    Did anybody take photos of "And That's How Equestria Was Made" at Bronycon 2017?

    The Bronycon event proposal form has a box for the applicant to "include any relevant links that can show us how your panel/activity went or demonstrate your experience."

    Last call for Bronycon panels

    Submissions to run an event at Bronycon are due before 11:59pm EST on March 10th.
    That's just under 27 hours from now.

    We have a great writing track at Bronycon, but it is usually the same people panel after panel and year after year. That's because these people get electronically together well ahead of time and plan panels.

    Birds discover fire

    This post has nothing to do with ponies, unless the birds in question are phoenixes. I just thought it was cool. (Also, further evidence that everything in Australia is dangerous.)

    Advanced Scene Writing by Jim Mercurio

    Trick Question & I went to Jim Mercurio's "Advanced Scene Writing" class on Jan. 27; here are my notes.  I may steal some of this for a Bronycon talk.  Thanks to Trick Question for letting me crib from her notes too.


    The way you introduce a character should foreshadow his/her character arc.

reddit on Twenty Minutes now · 1:54am January 3rd

Amethyst Wind organized a Fallout: Equestria book club on reddit. Today they're discussing my story "Twenty Minutes". Amethyst Wind asked me to answer some questions about it:

  • What inspired you to write Twenty Minutes? How did it come about?
  • Literature inspirations in general? Books/authors/articles/podcasts/etc
  • What drew you to Fallout: Equestriain the first place?
  • What other works do you have, if any, and of which are you most proud?
  • Future plans for creative efforts?

My answers are posted here: Fallout: Equestria bookclub on Twenty Minutes

(I wrote "they" and "discussing", but so far there's only one other comment.)

I didn't realize your Cadance story was a Fallout: Equestria tale (but as usual, I need to read it).

I was interested in reading Fallout: Equestria until I heard it was basically a scene-for-scene recreation of Fallout with ponies. I'm not sure whether that's a good reason to be dissuaded from a work.

4765948 It's not a Cadence story; I just used some shopped gifs of Cadence in a blog post to taunt Skywriter.

(Taunting Skywriter is ineffective.)

Fallout: Equestria may use the same locations and factions as Fallout 2, but it couldn't be a reenactment of a game. I wrote a blog post about it: Why Fallout: Equestria is Worth Reading Even if you Hate it

Congrats on the highlight!

Anne Jamison teaches it every year at Princeton.

Wait, what. I thought that was only for one time. It's every year? Jeez. That's awesome man.

And what's all this "needs a total rewrite" nonsense? Excuses.

Does this new chess story happen to involve Celestia? :raritystarry:
