That feeling when you'll never be a famous pony writer who burns out and fades into obscurity. Why even live?

    On Incest

    So, I've been given the dubious honor of being one of the judges in the Incest is Wincest Contest. When Shake first asked me if I wanted to be a judge, I was a little baffled at first. Why me, one of the hardest to please and most critical, bitter husks of a human being that ever walked the

    About Ch5 of CC

    I will admit, I feel a little bad about ch4 and 5.

    Back when I returned to write ch4, my feelings about writing sexy times had changed. I didn't feel like I had set it up properly and ultimately, it didn't feel right to me. But on the other hand, I also still had a personal interest in seeing the original premise of Apogee and Delta having some incesty fun.

    Course Correction ch5

    So I orginally intended to take a break from CC and do some other project in-between chapters, but I ultimately wound up coming back to it anyways.

    It's 80% done. The writing is done, just the editing is left, which may or may not take that long.

    Still writing

    Although it's been a while since I posted something, I've actually been actively writing for a few weeks now.

    I've started writing on a lighthearted fic just recently. Got a few thousand there.

Editing · 6:02am Nov 27th, 2018

As I work on my next fic (which will be a short fic), I've started to realize I need a good editor.

Editing is tough work. I've done a fair amount of it myself, but it's often hard to critique your own work. I can usually get something decent after I plow away at it for a while, but it can't match the benefit gained by having a new, fresh pair of eyes on your work. Also, the more you learn about writing, the harder it gets to learn new things. Or rather, the more challenging it is to effectively integrate new concepts. There's often this feeling that I'm hitting some of the goals I set for myself, but my own inability to see my writing more objectively blinds to me any obvious faults in my technique.

Anyways, if anyone reading this knows any good editors out there, likely established writers themselves in most cases, I'd be more than willing to exchange editing. Quid pro quo and the like.

Thanks.
