    Seasons Greetings!

    It's that time of year again!

    Thank you all for the love and support on my next big project, the curious tale of a big-eared, silver-tongued, no-nonsense little donkey. Maybe the next chapter in her journey will be less in need of her deadpan humour?

    We can only hope.

    To show her gratitude for how much her story (so far) has been appreciated, she has this little message for you!

    A Shoutout!

    This one goes out to Skijarama!

    Discord Writes a Letter went down phenomenally well, it spent nearly a week in the Featured Box, and then a further few days dancing between the Popular Box and occasionally back up into Featured. Reception to it was amazing, I'm so pleased my take on several well known fandom fanfic tropes was recieved so positively.

    Something Worth Celebrating


    As is pretty obvious, I’ve been on a bit of a writing spree lately. Ideas are forming, and being translated to words on a screen. I don’t know how long this bout of energy to churn out words will go on for, but make hay while the sun shines, right?

    A Nice Thing To Wake Up To

    Morning all!

    You know, these days I'm largely writing for myself. Which is to say, I'm no longer hugely concerned with getting as many views as possible. Story ideas occur in my head, and I write them out because I enjoy the satisfaction of them being transcribed into reality where other people may also read them. Ten people, ninety people, a thousand, honestly it's inconsequential.

    How Things Are

    Phew. It's been a minute, huh guys?

    At this point, I'm not even especially sure how many people will read this. But there's some therapeutic gains to be had by getting thoughts written down, so here we go. An update. If you're reading, here, have a cookie.

    Hooray! Nutrition!

Tropes and Tribulations · 9:15pm Jul 4th, 2014

Huh, that's interesting. Scotchtavia is now on the TV tropes website.

No, really. Here, scroll down, it's at the bottom at the moment.

It's listed under the Wham Line page, a wham line being:

A scene is headed in one direction, then the line is uttered. Afterwards, the scene is going somewhere very, very different. For it to be effective the audience must not see it coming — not just not knowing the exact information, but not expecting any kind of surprising, or even significant, line there at all. If there was background music playing in the beforehand, expect it to abruptly come to a stop after the line is said.

No prizes for guessing which line is the one spoken. And no, it's not the dog joke.

Also, a while back, I did a Twenty Facts Blog where three of the facts were false. The falsies were 3, 6, and 15. Kudos to Nonagon for getting 2 out of 3 right, making him the top scorer there.
