    State of the Unicorn: Poor

    That's poor in both senses, I'm afraid! Though before I say any more, I need to stress that I have a warm, safe home, enough to eat, internet access... the essentials, really. I am not in danger of losing those. However, I won't be doing much beyond those essentials for a while. Without going into boring details, I will very shortly be going in for dental work to be done. Which, as

    So then, Doctor Who

    Loved it! A few little quibbles, not all the acting from the newcomers was stellar and sadly parts of the gender-related stuff felt awkward and forced, eg "something a male-presenting Time Lord wouldn't understand", but I liked much more than I didn't. Plus one of my worries about the new Disney-cash-infused Who has been dispelled: this definitely did

    Bloody Covid

    Fortunately not in the literal sense! But yeah, I'm currently stuck at home, yet not feeling well enough to concentrate on ponyfic. It's a seriously annoying combination. :pinkiesick:

    UK PonyCon report

    This is inelegantly copy/pasted over from the (slightly) nicer looking report over on Louder Yay. Of course, I'm sure you all read Louder Yay anyway because you're such great people, but just in case here's the report here as well...

That's poor in both senses, I'm afraid! Though before I say any more, I need to stress that I have a warm, safe home, enough to eat, internet access... the essentials, really. I am not in danger of losing those. However, I won't be doing much beyond those essentials for a while. Without going into boring details, I will very shortly be going in for dental work to be done. Which, as we're not just talking a quick filling here, means dental bills as well, and they won't be small. (I live in England, so it won't be American numbers, but still a significant hit I could really have done without.) As such, non-essential spending will be very, very tight indeed for a while. It won't be much fun and I'm not happy, but I'll cope.

So, how is this going to affect me when it comes to ponyfic? Well, right now I won't be in the right frame of mind to write any for a bit. I was hoping to get something written, even just a thousand-worder, in the next month or so but I think that's now very unlikely. I certainly do hope I can publish something this year, but that really will need life to stop throwing rotten veg at me. Reading and reviewing ponyfic is easier, and so I would expect to keep that up most of the time, with perhaps only the odd week's break if things get on top of me or (as may happen) I just need a change of scene for a short while.

Life gets in the way like that sometimes. Little we can do but take it head on, and continue to carve out the fun relaxation when we can.

How much or how little Pony you do outside of the regular reading and reviewing this year, bud (writing and cons alike!), we totally understand. And will be right here when it all lightens up again. Best of luck with it!

I understand if you don’t write anything this year, I’m also struggling with my writing.

Yikes! Dental work is the worst. even when it's affordable. Get over heavy ground as light as possible, as Wellington said. Best of luck!

Sending you good vibes! Writing is fun, but take care of yourself first n_n

sorry to hear about your troubles, hope that life does indeed stop throwing rotten veg at you

Many thanks, everyone. You're all very kind. :twilightsmile:

You're welcome.

Look after yourself, that's super important. We'll all still be here when you're ready to return.

Thank you! I'm not entirely absent, just not really doing anything for a bit.
