I stumbled into a strange, friendly world where I was oddly drowning in ponies and other small, sparkling equines.

    Back at it

    Oh boy. It's been more than two years, but Uniformity is finally out of hiatus. I didn't expect it to be that long, but things like that are hard to predict.

    As they say, better late than never.

    Along with the new chapter there's a brief summary of events so far, since I expect I'm not the only one whose memory needs a bit of jogging.

    I'm not really sure what happened, to be honest. The motivation and energy just drained out of me bit by bit, and for the past two years (after barely finishing the story Back and Forth) I've just been slogging aimlessly around. I'm reluctant to call it depression,…

    Here again

    It's that time of year again. I'm talking about NaNoWriMo of course.

    I have been writing practically zilch all year. Just haven't had the energy for it. I know you're all waiting for some sort of update - new chapters and new stories - but sadly I can't promise you any of that yet.

    I will be writing in November. It will be my highest priority all month, and I intend to prepare and psych myself all proper like. I hope it will kickstart me back into the writing game, not to mention give me a good first draft to work on come December. I won't be writing anything pony related for this, however.…

    Uniformity officially on hiatus

    I think I owe you all an update on the status and progress of Uniformity.

    With Back and Forth done, I had hoped to get right back to Uniformity and finally give you some regular updates. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened. I haven't been able to write anything lately, and I kinda feel like a mess right now, trying to juggle everything.

    Back and Forth was kind of a bust for me, and perhaps that's affected my enthusiasm a little for Uniformity and writing in general. Or maybe it's just how long it's been since I really worked on it. Maybe it's that the story has reached a bit of a slow point,…

    Almost there now

    A little update seemed in order, since my promise of 'the very near future' turned out to be closer to two months. How does that keep happening, anyway? Must be a curse ...

    I just want to let you know that Back and Forth is essentially completed, and I'm only waiting for some feedback from a friend before giving it the final touches before publishing it. Turns out everypony is overworked and busy of late, however, so it's hard to give any promises.

    Forward, march!

    As you may have read in my last blog post, I am finally working on Back and Forth again. Since making that post, I've written (the first drafts of) two complete chapters. There's one more chapter and maybe an epilogue left to the story after that, unless I grossly misjudge things.

    I'm going to finish that last chapter (and possible epilogue), then do an extensive editing sweep of the whole story before I publish the update. A few minor changes to the existing chapters (mostly added details) will be necessary, but I strongly believe it is for the best. I'll make a list of important changes…

The motivation and energy just drained out of me bit by bit, and for the past two years (after barely finishing the story Back and Forth) I've just been slogging aimlessly around. I'm reluctant to call it depression, cuz I haven't exactly been sad, but in every other way it's the only word I can find for it.

I'm back to writing now, however, and so far I'm enjoying it greatly. I hope it lasts.

I intend to finish Uniformity first thing, because it's been bugging me all this time that I left it unfinished. After that ... who knows.

I hope you all enjoy the new chapter. Cheers :twilightsmile:

Holy crap. :pinkiegasp: I thought this was a awesome, but dead story. To be fair, your hiatus announcement was almost 100 weeks ago...so...yeah. :twilightsheepish:

I look forward to seeing how this continues. I will probably need to re-read it, but I still vaguely remember the details, and the strange romance-ish issues going on between Bon Bon and Lyra despite Lyra's...issues...

I...forget why Dash was along for the ride now...but, meh, re-read time!

And yeah, motivation, life, and other things can affect writing. I tend to have a 3-4 month period each year where I just don't feel like it and get into playing video games or other things instead of writing.

You don't need to be sad to be depressed. I was diagnosed with it and I was all apathetic for most of it.

But on a side note it's good to see ya at it again.:pinkiehappy:

Awesome, can't wait to read it!

:yay:
I remember this being my favorite Lyra-centric fic way back-when. The story had a sense of adventure that was so intriguing that I couldn't help getting sucked in. I also thought the shipping was on-point. It's so difficult and mysterious between Lyra and Bon Bon, yet with Twi and Rainbow it's so well-spoken and lovey-dovey. Those different relationships gave me something to ponder, during page loading times between chapters.

100 weeks almost exactly? Wow. Yeah, I don't blame folks for thinking it was well and truly dead. I didn't want to post anything until I had the next chapter done, in order to not give any false hopes.

There's a summary at the top of the new chapter, if you wish to jump right back in without re-reading.

Thanks, it's good to be back at it too ^^

Depression is a word loaded with meaning, unfortunately. On its own it can give all sorts of wrong impressions

Thanks. I hope I can keep it up all the way to the end :twilightblush:

Hap

I'm super excited!

This is the first big story I got into while it was still being updated (as opposed to me picking up an already-completed story). I loved the sense of adventure, and the crazy worldbuilding. I'm looking forward to reading this again.

MORE WORDS FOR THE HORSE WORDS PRINCESS

Whenever I get an update notification from my Cold Storage shelf it's like an early Christmas.

Can't wait to see how it ends!. Glad to see you back.
