I've never seen a place that's quite like this. Everything is turned around; this crazy world is upside-down.

    A Very Important Announcement

    For literally the first time since I joined this site, I have changed my avatar. I'm sorry, but I had to, since this is the first time I have witnessed perfection. I didn't know I needed this in my life before today, but I can't imagine a world without Fluttergrapes now.

    The Writing Process (and why I should probably actually use it appropriately)

    Howdy, y'all.

    As some of you are likely aware, I just recently posted the first chapter of a brand new story. For reference, it is this one:

    EIf It Takes a Lifetime
    A young Cadance struggles to find her place in a world where she doesn't seem to belong.
    ArgonMatrix · 4.7k words  ·  10  2 · 201 views

    (It is also the tagged story over there in the sidebar—or wherever tagged stories appear on mobile, if that's your jam.)

    Little Break

    Howdy, y'all.

    Just wanted to drop a quick word here that I won't be around for the next few days at least. We're putting our dog down tomorrow morning, and I need some time to process things. He's had a long, happy fifteen years of life, but it's time.

    'Cosmic' Update – Chapter 2.5

    Howdy, y'all.

    I've been hard at work on the third chapter of Cosmic, but I realized that the first part of the chapter really works better as the end of the second chapter instead. So after consulting with my proofreader and mulling it over, I've decided to do just that.

The Twelve Days of Ficmas · 1:14am Dec 3rd, 2014

Ho ho howdy, y'all.

I absolutely adore the Christmas season. Everything about it. From the crisp, white snow that twinkles in the rainbows of festive lights to the smells of gingerbread and pine and warm apple cider to the nights where you fall asleep huddled close to the fireplace waiting for Santa as a nutcracker stands guard on the mantle. It's a very special time, and I feel like celebrating with all of you. So, in addition to participating in The Descendant's "If You Would Consider a Santa Hat" initiative, I've got my own little plan to bring out the holiday spirit just a little more.

Starting on December 14th I will be posting one story a day right up until (and including) Christmas Day. All of them will be festive, fun, and fuzzy. All of them will be Christmas/Hearth's Warming-themed. All of them will be happy. All of them will also probably be short, but I make no guarantees there. The important thing is that they'll all be written with the intention of celebrating the season to the fullest.

And that's it! Basically a Christmas version of One-Shotober, only with fewer stories to write and more of a single, connecting theme to all the stories. And if any of you feel like joining me in this festive crusade, by all means! The more the merrier! There are no strict rules to follow—heck, you could even post one chapter a day of a twelve-chapter Christmas story if that's more your style—so go wild. As long as what you're doing pumps more life and magic in the Christmas season, I'm all for it.

Not that I expect anyone else to partake, of course. I'm just doing this for the fun of it! Hope y'all like the idea as much as I do.

Merry Christmas!

Best of luck with this, Arg. I certainly look forward to seeing what you do with it. Thanks for taking part in the Santa Hatting!:pinkiehappy:

You and me both. I've got quite a few ideas kicking around—just gotta put 'em to paper! Oh, and the Santa Hatting was my pleasure. I love the tradition.
