I do nothing of merit. On occasion, I give the impression of being creative, but this is a deception. I am merely derivative in clever ways.

    Dropping in to try and find some art

    So my hard drive bricked back in the fall, and I finally replaced my computer with the stimulus money. But I don't really have a good way to try and recover the stuff that was on there, so that sucks.

    But, I was hoping for some help in finding one particular bit of pony art that I haven't been able to dig up again since then.

    Welp, that's just... everything fucked, I guess

    So back around June 20, I wrecked my car.

    Then back on August 28, the tires on my wife's car got torn up hitting something on the road, and we wound up needing all new tires.

    I don't think my cat likes my work

    So it's been a struggle to write anything, for various reasons, but I *was* trying to get back onto Legacy Ch 4 not long ago.

    Then today I was sitting at the table and started hearing faint tearing noises from behind me. I turned around and discovered that somehow my rough draft had wound up on the floor and the cat had done this:

    Random Encounter

    This was a fun moment. Choppy cause I had to remove a bunch of game speech commands and the usual bit of racist shit-talking.

    Also this was before I found out Scribbler did another reading of my stuff. I would have probably said that instead of RCL.

I have a helper · 8:31pm Sep 12th, 2014

Presenting my toddler's contributions to one of my Oneshotober stories.

I'm glad he can't read yet. "Daddy, what's clopfic?" is a conversation I'd prefer to never have.

One-shotober is a good way to burn out, just be careful okay?

I've done NaNoWriMo three times before (though only finished it once). That's potentially more writing than this.

Granted, if I did Oneshotober and then followed it up by making TBTK, Home Sweet Home, or Foundations my NNWM project, that might be too much. But I don't think I'll be pushing myself that hard.


I'll just leave this here, then.

I do have to say that everyone I know who participated in One-shotober last year burned out pretty hard, including the very small number of people who finished. This is why I am just asking you to be careful with yourself. It would rather stink to see you burn out. :twilightblush:

I think the issue will be less burnout or flooding the site with badfic and more I'll wind up just not finishing because I keep wanting to extend an idea out further and do more with it.

Like how the story in the screen cap was supposed to be a quick scene of teen Rumble & Scootaloo's first time, and has turned into 1600 words of them being awkward at each other and they're only just now getting towards actually doing anything.
