"Based upon the results of the previous blog post, I'm going to try for a bi-weekly update, or an update when I feel I've reached a major milestone.
In that vein, I've completed the in-depth outline of the next update, Part 3b. I've decided to split the original Part 3b into 3b and 3c, so now we're going to have up to 3d in total, each at about 15k -20k words more than likely. So based upon these guestimations, we're talking about a total story length just shy of 250k words. While that is not anywhere near some stories' lengths, it is still the longest thing I've ever written.
As I said previously, I would like to get this story completed before the next season starts, but we'll see how that goes.
For the next update, we're going to be jumping ahead a bit, and will kick off the day before Twilight and the others from Ponyville arrive in Canterlot to visit for the festivities. At the moment I'm planing on starting the story in Luna's pov, then moving to Twilight's.
What I've been listening to while doing the outline.
Non Story Related, Real Life Things Below
In irl news, I'm in the process of purchasing a house, which may adversely impact my writing time due to the time constraints which may arise in connection to packing, moving, etc. However, my new abode is less than five miles from my place of work, so the two hours a day I spend commuting will hopefully be put toward writing, and increase my output in the long run.
I do feel old though. I feel as if I just graduated from college (although it has been a good four years), and now I have a mortgage, and financial responsibilities, like a contributing member of society. Next thing you know I'll be feeling the itch to settle down, put a profile out on e-harmony, then match.com, and then more than likely purchase a Ukrainian wife who will use me to get her green card and then divorce me as soon as possible. I'd then grow even more jaded than I am now, take up drinking, and die of cirrhosis. Just like Uncle Pete, hopefully with fewer heart attacks though.";
