This is my quest. To follow that star! No matter how hopeless, no matter how far.

    Temporary hold on all projects

    Without going into huge detail, the situation is that my daughters mother (who I am divorced from) threw them out of her house with an hour's notice today. They are with me now and we are trying to adjust, along with prepping to move to a bigger place on October 1.

    Today is my birthday, and I have reflected a bit on what it means this day:

    I am... satisfied with the life I've lived, and the choices I've made. Gods know they weren't always the right choices, but they were mine, and I am proud of all of them. Even the bad ones, because learning from them has made me a better person.

    Regarding recent events and depictions.

    Recently, there have been attempts to "create a dialog" or "have a discussion" about whether Nazis or Nazism should be in any way portrayed, written about or depicted on this site. It has been said that to deny this would be to deny free speech. To prevent the free exchange of ideas. My response is as follows:

    No Nazis, period. No Nazism, period.

    Calling for character designs

    So here's the thing. In my story, Brightly Lit 2, there are soon going to be five new secondary characters who will appear in a chapter or two and then fade into the background. They may be referred to or pop out again from time to time but that's it. You're probably wondering where I'm going with this.

    My own personal opinion

    The following are my own personal opinions about two major story subgroups here on FimFiction. They are my personal opinions and I will not think less or more of anyone who agrees or disagrees with me.

    I absolutely loathe the Fall of Equestria stories.

February Challenge · 9:29am Feb 1st, 2018

So, due to various events, combined with sad anniversaries and general life, I haven't written anywhere near as much as I like to over the past couple of weeks. I'd like to change that. So, for the month of February, I am posing myself the following challenge:

Penalt will write an average of 1500 words per day for the month of February, for a total of at least 42,000 words for the month.

Why am I pushing myself like this? A few reasons. Such as I really want to get back into the swing of writing. Also, I have written upwards of 2,500 words in a single day, only to get lazy in the days afterward. Another reason is that I'd like to take a stab at NaNoWriMo the next time it comes around on the calendar, and this would be good training for it. Finally, I just want to plain old see if I can do it. Now, I do have Patreon and other commitments. So, folded into this I have to:

1) Write at least 2,000 words of Brightly Lit.
2) Write a chapter of Mail Troubles.
3) Make at mentions of 2 characters at some time in the month, or at least have them do walk-ons in my stories.

Beyond that, I can write whatever i like. I do have more than a couple of stories that have been languishing untouched, but I'd like to know if my readers have any specific suggestions as to which of my stories should get some of the many words I intend to write this month. Oh, this challenge of mine comes with one proviso. Should I fail, I will not be disappointed in my failure. I will be pleased that I made the attempt in the first place.

I look forward to your comments....

Every word one writes is a triumph. I wish you all the triumphs. Also, I hope Twilight learns a lot of new and interesting stuff.

Brightly Lit and Mail Troubles are the ones I'd most like to see updated.

That said, I wish you the best of luck with your challenge. :yay:

Ya, I mocked the universe and it smote me down with the flu for a few days :) That said, a new chapter of Brightly is being written as I speak, Mail Troubles will follow.

I'd rather see a good idea unfold than just more stuff, but we shall see how that turns out soon enough...
