    New History Chapter

    Back from the dead to bring you another chapter of History Reimagined! Sorry it's been so long. Real life still sucks, plus last semester was crazy busy even before 2020 went completely off the rails and into the dump before getting struck with lightning and catching fire.

    New Horsewords! Yay!

    So I got tired of making blog posts that never led to any actual content, so I did it in reverse order: Content first. Guess what? It worked.

    History Re-edited

    Hey guys! I'm going to resume writing for History Reimagined very soon. (And I know I've said that several times now, but no seriously, I mean it this time.) Now, asking you to reread everything that came before could come across as rude, but honestly, it's probably necessary. And maybe not just necessary for you guys but for me as well, as there may be a few minor details I've forgotten

[Obligatory Not Dead Blog Post] · 7:34am Jun 23rd, 2018

[drop obligatory "not dead" comment/joke here] There. Now that I've gotten that out of the way...

I've finally got another chapter for History Reimagined nearly ready to publish! But first I owe it to you guys to tell you what's been up with me. Or down. Or up and down. Or up, down, and a ton of other directions like a roller coaster (But still mostly down.) ... My life; I'm talking about my life.

So the first few weeks I didn't write/publish, it was because exams and projects were closing in on me. That's probably understandable, but I'm just a horrible communicator, and that's something I'm going to have to work on. I should have told you guys why I wasn't putting out content.

After I took my exams my exams took me, I entered a period of trying to figure out what it meant to be a good student and what it meant to be a good writer. I went through several periods of losing and finding myself, making plans and throwing them away, defining and re-defining myself. Music played a part in that a couple of times. Ponies played their part, too. As it stands now, I've decided to take a year off from school to decide what I'm going to do moving forward.

"I remember how lost you were when you flunked out of magic school. I thought if you had a plan, you would never feel that way again."

--Stellar Flare

Yeah, I may or may not have cried during that episode...


But while one aspect of my writing break was personal, another is practical. In school, I'd typically use meals to pull out my phone, load up Google Docs, and flesh out an hour's work on my stories. Now, I've got a job with an irregular schedule and a single half hour meal break per shift. On top of that, I now work evenings and nights--times I had free when I was a student. I've trained myself to be a night owl, probably because my entire life has been regimented into a schedule of: get up, go to school, come home from school, then do homework or relax during the evening. Now that I have no set time to get up, an irregular bedtime, and little/no free time in the evening, I'm about as productive as a hole in the wall. Of all my problems, the productivity one is probably the easiest to fix. Getting up to an alarm and re-instituting my morning routine should help tremendously.

I can't promise weekly updates until I see this new productivity plan in action. I'll try for bi-weekly updates until I get back up to speed, but I'm not guaranteeing that just yet. All I can promise at this point is that I'll try to be better about getting content out.
