I write the pone, I read the pone, I love the pone. I also take donations, as I am dirt poor like so many. If you can drop something in the tin, I appreciate it: http://cash.app/$kevlarunicorn

    On Hiatus

    Hey folks,
    As I'm sure will come no surprise to most of you who have been waiting, "A Tempest Tossed" is on hiatus. That doesn't mean cancellation, I am going to do my best to finish it, but for right now I have nothing to draw from, and my life has gone so upside down and busy that I wouldn't have the peace of mind needed to create a new chapter regardless of how much I would want to do so.

    A Tempest Tossed Into 2020 It Seems.

    Sorry, my friends. I was hoping to have "A Tempest Tossed" finished by the end of the year, and it didn't happen. I wrote about 900 more words in that time, but because I am a caregiver, and because for some reason every doctor and their uncle wanted appointments kept and transportation arranged, and all of the other tasks I normally manage still vying for my attention, I didn't get to make it

    Still Working On Tempest

    I'm still working on "A Tempest Tossed." I just wonder WHAT MADE ME THINK I COULD WRITE ALL OF THIS BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR AND DURING THE BUSIEST TIME OF THE SEASON?! *cough*

    I'm fine. Just letting people know, though, I'm still working on chapters.

    Back on Track (A Tempest Tossed) And Running For The Finish

    I'm hoping to finish "A Tempest Tossed" by the end of the year. I don't like stories dangling unfinished, and I managed to write about 200 words today, so I'm hoping that's the impetus I need to get things done. Wish me luck.

Retiring From Pone Stories · 10:06am Dec 12th, 2017

Hello my friends,
2017 has been one of the worst years of my life, and part of me believes 2018 will be worse. As it stands, I'm too exhausted. I realize I haven't written any stories in a very long time, and for that I apologize, but I was hoping the fire would come back. While I would occasionally get ideas for stories, I never had the time to see them through. Still, I held out hope. I now see that it will not happen, and to be honest, my heart just isn't in pone like it once was.

I have been rallying as much as possible, but I just don't want to deal with the side effects of it any longer. There was a time when what people said about me didn't bother me, but as I get older, I'm finding I don't want to deal with their venom any longer. Oh, it's no one here, just life in general, and people out in the world who can't help but tear others down, and who prefer to repay kindness with distrust.

So please let me say that I love you. I thank you for your devotion, your attention, and your encouragement. I thank you for reading my stories, and giving them life in your imaginations. That is a gift I will always cherish.

I will be leaving the stories up, don't worry, but I will be no longer writing.

All of my love,
John

This marks a sad day. I enjoyed your stories, your writing, your style quite a bit. There was a certain, light-hearted optimism that I will miss. My own interest in MLP has waned in those past months as well, but I rather like to see that as a good thing - since I do believe that it's just temporary. I tend to come back to it whenever times get hard, dark clouds amass at the horizon and desperation tries to break me down. It's a lifesaver. And right now, I don't need one. But I'm pretty sure that there will be a time, again, when I do.
Your stories helped me a great deal the last time that happened. They made me smile in a time I thought I had no energy left to do that. I am most grateful for that. For your hard work and dedication. I wish I could do more to give something back. To help you, somehow, even if it's not in the same way you helped me. For now, words will have to do.
I wish you all the best. May you find easier roads to trod, may you find piece and acceptance.
And this part can't be stressed enough: Thank you, John, whoever you are, thank you, LotusTeaDragon. You're a fine person. Never let them break you.
