    Enough!

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    Look... I really don't want to write this. At all. I don't want to say what's been on my mind for the past few months. But as of today - I've officially reached my limit.

    State of Address

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    Today marks the seven anniversary of writing fanfictions about magical pastel talking ponies. I want to write this to both reflect on how far I've come and how far there is still to go for me. As well as to address a few things that I feel my readers should be aware of.

    Recipe for Getting Divorced

    The following is something that I have written in the story "Discord Teaches Philosophy: on Love," from the double chapters "When to Leave." The subject has to do with divorce and how they occur. I would like to hear your thoughts on this in terms of both fictional and reality (if you are comfortable in talking about it).

    WANTED: An Experienced Editor Willing to do a 100,000 Word Fic

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    Normally, I don’t ask for something like this. Normally I don’t reach out to you, my fellow readers, to do something this... monumental. However, given the unique circumstances concerning this story - I must make an exception.

    So What's Next?

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    Not too long ago, I have just finished writing "Discord Teaches Philosophy: On Love." I confess I didn't imagine that it would take me about six months to complete it, but I'm happy that I was able to pull it off. So by now, I assume some of you are wondering what I'm planning on doing next.

Face Reveal... Kinda... · 5:56am Jun 21st, 2018

Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

Yes, you read the title of this right. In a way, this is a sort of face reveal. I know that as I'm getting closer to my 25th birthday and almost four years writing stories for you guys, I have kept what I looked like a secret. A very good one in fact, that only a mere handful on this site has any idea what I really sound like, much less what I look like. I know the pony avatar created by the talented Mix-up for the face you see today. But the fact of the matter is, the original design you see here is kinda based off of me. Even asked him to put certain objects in the picture that reflected who I am. From the typewriter to substitute my main writing tool: a laptop. To the viola in the background in which shows not only the instrument I really play, but for my love of music as well.

However, what a huge chunk of you may not know, is that believe it or not, I do have a hobby outside of writing. On weekends, I paint. For the last few years, I have been teaching myself how to paint. This is coming from a guy who has never set foot in an art class. And has taken a few lessons from some youtube videos and criticism from a retired art teacher. Of course, I have slowly been improving as time goes by. And eventually I had created a Deviantart account in which I called myself: LastImpressionist.

The very picture that I'm about to show you, is my second attempt to do a self portrait in the style of my favorite artist: Vincent van Gogh. Here below is what I look like from the clothes to the awkwardly drawn face, it is without a doubt mine. The face of the author himself that he painted by his hand in September of last year.

So why am I showing you my portrait than an actual photo of me? This is partly for security reasons but I now, for the first time want to allow you readers a peak behind the veil of text at who is making all of this. And the reason why is because of the authors and readers who keep me going. That at times I have seen their faces more than once. So now it's about time I do the same with mine.

With a handshake,

Your fellow writer, painter, and closeted Brony,

-CrackedInkWell.
