    What Next?

    Five months ago I cancelled my story, 'Nuclear Winter,' for various reasons, but the main reasons being:

    1. I anticipated that I wouldn't be able to continue writing it in the future
    2. I was frustrated with my lack of progress
    3. I wasn't confident in the quality of my own writing

    Six Year Anniversary Update: The End of 'Nuclear Winter'

    Wow, I can't believe I haven't written a blog post since February. Nobody even reads these anyway, but I feel like writing one more just in case anyone has any questions.

    The Belated Valentine's Day Update

    In Mid-January, I said I was going to get these two chapters out by the end of the month. Then I got busy with school. This time I won't make the same promise because I doubt I'll keep it.

The Veteran's Day Update · 10:27pm Nov 12th, 2018

So it's Veteran's Day in the United States. I don't really have the time to properly celebrate it, so I'll just upload a short chapter of my fic. In case it isn't clear by now, the military is a recurring symbol throughout this story, and they are potrayed as being the only ones capable of restoring order to the wasteland on a large scale. Silver Bullet always admired the military and aspired to join it, but her family never allowed her and tried steering her towards following in their hoofsteps of white collar civilian work. In chapter 16, she gets a little taste of combat, and later on in this story, she meets some ponies who will finally grant her wish.

I don't remember if I mentioned this in the last update, but I'm very surprised to find that my story now exceeds 100,000 words. I was expecting I would be somewhere closer to 50k by this point. I'm shocked because from my view, I haven't even scratched the surface of what I have planned for Nuclear Winter in the long term. My best estimate is that we may only be 5% through, and I'm worried that by the time I'm done writing (if I even finish writing!), there may not be a fandom left to read it, much less a FimFiction to post it on. :pinkiesad2:

I may make more posts on this site soon outlining my plans or asking for critiques, just so I can talk to others about my ideas.
I'm really excited for the second story arc, which will begin to dig into the 'meat and potatoes' of this story and its central themes. In the first arc, it was complete anarchy. In the second, we will meet what remains of the prewar government and begin dealing with issues of authority, as well as having several 'set pieces' for scenes and battles, because it will take place in a ponification of a real world town I am deeply familiar with.
