The shape of things to come · 4:38pm Aug 22nd, 2017

So, here's the deal: my mind tends to shoot in hundreds of directions at once and sometimes, just sometimes, that allows me to create a story. It usually means that I update slowly because at any given time I have a dozen projects going on.

A lot of times I get my inspiration from bad fiction, because while I might have trouble seeing my original works for all they can and should be, I tend to be able to look at utter crap and see the good story trying, and failing, to shine through underneath. Writing fanfic for good fiction is kind of outside of my usual element.

I'm not sure what that will mean here. It could mean that I'm not very prolific. It could have me seeking out things like the Equestria Girls Holiday Special (the Anon-a-Miss thing) which somehow manages to be worse than everyone said even though they said it was trash with no redeeming qualities.

Right now I've got just shy of half a dozen Sunset Shimmer fics in mind. So expect at least some of those to appear here, though I doubt I'll get the changing seasons one done in time for the end of month contest deadline.

One last thing before I close this post. I usually don't dabble in comedy and absurdism. Sometimes I do --as my one released story here attests and can be seen in certain rewrites of Twilight (book, not character) I've done-- but usually I don't. So, to the small number of you who are actually following me, you might not get what you signed up for. Time will tell.
