I'm posting a blog to let everyone know I'm still alive, so... yeah. I haven't seen the first episode of Season 3 just yet, but I have seen the spoilers that were leaked. If Twilight Sparkle really does go Alicorn like a bunch of people seem to think she will, that means that StDoT will have been jossed. If that happens, I will slap an Alternate Universe tag onto StDoT and diverge after the events of Season 2. I've thought about this. A lot. Probably more than I should. I really do want to keep writing the story, but... yeah.
Christmas/Hearth's Warming Break will start after the first week of December for me, so when I'm not working at my job, hopefully I can find some time to work on my story. I've been taking a Fiction Writing class this term, and my instructor has liked what I've done so far, although (as of this writing) I've only done one story. My second (short) story (not pony related, although I was tempted) will get critiqued by the class to my face Monday. I have the jitters. Critique over the internet is one thing, but to my face? From people I have to deal with for a few more weeks? That's... unnerving. We'll see how this goes. I've still learned a lot from this class, though, so maybe I put it into practice here. No, I did NOT take that class just for fanfic writing. Writing is my minor and the creative stuff appeals to me.
I also hope I can get a good chunk of StDoT done over Christmas because my active imagination is coming up with ideas faster than I can write them. Already I have an idea for an intrigue story starring Pinkie Pie. Crazy, I know! I can't do intrigue. Yet. But my brain wouldn't let it go until I made a note, so I made a note. Not to mention the other two full stories my brain came up with for follow ups to StDoT. Yeah, you heard me. Trilogy. But only if I can write the first one! Agh!
Oh, wait, you say that intrigue starring Pinkie Pie is crazy? Maybe. But it's Pinkie. What else needs to be said?
On a non-writing related note, for my Databases class, our final project is to make a web-based database. Huh. We could choose to do pretty much anything, so I went for a pony related database. I don't know what my instructor will think, but it'll keep me happy, so there.
Have some cute.
