    The Darkening isn't Dead, I Swear!

    So, I know I haven't really done anything here in nearly two years, but I just wanted to tell anyone who may still care that I haven't given up on The Darkening yet. The truth is, I've been in a bit of a funk since before posting chapter 7. My depression came back, harder than it has in over a decade, and with it came the old feelings of failure. Every time I sat down to write, this little

    The Darkening: Chapter 7

    Finally, it's done! This chapter gave me a lot of grief. I wrote the Twilight section over a dozen times easily, and honestly, I nearly gave up at one point. But I didn't, and thanks to a comment from my newer pre-reader, Zodiacspear, it turned out even better than I'd hoped. So look for chapter 7 to be posted next Wednesday around

    The Darkening: Chapter 6

    Chapter 6 is ready to go and will be posted next Wednesday. Chapter 7 has really given me a lot of trouble, but I think I've finally just about worked it out, and I'm hoping the next portion of it will come along much quicker. Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful time over the holidays, and I also hope you'll look forward to chapter 6 after checking out the excerpt after the page break.

    The Darkening: Chapter 4

    I swear, I've never felt so much like life itself is trying to stop me from doing something. My computer and car died in the same week! My work got crazy and I've been working a lot of overtime, and between that and my girls being off school, I've had literally zero personal time to get anything done! On the plus side, I've been reading the Harry Potter series with my oldest

The Darkening: Chapter Five · 2:13pm Oct 3rd, 2018

All right! Chapter five is done and ready to go, and chapter 6 is just about ready to enter its editing stage. I've been getting a bit more free time so work on this has been coming along pretty well. Anyway, you can find the excerpt for chapter five after the page break, and watch for it to come up next Wednesday! Now I'm off to start working on chapter 7!




At the top was another large door that opened without protest except for the groan of its hinges, revealing a small room containing a desk, an overturned chair, and a bent sword laying in the middle of the room.

        Applejack led the way across the room to a wooden door on the opposite wall, then turned to Spike. "I reckon it'd be a good idea for ya to leave your pack and torches here. We ain't gonna need them from here on, and all they're gonna do is slow ya down."

        With a nod, Spike shrugged off his backpack and leaned it against the wall.  Removing her hat, Applejack dusted her mane with Vampony's Bane before placing it back atop her head, then held the pouch up.  "You want any?"

        "Nah," Spike said.  "I don't think dragons can turn from bites anyway.  We just bleed out."

        "Right."  Applejack tied the half-full pouch high up on her foreleg, then pulled her halberd free.  "You ready?"

        Instead of answering, Spike opened his mouth and inserted the burning end of the torch, plunging them into complete darkness.
