    The beard of regret.

    This is a post about beards. Specifically, my beard. There's pretty much nothing else, so I encourage you to skip this post if you couldn't care less about beards.

    Heh, whoops...

    So, trust me to do a big "I'm back!" post and then immediately disappear for a couple months. Sorry about that! The last couple of months at work have been a little brutal, there's some personal home-life stuff happening, and I'm just generally out of practice when it comes to posting. I'll make an effort to post more frequently!

    Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it! And happy Thursday for those who don't!

    Thus kicks off the traditional holiday season chaos! Get ready for the next few weeks to be filled with holiday music, Christmas specials, and constant reminders of various sales in order to encourage more and more shopping!

    I can see clearly now...

    First of all, I wanted to thank everyone for the warm welcome I got the other day on my previous blog post. I'm not surprised, this is the kindest and most welcoming community I've ever been a part of, but it was very much appreciated! It underscored for me how much I missed being here.

    The Triumphant Return of Hoopy McGee!

    (Alternate Blog Title: My god, so many notifications!)

    Hi, everyone! Hope you’re all doing well in these trying times! 

    Well, I’ve decided to return to Fimfiction after an incredibly long absence. I’ve really missed this site, especially the community that resides here.

Happy Holidays! Wait, what? It's over? Man! · 5:10am Dec 26th, 2011

Well, happy holidays anyway!

I had to skip most of the festivities today since I'm battling one heck of a cold. But having an empty house means that I can sit around and write like a maniac! So that's what I did.

I'm up to chapter 3 on my next story. At the pace I'm going, I should have it wrapped up by the end of the week. This is going to be MUCH longer than Interview With a Princess... at three chapters, I've just barely gotten the story going, and I'm already at 8,000+ words, compared to my previous story's 12k or so. At the rate things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if I got over 40k words. Still not long enough to be epic, but as this is my second fic, I'm still trying to hit my stride.

Once I get this one, I have an idea for a follow up to Interview, which I may work on next (or I may not... ask me in a week!) It all depends on whether or not the initial idea I came up with can pan out in my mind to a full story. I don't have an ending yet. If I manage to think of one, then that's my next project. If not... Well, I have other ideas I can work on in the interim.

Thanks for reading, and I hope the holidays (if you celebrated them) were full of joy and laughter! Or, if not, then at least full of ponies, which is joy and laughter in itself :)

Ok. Here's the thing about writing while battling a cold. I pumped out a LOT of words over the last few days. That's the good.
The bad is that it's not as cohesive as I thought it was when I was writing it.
And the ugly? MAJOR rewrites needed. The core idea is one I like, and I like the characters, but man, I did a lousy job with the story! So much for having this done by Sunday.

Anyway, I'd rather take the time to do this right. :scootangel:
