    Last Call to Save My Books!! (If any of you want them)

    Alrighty then. I've laid the ground work and now the final sign has come at last. The three books that I originally placed on the Cancelled list are going to be disappearing for good soon. FOUR DAYS until they are deleted from FIMfiction and are lost to the ether for all of eternity. That means on Saturday the 29th of August will be the day that I come like the Grim Reaper and cleave them in

    Books Up For Grabs!! (because I can't finish them all)

    Well, I'm sad to say this, but as of right now I'm cancelling some of the books that I've had sitting in my to do list for a long while now. I have realized that with as many books as I have in my to-do list, and my current system of only working on one book at a time until they are complete, it would take an eternity to finish everything that I currently have at my current pace. Thus, I have

My Evolution as a Writer · 6:42am May 14th, 2017

Well guys, it happened again. No not another chapter, although that is technically true. What I'm saying is that I've gone through another shift in my evolution as a writer.

Let me explain.

So for over five years now I've been writing books, and I've gone through phases as an author that would then evolve into something bigger once I gained enough experience. The first shift transitioned me from little short stories that were thirty pages or less to novellas that were somewhere around seventy five to ninety pages. The next shift bumped my page count up from eighty to around one hundred and sixty. Maybe a year after that shift, my stories changed again to go all the way up to over two hundred pages. That was where I was until just recently. Exactly one month ago, my writing shifted again. However, I don't know what my new page number is. All I know is that the chapters I've been writing are over double the length of my chapters from the previous shift. Pre-shift, my chapters would average somewhere around 3500 to 5000 words. Now, my chapters are 7000 plus, with my latest chapter going well over 10,000!!!

I'm a little spooked by myself to be honest.

So, her is my little self exploration into my life as an author. Take it as you will. I won't judge you for thinking I'm weird.

Anyways, that's all for now, I'll see you next chapter,
Shadow Quill, Messenger of the Moon.
