    Essay for my novel. (Sorry it's not MLP related)

    Hello guys,

    It has been a while.

    So I stated in my last blog post quite some time ago,

    I have been focusing on my own novel Project. After months of World Building, I'm now beginning to write some actual novelization content. Both as practice essay and as a mean to introduce some elements of the world I created as well as a testing how those elements hold together.

    It's time to put everything on hiatus.

    To anyone still following those blogs,

    First of all, I'd like to thank you a whole lot for your support throughout the my active years on this website.

    Secondly, I'll address the big elephant in the room : I have failed in my plans of keeping up working on my fanfics.
    For some reasons, I can't manage to write about the next updates for GTVS, Scratchin' Thieves or Apple Scratch Saga.

    Questions you might want to ask me and The GTVS Comic pages.

    Hello there old friends,

    It is I, Mariacheat-Brony and I'm writing to you answer the questions you all might have about what has been going on with my writing for. That is a blog post that is extremely long overdue to be perfectly honest.

    Have I left the MLP Fandom?
    I still am into MLP, but I'm nowhere near invested in the show as I was back to my beginning.

    First stream tonight (this afternoon) on The Apple Scratch World Building.

    Hey guys,

    How are you all doing? Well, I hope.

    Anyhow, it's just a quick announcement that I'll be doing my first attempts at creative writing streams in a couple of hours.

    Subject : Brainstorming about the Apple Scratch Verse : Other Countries, others races, world building, Map of equestria Completion... etc

    Possible Creative Writing Streams with Mariacheat?

    As you might know, I've had the chance to co-hosts some of Kare's steams related to GTVS and its comic. I've taken a liking of those co-hosts (reminds me of my short time as a youtuber), but sadly I can't draw really good so I doubt that I could host some streams without Kare there to draw. (

Questions you might want to ask me and The GTVS Comic pages. · 11:46am Sep 1st, 2017

Hello there old friends,

It is I, Mariacheat-Brony and I'm writing to you answer the questions you all might have about what has been going on with my writing for. That is a blog post that is extremely long overdue to be perfectly honest.

Have I left the MLP Fandom?
I still am into MLP, but I'm nowhere near invested in the show as I was back to my beginning.
I follow the show religiously and enjoy it a whole lot but I do not consume fan contents as much as I used to.

Does that mean that my stories will never be updated or finished?
I have many defaults as a wannabe writer : being easily distracted when I try to write something being the greatest of them, but I'm not a quitter. I plan on finishing what I started, even if it takes me much more time than I first thought.
Also, as some of you might have noticed, I did published/updated a few chapters here and there over the course of the year. (not much, but it's already that)

Why such a slow writing rhythm?
1) I'm trying to put more time and efforts into what I write. (Some of you might remember the first version of an Apple Scratch toward the world and will probably agree that it wasn't good quality writing compared to the re-write) and I always end making chapters longer than planned. (you are the judges if what I ended up adding is good or not :twilightblush:). So of course, it takes a while finish the first draft and to re-read it, correct it, etc...
2) Between my job, my friends, my new hobbies (rolling for initiative is an awesome but regular occurrence), my old hobbies coming back up (blame GW for making their games interesting again!!!!) and a few other personal things to care of, I have significantly less time dedicated to writing in comparison to my days as a student.
3) the fact that I'm easily distracted when i write (as I said earlier) and the fact that inspiration tends to come and go as it pleases (it is quite the fickle mistress! Even more so than Luck) are great barriers that I try to overcome, with less success than I had hoped.

Why no GTVS update?
Well, problem of inspiration mostly. I do get ideas for what's to come in the epic school adventure of Vinyl Scratch, but sadly none of them are useful for the chapter that needs to come out. Sadly, I don't think you guys will appreciate it if I start publishing the school trip story-line without finishing the Grand Gala and without writing what's supposed to happen between the two events. It's about the same for the Apple Scratch Saga and Scratchin' thieves. I have the ideas for a lot of scenes, but not the ones that matter in regard to publishing new chapters.

So here what I wanted to share with you guys, but if you have other questions, feel free to ask them in the comments

Best regards,

Mariacheat-Brony


PS : on a side note, after this page break, you'll find the pages of the GTVS Comic. (just wanted to share that with you guys since it's the first day of school today.) If you want to follow the comic, I'd recommend the GTVS tumblr page or Kare's DA page.

I've waited this long for a story update. I'll wait even longer if that's what it takes.

That was fast. I appreciate it thanks! :pinkiehappy:

oo, nice. Oh well, the vigil goes on as we wait for more delicious Octyscratch, Rarijack, and... uh... What was the third one? checks the stories Right, uh... Cloulight? Cloudight? Twicker?

What's the name for CloudKickerxTwilight?

4655148
no clue dint start reading em till this year but now i love em im actually waiting for the new lunar rebellion era story to come out midnight is one of my favorite ocs on the site

and this may sound fake but im compliantly serous favorite mlp characters are twilight starlight and sunset

I fully understand all the reasons Mariacheat. I suffer many of the same faults for delays in the ways of #3, the first part of #2, and the GTVS excuse. I have about 10 stories I'm tying to just get started, while I have at least 3 I'm working on continuing/finishing. *blarg* :raritydespair:

Just keep trying your best is ALL I ask! :twilightsmile:

4655148 TwiKicker if I remember correctly.

4657174
Really? Twikicker? That just sounds like someone excelled in kicking Twilight.

Wait...

Kicking for horses is bucking, and bucking is the fan name for... Never mind, makes total sense.

i'm so glad you are still here. You don't know the inspiration your stories had on me. As a writer i respect the amount of time you have to dedicated on the stories, i'm just so glad you are not a quitter and well.....i'm gonna be here waiting for new chapters.
