Hello everyone! Just thought you'd all enjoy an update of my progress. Chapter 6 of "You Brighten My Day" is still coming along nicely. Currently I have 9,255 words written and still need to finish three scenes. Now, I may end up pushing one back to another chapter, and even though it was mentioned in this chapter between Daniel and Celestia, it can still work later on. I've also been giving the really tender scene of this chapter due thought and ironically, I think I will be going with my first successful version of the "I Love You" scene. I'm not overly pleased with the second one and I think I conveyed more emotion with the first, plus I have a slight revision in mind that should make it even stronger.
I'm still planning a love scene for chapter 6, but I can say without exaggeration that chapter six most likely won't exceed the length of chapter 5, which was a little shy of 14,000 words. From what I can recall, everything in this chapter builds on the relationship even more, leading up to the calming and tender moment scene. A few more scenes will then lead up to the next love scene and hopefully be to everyone's liking. I'm hoping to finish the rough draft by the weekend. Right now, if I hold-off the one scene, I only have two more scenes to do till this chapter is finished.
Now after I finish work on this chapter, my Twilight Sparkle story will be next. "For Whom She Sparkles" has undergone a few minor tweaks in the overall planning phase, but should deliver the type of 2nd-person human x pony romance you've come to expect from me. The only real thing I've decided to change form what you may recall in the summary I shared a few months back - is the duration in which "you" have known Twilight and been her friend. Originally I had it that "you" had become a good friend of hers over a period of a few months, but for the story I want to convey, I'm switching it from a few months to about two years. When the new summary is released along with the story, and you get to read it first hand, you'll understand why I made the change. I'm not sure how long this story will be off the bat, but given some minor alterations to the plot, it should easily exceed 10,000 words. I will be doing this as at least two parts, and I've already got titles in mind for each part. There is a very special love song that will host the theme of the second part, plus while it will be late, this is going to be my "Hearts and Hooves Day" story. Based off the summary I never officially chose a time of year for it to take place, so I figure, why not have it coincide with this holiday.
That's all for now my friends. Hope you all are doing well. I'm hanging in there, and slowly but surely making progress on my projects! Thank you as always for your support and encouraging words! Have some more Celestia pics and another Twilight pic! Till later!
