Hey, you know that really good author who has quality stories that everyone loves?  I'm not that guy, he's over there.  I'm that mediocre guy that's lucky to have as many followers as I do.  Thanks!!!

I'm Still Alive! · 3:30am

I haven't died!  I'm still writing!

It suddenly hit me that I haven't updated either blog or story in a little over a month.  So... I'm still alive.  My job is sucking up so much of my time, but at least now I have a source of income while I continue searching for a programming gig.

And I'm stuck on all five chapters of all three stories due for an update.

Starbound's next chapter is coming along in every other scene except the first one, which is stuck, and four rewrites haven't fixed that.

Twilight Sparkle Versus the Forces of Darkness is also stuck in the early couple of chapters before the plot really gets going.  I'm actually working on three at once here, because I know what each chapter's going to contain, and where each one starts and ends, but all three have hit walls.  I'll try to finish them in order and then release in order, but it's getting obnoxious.

Apprentice is probably the closest to release.  The first time I wrote the chapter, I wrote it literally in a day.  It's taken me three weeks to get halfway in.  The chapter has changed, the dynamics have changed, everything is different, but it's still the same.  And that makes it all weird.

I'm not even going to touch Worlds until I make more progress in all three of these.  Especially the first two.  Lawd knows they've been on hold long enough.

So that's that.  I don't have too much else to say.

Also...

Team Mystic serves no bird but the bird in teh North whose name is Articuno!

Alternatively, you could write it yourself.  You can do it!

>>2276940 Welp, time to wait for aonther story...

#19 · 1w, 10h ago · · ·

>>2276910

Probably not.  Not unless I finish this one up and then maybe do a sequel, but I'm already thinking about just ending Jack's and Twilight's story at Starbound, since all of the fics I'm writing at the moment are feeling more sloggish than fun.

#18 · 1w, 11h ago · · ·

Is there any chance you'd recreate Starbound but with the now-existing story?
