    I'm sure a great many of you are purveyors of the fine arts. Writing, drawing, painting, singing, making music, whatever your flavour, I want to talk to you. People are going to tell you to study things that will get you a decent job, even if those things aren't in the direction you want to go. People will tell you that having dreams is nice and all, but you need to take the path of least

    Good lord!

    That's a lot of followers!

    In celebration of this crazy occasion, I'd like to ask for your opinions on something. A lot of people come to me for writing advice, and while I don't claim to be the most skilful writer, I do know some useful bits of general knowledge. Would anyone be interested in occasional blog posts where I address the most common problems budding writers encounter?

    Where is the next chapter?

    I'm not dead, nor have I been incapacitated. Every time I set a schedule, life makes it abundantly clear that it disapproves.
    My apologies for the lack of updates. I've been so frustrated with having no time or energy to write that I cut myself off from a few things, this site being one of them.

    University Days next chapter RESULTS

    The poll results are in and out of the 2,000+ readers, almost 300 voted. It's cool, I ignore blog posts too.

    Anyway, the decision has been made and the next chapter will cover the day before Octavia's birthday (AKA awkward snowy cuteness).

Hearth's Warming Care Package · 3:48pm Oct 5th, 2012

In case you missed the EQD post, there is a big charity project happening that centres on writing. There really aren't many of those, and this is for a very worthy cause, so listen up.

The details can be found in that link above, but the basic idea is to put together a care package for young Kiki Havivy, a seven-year-old girl who is currently battling a serious brain tumour. You may have heard about her before from one of Tara Strong's rallying calls for charitable donations to assist Kiki's family and give them financial peace of mind during this difficult time.

However, for this drive, we ask only for your words. A fanfiction competition is being held, with incredible prizes on offer. All you need to do is write a short pony story for Kiki to cheer her up! I think it's an absolutely wonderful idea, and if you want to get involved, all the details are here.

I, along with a plethora of very talented writers, will be judging the submissions to choose the winners. The system we're using completely unbiased and fair, so anyone has a shot at getting through.

The rules are here, and the judging system is described in more detail here.

And finally, if you want to cut out the middle man and donate directly to the little heroine herself, everything you need is here.

I would apologise for the frequent blog posts lately, but honestly, this is absolutely worth annoying a few trackers.

Love, Dawn.

Wonderful idea. I've had ideas for a fanfic for quite a long time, but never got myself to start writing. This may give me just the motivation boost I needed :twilightsmile:

Damaged wrists keeps me from writing
Financial trouble keeps me from donating...

I feel useless T_T

Thanks for the extra publicity. I'm really looking forward to pawing through all the entries and art. Hopefully somewhere in there I'll find time for your new story

Dictate it to somepony? :ajsmug:

Have somepony else type what you want to make into the story? (Just an idea.)

Don't really pay attention to me at the moment, I am sleep deprived, and this isn't working well.. :facehoof:

I'd prefer to avoid that :/


Yeah... My ideas aren't the best. "Don't really pay attention to me at the moment, I am sleep deprived, and this isn't working well.. :facehoof:"

If I could write worth a hay I might go for it, but I can't so I won't. I'll just donate instead. :derpytongue2:

Must wait for check from scrap yard........gereeahg! :pinkiecrazy:
