    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).

My collab piece posted, also Uni Days news · 3:47am Oct 20th, 2012

Collab news
Remember that collab I mentioned waaaay back? The entries are chosen at random, so it took a while for mine to be posted.
If you're interested, check it out! I also recommend the other contributions, they are really fun to read through.

Uni Days news
It has been almost 3 weeks since the last update. That's actually not as bad as some of the other gaps between chapters, but it must be pretty annoying for y'all if you are enjoying the story. I feel a little bad about it, even though I don't really have control over it (university is a merciless time thief) so I've got some cool stuff to make it up to you .
First, you can read the unedited first 200 words of the new chapter here!
Next, we have an adorable bit of fanart from FutureWonderbolt!
And MORE fanmusic, this time by DJ Crash! Of course, I'll be putting this stuff in the author's notes as well since most readers ignore blog posts, but for those of you who actually read them, you get to see it all early :)

Love, Dawn

EDIT: Why is it that 200 assessment words is like 3 pages and story words are half?
I still love it though! Can't wait for more.
Update when you can at your pace :derpytongue2: but still keep it coming :raritywink:
Damn that's some good drawing!

So much fanmusic.

Cooliosiasitis, a chapter WIP! Can't wait for the update now.


Anything you can give us for an estimated release date, maybe?

434736 I swear we like the same things...One of us stalking the other, I'm...semi sure of it...:trixieshiftleft:

Hey Dawn, you're awesome, don't feel worried about updates. Waiting for greatness is the best way to get it :twilightsmile:

Not really, sorry! It happens when I have the time, and that is kinda unpredictable.

434760 Great minds think alike? :twilightsheepish:

university is a merciless time thief
Oh yes. Yes it is. Unless you miss half of the lectures, that is :raritywink:

Also: very cute fanart and amazing fan music! :twilightsmile:
I guess you'll have to release a full album eventually :pinkiehappy:

Damn it, I had JUST gotten University Days' lyrics out of my head. Thanks a lot. :V

(Good on ya, by the way.)

iaza.com/work/121020C/iaza11560278539300.gif I don't blame you for being a little lazy... I am too!:twilightsheepish:

Have you read the other uploads for the Album?

Okay, I can resist.
What did you think of the one with Fancypants? A.K.A mine

I liked it. It fit the theme really well.

The author of Uni days liked my story... excuse me while I squee... actually no, I'm not that ecstatic, but I'm real glad you like it!
Now to get the other stories I'm working on (one of which is up though not complete) to be just as good!

I have no doubt you'll succeed. Practice makes perfect, as always.

Just need to hope now that people will actually read the damn thing.

If you keep writing and improving, you'll get the viewers. The thing about fimfic is that once you have a lot of followers, it makes it a lot easier to get even more. That's why a lot of writers shoot for their "big break" that will launch them into an upward spiral and get them views.
Just don't try to write something that isn't you. Don't try to be deeper than normal, or cuter, or more emotional. Write the stories for yourself and seek feedback to hone your own style.
That said, don't be discouraged from trying new styles if they really interest you. You might find a genre that really clicks with you and inspires you to create.
Gah, I really shouldn't ramble pseudo-advice at people. My apologies.

Its alright. Thanks for the advice! Through to be honest, I'm unsure what fits me genre wise.

@ Fury of the Tempest,

since most readers ignore blog posts,

That really sucks, don't it? Well, always know that I read almost every blog post in my inbox. :)

You'll see...when I have recording equipment, you'll have another music tribute to add on yo list >:c

I just need dem bits...

Good luck with University!...actually... both universities you have to take care of :pinkiecrazy:
