    It’s time for the monthly check-in. This month was far more productive than the last so I’m feeling pretty good. As usual, you can find more after the break.

    Checking In - April 2018

    Greetings! I’m a few days late but it’s time for my monthly check in. I had high hopes for March but life with young children has a habit of altering those plans. Heck, I'm even three days late posting this blog! More after the break and the statistics.

    Checking In - March 2018

    Hello everyone! February has ended and so it is time for our monthly check-in. It’s been a weird month and not quite as productive as I’d hoped. Fortunately, the reason for that lack of productivity isn’t an issue of inspiration. More after the break.

    Checking In - February 2018

    Hello everyone! It’s time for the monthly check-in. The past month has been educational to say the least. As a result, I’m making a few changes to the way I approach these updates and what I’m going to include in them. More after the break.

    Happy New Year! I hope the first day of 2018 has treated you all well! As promised, I'm checking in to see how writing went last month. Honestly, it went both better and worse than planned because I neglected to account for one critical thing. After a look at the numbers, I'll explain.

Thoughts:

I was right back to my normal, uninterrupted writing time this month and tore through writing Chapter 48. I fell just a bit short of actually releasing it in April though. I still need to do one last read through to make sure I didn’t leave any unfinished paragraphs. I’m shooting for finishing it up by the end of the week though so that’s good news. Still, averaging over 500 words a day for the month isn’t bad in my opinion.

My original plan was to do some writing last night but an irresistible offer came up. Namely, I had the opportunity to go see Infinity War. Child care is a huge challenge for my wife and since we’ve had terrible luck with sitters. About our only option on short notice is to take turns going to movies while the other watches the kids. So my wife went yesterday afternoon and then I went last night. In the interest of not spoiling it, all I’m going to say is enjoyed the movie.

On another note, I’ve watched the first couple episodes of the new season. The stories have been interesting so far and the first two episodes have interesting implications for my future writing. In particular, I was caught off guard by the attitude of the education council. I’ve always had a head cannon theory that there is an underlying racist streak in pony culture based on little things I’ve noticed about Equestria. Still, I was surprised to see ponies displaying that behavior so blatantly during an actual episode.

That's all for now. As always, thanks for reading and for your comments!.

Can we expect to see Neigh-say in any future chapters then? Possibly a character you plan on fleshing out more like you did with the Diamond Dogs, or perhaps a secondary antagonist for future chapters like Prince Blueblood?

4852346 - Yes, I'd say it's pretty likely he'll show up; possibly even sooner in the timeline than he does in the actual show. He's a bit too useful as a powerful bureaucrat to ignore.

Interesting for sure! Dare I make a pinkie and the brain reference?
