit down and think of adverbs and pronouns and not ending on a proposition. I don't want to write a BS allegory tale with hidden double meanings.

I want to write something fun. I just want to write a fucking good time in text form.

So. If it came right down to it: Would you buy something from Anonymous Pegasus? A full-length novel. I can promise only that it will have action, a continent getting glassed, and interspecies relationship-building of the insane, crazy kind you probably expect to see from me.

I'm not cut from the right cloth to be an actual author. But I think I could handle publishing my dreck on lulu.com or something.

Obviously, I wouldn't be able to just give the finished away. It would be just like a novel at the store. Or one you purchase online, I guess. To go on your kindle or iPad or iCarpet or whatever you crazy kids are using these days.

And, of course, I'm not going to stop writing pony. It's just be nice to evict some of these ideas from my head and put them on paper for people to enjoy.

Yes/no?

Also, I've been working erry goddamn day (including weekends!) for the last two/three weeks. That's why I haven't written anything! :fluttershbad:

>>1946654 Well, it is kind of an incentive!

It works on what I post, not month-to-month (since my writing is so random anyway). Buuut I make enough money from work now that I'm not really desperate for moar money to get coffee milk or vidya games or whatever. Or you know, food, internet, and electricity.

Mainly, I write what I want to write. And even then, I get distracted by videogames! A monthly patreon might be good for other people, because getting paid every single month would force them to sit down and write so as to give something back. For me, no. Not a chance. Every time I've say down and said 'okay, forcing myself to write' I hated what I wrote so much I just ctrl + A, delete bombed it.

So basically, Patreon is what I use to pay for artwork for story covers! Saves me from having to steal cropped artwork and circulates some money to artists who generally need the money more than I do.

And yeah, I have a lot of unfinished stories because generally speaking, I like different things at different times. Like, I haven't wanted to write f/f or incest in months. So naturally, all those stories sit on the sidelines in favour of stories I wanna write recently! Which is Ingress: Symphony :pinkiecrazy: Octavia is a coming!

You're actually the whole reason I even know about this site or have any interest in MLP at all.  I followed you from The-FA-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named to FiMFiction and have never looked back.  Ironically, I haven't been back to this page in a while.  You have a lot of unfinished stories.  :(  Does Patreoning actually help you write more, or is it still on the level of being a reminder but not yet an incentive?

>>1929911 It's waiting on another chapter or two, at least.

Question, is Room for Rent complete or does it still need work? I am just curious since I love to read your stories as a whole rather than wait for another chapter. Your stories are awesome and I can't wait for your updates. Thanks! :twilightsmile:
