    Update Schedule

    Let me start with an apology.

    I know I have been falling behind on my writing, but my health has been out of whack. Yesterday I was sent to the ER due to possibly having a mini stroke, which was not ruled out...

    So that happened...

    Anyways, you may have noticed an uptick in my word count per chapter, as I have gotten better at telling the story.

    Two years...

    For two years I have been a part of this wonderful site, and in the process have grown as a writer. It has given me new insight as to how creative I could be, and not a day goes by where I don't think of new adventures for our favorite mares and stallions to go on and new realms to explore.

    But life, as always, is a double-edged sword...

    Artwork

    Thanks goes to my friend CrystalMysteria for recreating the collar in the story, her amazing talent once again surpassed my expectations of how it would turn out. (She did Queen Flurry Heart's cutie mark as well... Which is the cover art for this story). The excerpt from how the collar is described is found below (since FiMfic won't let me embed the image, link is

    Spoiler

    Bit of a delay with the current chapter due to how long it is and making corrections as I go (it is over 6500 words and more to come).

    To help build hype, gonna give you a few spoilers to talk about in the comments section:

    1) Chapter title is Balt'mare Blitz
    2) Chryssy gets a heartsong
    3) Bukbug is second best bug (only behind Queen Mothra).

Two years...

For two years I have been a part of this wonderful site, and in the process have grown as a writer. It has given me new insight as to how creative I could be, and not a day goes by where I don't think of new adventures for our favorite mares and stallions to go on and new realms to explore.

But life, as always, is a double-edged sword...

I know a lot of writers on here use their writings as their primary source of income, not just as an occasional hobby, but I am in the rare percentage where the opposite is true. I have a full time job, working 46 hours a week from Monday-Saturday, and between work and having things to do around the house my writing time is severely limited.

Damaged, Penalt, and Kris Overstreet (who are three of the biggest names I follow, and two of which are really good friends of mine who I communicate with multiple times a week) have update schedules that I would like to get to at somepoint by publishing multiple chapters a month.

I recently picked up three Patreons (:yay:) and seeing as how I charge by month instead of word count, I feel as if I let them down when I don't hit my deadline that I have in mind. In short, it is a terrible feeling and it sucks, but there is no other alternative. I do my best in the time I have, but even then it feels as if I don't push hard enough.

In other news, Merry Christmas 2018
