    I always knew trucking was hard.

    I always knew this industry is not the one I was made for, too. So, why am I a trucker? Why have I been one for... what is it, three years now? No, three and a half.

    It's because the trucking industry is the only one that'll hire. So why won't anyone else hire?

    That's obvious. My resume sucks.

    The Girl who Really Didn't Just Live

    As you might notice from my blog title today, I'm revisiting The Girl who Didn't Just Live. Last time, the story died and was replaced by the short-lived A Hogwarts Harmony. Which was replaced by the even shorter-lived ARM (I don't think I've released even the full title for that one yet, let alone the first chapter, but it's pretty close to DOA)... and a recent comment

    I'm not afraid to die.

    No, don't get me wrong, I'm not suicidal.

    The thing is... this morning, I fell ill. It was probably a couple days ago when it actually started, but despite repeated measuring, I didn't have a fever. That changed last night- my temperature shot from normal to a moderate fever overnight, left me with no energy to anything when I got up.

    The Girl Who... really didn't just live after all, I guess.

    Pardon the twisted title up there, but I couldn't resist. I am, after all, talking about TGwDJL: The Girl who Didn't Just Live... but also died.

    Hiatus... Expired!

    Hello.

    For the last while, despite a few updates to some stories (I guess TGwDJL got a rewrite released seven weeks ago...?), I've been on Author Hiatus for the last while, and now I'm finally coming back. I've restabilized myself, and I'm ready to resume writing, and actually getting stuff done once again.

Announcing Rewrite · 11:19pm Mar 16th, 2018

Hello everypony!

It's been a long time since I last wrote in Fire & Thunder. Google Drive tells me the last time I wrote on a published chapter was Jan. 6th, just four days after I started working on the document- and that the very last time I worked on the story was Jan. 8th- at 1AM.
The only problem being, it had such a nice, steady start- and everything went downhill (at mach 6, at that) from there. Even the Bolo. (Wohoo, airtime!)

So, I'm rewriting it. I'm going to be reusing much of the opening sequence, but adjusting some events... and completely eliminating others. Unfortunately, this means posting the rewrite as a new story would likely violate FimFic policies- so I will be rewriting it in place, overwriting old chapters with new. For those who liked the original and wish to continue that on your own, you're welcome to- I've archived the original Google Doc, and you're welcome to build off of it. Do make sure to comply with FimFic rules in any such building, though!

Anyways, to the keyboard! Time to see if I can't make Fire and Thunder into a better story than the one it's supposedly a rewrite of, Iron Mountain?

I'd suggest making it an "outtake" sort of deleted scene. You could post it as the perpetually-last chapter, or something.

I have also seen some stories with the same initial chapters, and you could always repost it as one chapter...

Yes, I could... I think I'll find out what people want from me. As it turns out, Chapter 1 is staying the same for my rewrite... and I'm posting Chapter 2 in a minute.
