    Leaving for a bit

    If you're reading this, I'm off on a long, long field exercise, for a few months, and I won't be able to answer. Don't worry, I'm not dead. I'll be back as soon as I can.

    The Rain Recedes

    Well, it's been nearly six months since the last update, but I'm considering shutting down "Tales of the Rainmaker". Someone pointed out a lot of flaws in the story that are too well engrained to fix. Part of me wants to continue, because I want to tell her story, but at the same time, that reviewer was right.

    I just got done watching The My Little Pony Movie and I was so excited I just had to write this. Okay, so this first bit will be spoiler free, and I’ll leave the spoilery bits below the break.

    Need a long term editor for "The Secret of Ponyville"

    No, this thing isn't dead. The entire plot is written out in a neat three arc format, I just need to fill in the details. The problem is I'm struggling to get a lot of the scenes to hit just right, and early on I relied heavily on input from Web of Hope as he

More story updates and stuff. · 8:02pm Sep 21st, 2012

Ah, 'tis a sad day. I finally hear back from Equestria Daily, and what's this? "Showmare" has been rejected due to, well... being overused.

Dear author,

It is my sad duty to inform you that your work is, at its thematic foundation, unfit to be published to Equestria Daily. I’m afraid that you’ve hazarded upon a premise that has been so overdone that no incarnations of it are currently being accepted. For your convenience, you may find below a list of errors to improve your work, but this piece will not be further considered for publication.

I knew that was coming. Oh well.

This isn't a whiny blog, though. I meant to update everypony on what I'm writing, which is a lot:

*As you may have noticed, "Showmare" has a new chapter, which is currently undergoing some editing, after hearing back from Ponychan.

*"A Special Mare" is being worked on as well, although I'm not sure how soon it will be updated just yet.

*A Really Bad Story" will be getting a new chapter, as soon as I finish writing it of course, but that's a given.

*I have two new stories currently in writing, that might show up in the next month if I'm lucky.

*I can't remember what I was going to write for "Pinkie my friend" which is only still alive because of you guys. Any suggestions or requests for that particular story, are welcome.

And that's about it. wow, I am terrible at writing a lot in these blogs, you would think that I would fill them up with more detail but no, there it is, that's all I have to say about that.

Wow what an absolutely:ajbemused: brilliant reason to turn down a fic, not that it doesn't meat criteria, just we've seen too many to bother. No wonder I no longer rely on EQD to find new stories.:trixieshiftleft:

As suggested by some other guy for "My Friend Pinkie" I'd like to see Sunspot contact his family or their wedding. :twilightsmile:
