    Help Wanted

    So the idea behind posting this mess was originally to cleanse my palette: clear out all the old unfinished junk, and set out to new, greener pastures with new, better ideas for stories that I could write, now that I have the time and inclination to do so.

    Further Context

    Things as I spoke about them in my last blog largely went as planned. I finished up my studies, did pretty damn well in a few things, and I'm all set to start work at the beginning of February. Got my shoes and shirts, slowly learning what an iron is for, etcetera and so on.

    Context

    A great value of fanfiction is in the context that automatically surrounds any work you create. Biblical Monsters for example, would have difficulty being such a focused, tragic tale of miscommunication without the MLP context. In some sense, this whole site is one big collaborative writing project.

    Well this is interesting.

    Hey everybody, how's it going? I've been super busy with tonnes of work all year – went up a year in uni, took on an extra subject, got a part-time job, started some personal projects – and thus very scarce around these parts. It's work I'm glad to be doing, and I'm learning a lot and generally having a good time, but I just haven't had a lot of time for pony stuff, and that probably won't change

    That feel when 10+ blog post notifications

    Twilight's new hairstyle will be the shark-jumping moment for this show, I'm certain of it. Time to start writing Littlest Pet Shop fics.

    Also... I like this theory.

So the idea behind posting this mess was originally to cleanse my palette: clear out all the old unfinished junk, and set out to new, greener pastures with new, better ideas for stories that I could write, now that I have the time and inclination to do so.

What actually happened was that I ended up looking at a bunch of my old drafts and thinking, hey, I actually quite like this, this and this (but not that) so let's tear these pages out and finish them! Funny how that works. And I Am the Night is just the first of such projects. No prizes for guessing what's next.

Now, to the main point of this post: where would I, in these latter days of pony, find a group to which I could submit rough, in-progress, unfinished, in-need-of-polish stories and get quality, in-depth prereading/reviews/editing/feedback? I imagine it's somewhere on FIMFiction, but yeah, the last time I did this it was in the Training Grounds thread on /fic/, so I really have no idea. Help is much appreciated.

Well I may not be a group, but I have nothing but time and am willing to try if you'll let me. I hate admitting it to myself but, I'm probably a much better editor and critic than I am a writer.

Some of the old /fic/ crowd are still around and still great choices for reviewing: presentperfect and pascoite are two who I'd be quick to turn to, personally. And as far as groups go, I know that Looking For Editors does decent traffic. The Writeoff Association is great for getting reviews, too... but with the obvious caveat that it be for stuff from the Writeoffs, so that's probably not what you're looking for.

I'd be happy to help myself, though I'll warn you that I've got too much on my plate as-is, and am prone to unconscionable slowness. Still, if that's not a deal-breaker for you, I'd be more than willing to help!

Thanks, guys! Slowness is certainly not a dealbreaker at this stage. I'll set some stuff up, and then I'll be in contact.

If you need I can give you my info for skype or my email if you need it.

Yeah, it would be nice to be part of a group like this. I just sent you a mail message, which I guess might help you to judge whether you would even want me in this kind of group with you.

Did this ever go anywhere?
