    Status update

    Good grief, it's been almost three years since I've posted a blog. I mean, I've logged in a few times since then, but I haven't been on in a long dang time. I'm not dead, and I have been writing. I just haven't been writing on any pony related projects. My foci have been my Star Wars projects, Star Wars:

    Soon

    The school year is almost over, so soon I'll have more time to write. I've been focusing almost exclusively on my Star Wars fanfic, Forbidden, but Tux n Tails is not out of mind. I have just about the rest of it plotted out; all I have to do is get down to writing it. Once the school year is over, I'll have much more time to write,

    May the 4th be with you!

    It's Star Wars Day! So do me a favor and go give my Star Wars fanfic, Forbidden, a read. It's a tale of intrigue, betrayal, and alien love on the high seas.... Wait, a minute, that's the log line for Pacifica, another project of mine.

    The Uncertain Future of Sparity

    So, apparently, Meghan McCarthy said that Sparity will never happen. But she also said that Trash Sentry wouldn't be in Season 4.

Good grief, it's been almost three years since I've posted a blog. I mean, I've logged in a few times since then, but I haven't been on in a long dang time. I'm not dead, and I have been writing. I just haven't been writing on any pony related projects. My foci have been my Star Wars projects, Star Wars: Forbidden and Telluri Sims, Stormtrooper, and my original high fantasy series that for now I'm calling the Morning Star Chronicles. I resolved to focus entirely on finishing Forbidden in 2016, with the exception of my NaNoWriMo project, which was Telluri Sims. But it's still far from done. In fact, I've pretty much just finished the first act. I did do some work on the first Morning Star Chronicles book, which is going to be one major focus for 2017.

You're probably wondering about the statuses of my various stories on here. Those stories that are finished will remain finished. I think that's just Welcome to My Nightmare. My sort of experimental Luna romance, Music of the Night, is officially abandoned. As for The Tale of Tux n Tails, I am seriously considering either scrapping it or rewriting it from scratch. Now, I know I've put a lot of work into it, but to be honest, it was a product of its time, little more than self-insert wish fulfillment from a man who had no idea what the hay he was going to do with his life. I still don't know what I want to do with my life. But at the same time, as I've stepped back and looked at my magnum opus, on this site at least, the more I've seen it as a disjointed harem story with little indication, as of yet, of the plot. Rather than treating it like a book, I've been treating it like a season of the TV show. And all the work I've done on Forbidden has taught me a little bit more about how to do an episodic story with a more or less coherent, overarching plot.

So here's my dilemma. I can either finish Tux n Tails, continuing in the direction it was originally heading, or I can take a second crack at it with a plethora of changes that would improve the story but remove a ton of the events from its current iteration. I have a bad habit of starting things over; this is at least my third attempt at rewriting the Morning Star Chronicles from scratch. But I'd rather put out something I can be proud of than something that I look at with a groan.

What do you think?

Why not continue to make a follow-up of Tux n Tails, as a way of progression from what you have already started?
