    Update (Without excuses this time!)

    Guess what? I'm done writing the next chapter of Manifesto.

    I just need to give my prereaders a day or two to look over it, and then it'll go up.

    Until then, here's Despacito being played on a guzheng.

    Hey, everyone.

    I've somehow gotten out of the habit of posting updates. Oops.

    Anyway, you've no doubt noticed that I don't post as often as I once did in the past. This is largely because improvements in my life situation mean I have the wherewithal to engage in hobbies other than writing fanfiction.

    Update.

    Goodness, it's been a while, hasn't it? You're probably wondering why my pace has slowed down on Manifesto. Well, there are several reasons, but the most relevant one is that I find myself rewriting large swaths of this chapter as I zero in on the best plan for Sunset to take. I'm basically going back and forth between two ideas that can't really be combined into a single one, and for

    New Story Incoming

    In case you missed my last blog post, I'm taking a break from the adventures of Celestia and Daring Do to write the next Petriculture story. At this point it looks like it'll be fairly short -- about two chapters long -- and I recently finished up the first chapter, which will be posted once my prereaders give it a final once-over.

Chapter 7 · 12:38am May 8th, 2012

Just wanted to let you know that I am indeed working on Chapter 7 of Wild, Sweet and Cool. It's been slow going, however, because hammering out a satisfying ending to the chapter has been more complicated than I thought. I'm sure I'll work everything out eventually, though.

I shall prep by rereading the other chapters a couple times:twilightsheepish:

Awesome. Sorry to hear you hit a minor snag. Let me know if you want some imput.

Actually, I do. I'll send you a PM with what I'm working on.

Oh, right. Last chapter ended on a rather... awkward note didn't it? :rainbowlaugh:
Well, I have complete faith that whatever you write will turn out superultraextremawesomazing. :twilightsmile:
By the way, I think that Petriculture might have been the most interesting fanfic that I've ever read.

Fine by me! I'd much rather have a quality chapter later than a crap chapter now =) Not that you'd ever write crap. Err...

It's not so much an issue of quality as it is the fact that I'm worried that I'm going to needlessly wade into controversy.

Controversy? I don't really think you could cause a great amount of controversy, but then , I don't have much information to work with =P Well, use your own discretion.

I don't mean real-world controversy, like, say, shoving my political beliefs into Twilight Sparkle's mouth, I meant fandom controversy. Basically, the first draft of the ending had Rainbow Dash saying things that may or may not have been consistent with her character, depending on your personal opinion of her. It's the kind of thing I could probably get away with if I'd spent several chapters building up to it, but this was right out of the blue, and thus really jarring. Fortunately, DPV111 had some suggestions to get me back on the right track. The result is going to be much better.

Ah. Well, try and make is as seamless as possible. I don't think that anyone is going to be incredibly angry in any event, but if they are, who cares? lol!
