    Rarity's Road Hiatus

    As the title states, Rarity's Road is on hiatus because I am hard at work on Stallionslaughter's second album. I would like to have it finished by the summer around the same time that My Little Putrefaction, the debut album, was released. Sorry if the seven of you were really looking forward to updates, but I probably won't be back at it for several months.

    Take care,
    HRL

    What am I doing wrong?

    I write shorts that are well received, but when I try to write a depthy story, it gets downvoted like crazy. I'd really like to know why. I'm not butthurt about the downvote, but I don't understand why none of the readers are telling me why.

    Rarity's Road Chapter 6

    I have Chapter 6 finished, and I'm beginning chapter 7. I've resolved my issues with were to go from there, and I think it's about time to reveal how they're going to fix everything. Ditzy and Rarity's relationship is a backseat plot, and from what I've heard, not a combination that would be expected. Chapter 6 picks up on this idea of ponies that are rarely shipped together, and our heroes

    Rarity's Road Chapter 5

    I'm proofing Chapter 5 right now. After a few read-throughs, I am sure about the events that take place. I debated with myself through a lot of points, and I had to go back and change a lot of things to make it feel more natural.

    Rarity's Road Chapter 5 to 6

    :( I hit my first block on this story. (Road Block, lol)

    I know where to go next, and I know how to bridge it together, but Chapter 6 is going to be difficult. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll stop myself here, but I will say this: There are ponies that are going to be alive and not-so-well. Some physically, and others emotionally, but it's going to be ugly.

Rarity's Road Chapter 5 · 11:42pm Dec 3rd, 2016

I'm proofing Chapter 5 right now. After a few read-throughs, I am sure about the events that take place. I debated with myself through a lot of points, and I had to go back and change a lot of things to make it feel more natural.

It was a lot of work because I had some dialogue that got out of character, there was a confrontation that simply didn't work and had to be re-witten completely, and I even forgot to introduce a new character that I intended to write into the story. Now, I just have to solidify sentence mechanics to make sure it reads okay. I also always have to delete repetitive descriptions (of which I'm a horrible offender). Ex. There was a lamp in the north-east corner of the room, and next to the lamp in the north-east corner, was a box.

Anyway, I may have it finished tomorrow in the early morning, but I may let it simmer for the weekend if any major changes come up.

Rock on,
Tom
