The objective of fiction isn’t grammatical correctness but to make the reader welcome and then tell a story …to make them forget, whenever possible, that they are reading a story at all.

Birthday-verse Stories.

Editor

My classification is story editor. That means I am more skilled with identifying, correcting issues, and improving the elements of the story than I am at figuring out where a comma goes. I deal with character development and keeping characters in character, plot pacing, story flow and ideas, sentence and paragraph structure, and getting attention to a story.

I can work with grammar fairly well, but my efforts on that alone isn't going to get you into EQD. There is also a good chance that you aren't the only one I'm editing for at the moment. Many of these stories are on going and I might be working on them too. That means I'll be a bit slow with your story as I try to get things done.

Status Update · 5:08am

Thought I'd give a bit of an update on everything. I should have given the courtesy sooner, and I apologize if it felt like I've left everyone in the dark.

ER250

So most critical news first, Empress Rarity's 250th Birthday. I know it's been a long time since a update occurred, and I apologize for that. Life has been getting away with funerals, a wedding, graduation, and state boards coming up. There's some difficulty with this chapter, and I would be lying if I said there wasn't some procrastination involved. This is the Party Chapter(s).

I don't want to sound like I'm patting myself on the back here, or diminishing others, but I feel like I'm writing a script for the Avengers. It's like every chapter, or certain characters have lived within a reality of their own and having interacted with each other but live in the same universe. Sometimes a certain character might interact with two others and be something in common for the both of them (Blueblood with Rarity and Twilight), yet the two haven't been seen together. Like Agent Coulson before the Avengers. He was in Iron Man and Thor, characters that never met until the Avengers. Well now in ER250, I have characters coming together that haven't met and it feels like I am taking different story lines and tying them together.  

Those that have read all the way through (some folks might not have, that's okay), know or have an idea just how packed this chapter is going to be. Twilight and Rarity in the same room, and let's not forget that wonderful paper dropped at the end of Chapter 4. Goddesses, nations, money, spies, lots of drinking. It's stressing me out.

So I'm playing this... probably slower than I should. But I want this to be perfect. I want it delivered correctly, to be entertaining, yet addresses everything (like those bat ponies for example), and also ends this in a direction I want. The sequel.

I have other editing jobs as well that are being terribly put off that I also need to address.

Other things

As I mentioned, there are other things going on.

My grandma passed away earlier this month, and the grieving process was... well, sort of minor for me. I got to be with her as she died in the hospital. I was with her a lot when I was growing up, but the passing was more of a relief for me. In February, she had a stroke. And she began suffering complications. The worst complications with a stroke (aside from death) are infections. My grandma couldn't quite get over the infections. She'd do well for a few days, and then go back down again because the infection spread to a different part of the body, regardless of antibiotics used, it just wasn't enough to kill it off completely. She died from a condition known as Sepsis, which is a body wide infection that can easily overwhelm the immune system (40-60% fatality rate in elderly). She was comatose for most of her last hours, occasionally waking up and muttering something, but out of it minutes later.

I saw her death as a mercy. I will respect any man's opinion on the afterlife so long as they respect mine, but I believe she's in a happier place now.

On a more uplifting note, a friend of mine is getting married this weekend in Spokane. Awesome for him, right? Sure. I'm single, I hate married people because college ate my life. But on this, I'm going over to Seattle and hanging out with Autumnschild for a bit as he shows me the Emerald City. I'm excited about it. He's going to be the second real life "Brony" I've ever met. Plus, he's a fantastic guy.  

I have my state boards for nursing on June 15th. Yes, even though I graduated, I cannot legally work until I have a state certification. I've been studying for the test for about four hours everyday, looking to increase to five or six.

And I think that's it, ladies and gentlemen. I'm going to go back to writing ER250.

Yeah. I did once too.

That was a trippy experience.

I always think you're Alcatraz with that pic of yours.

Well, sweet. That's awesome that you're going to college. Visit the tutors as often as you can though.

Alright, just send me the links or allow my email account to have access to the docs and I'll give them a look at.

Congrads, man. What college did you get into?

University of Denver. I didn't expect acceptance, seeing as how my GPA is distressingly low. I guess having a couple hundred hours of volunteer work really does make an application stand out, after all.

So, I won't turn a friend away, but it may be a while depending on the level of work required.

Thanks! It shouldn't be too much. The stories right now are really short and simple.

I got accepted into college, and that took a ton of stress off me.

Congrads, man. What college did you get into?

Oddly, I can't focus on any of the writing projects I wanted to focus on. Instead of getting into Discord's Bored Board Games like I'd planned, I ended up writing two silly one-shots in the space of two hours.

Bah, it happens. Don't beat on yourself about it. It can do the mind and the story some good to take a break, work on something else or look at something else. That way, when you return, you'll have a fresh perspective.

I'd say that it's going well, but it isn't going the way I'd planned. I wouldn't say that is a bad thing, but it's frustrating to not be able to follow through with what I said I'd be doing.

Story of my life.    -__-

Would you be available again to help out this stupid writer and his inconsistent words? I improved a lot when you helped me last time, and I'd like to able to continue to learn from you, if you'd let me.

Sure. I might be pretty slow on it. I've got a few other fics I'm currently helping out with, and I'm graduating in a month with my Associates of Science in Nursing. So, I won't turn a friend away, but it may be a while depending on the level of work required.
