I'd call myself a fanfic writer, if I wasn't too busy horsing around!

    Season 5 Retrospective

    Right, so it's been a month since I last checked in, and at that time I said I'd write a couple blog posts. Well, the holiday season came at me like a ton of bricks, what with its real-life obligations and so forth. I wish I had been able to put some time aside for writing, but I'm honestly pretty bad about that. But that's all over and I have more free time than usual. So, like I said last time,

    Update: All the Things

    Hello. It's been a while. Too long, in fact. I've had some long pauses between my stories, or any other kind of artistic endeavors I've gone on. It's a problem. I want to get back into writing, and I want to finish up this monster of a story that's just become huge and crazy and equal parts fun and frustrating, for myself and for anybody that's been waiting. I like to pretend I'm

    WTG Week 3 / "The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone"

    Okay, I'm more than aware I'm a small fry on FimFiction with basically zero notoriety or fame (E-fame? Internet illustriousness?), but I said I'd write something for the Writer's Training Grounds for Week 3, and I didn't. And it's worth mentioning why, at least. I could blame a bunch of stuff for preventing me -- I had a final, a job interview, my workplace is undergoing structural changes, one

    Double Feature: "Just an Accident" Fic / "Make New Friends" Episode Follow-up!

    So to continue my tradition and bad habit of writing more blog posts than stories, but also to somehow cut down on the number of posts I make, I'd like to talk about both my new story for EQD's Writer's Training Grounds, Just an Accident, as well as Saturday's episode, Make New Friends but Keep Discord!

    Whatcha gonna do, brony, when the WTG gallops wild on you?

    Hello there, pony peoples! It's not very late here in Southern California, but I'm incredibly wiped like you wouldn't believe. Finals are coming up, I'm dealing with crazy changes at work that are much too long to get into, and three days ago I saw the newest edition of the Writer's Training Grounds on

A Message on Proofreading and Grammar · 2:41am Aug 12th, 2014

One month! It's only been one month since I finished up the last chapter! That's some kind of record for me. Again, all of you are super awesome, and I'm glad you're all enjoying the story so far. But something's come up that I kind of feel is important to talk about.

See, my proofreader is currently busy taking care of her dad, who just went through some intensive knee surgery. There's no way I can ask her to do something like this. So I've got a temporary solution: a friend of mine, a recent convert to the herd, has offered to temporarily take her spot. However, because I also didn't want to entirely take away this project from my main proofreader (who I'm even paying), all he's doing is making sure my story stays on track and that it makes sense. As such, particularly eagle-eyed readers may notice a few grammar issues from now until the end of the story. They're definitely not atrocious and heinous in nature, and they'll definitely be cleaned up at least by the story's end, but it is what it is. Hopefully what that means is I can get these chapters out a little sooner. Unfortunately that won't change my slow writing speed, but... I'd like to think I'm doing better.

I also was spending some time in between writing this chapter on something completely different. I listen to a lot of music. Once in a blue moon I write about it. So I wrote a review of the album "Manslaughter" by Body Count. Spoiler alert: it was a pretty awful experience. It's totally not a pony-related thing, and I understand that, but hey, maybe you'll dig it.

Once more, you're all incredible, and I'm so thankful for all of you. Stay pony, my friends.
