    A Study in Contrasts

    I haven't been on the site too much recently, but I did take another look recently at two mature rated stories, both highlighting everyone's (?) favorite super model Fluer de Lis. One is a story that I can't quite bring myself to finish where she has a major league crush on Sci-Twi and is so damn uncomfortable with the idea of pursuing her crush that the whole thing is just cute as hell. (it's an

    Uncharted Waters

    I've been working recently at the latest chapter of "Danger Close", and I've run into a problem. I've wanted to let one of my characters have a speech impediment, namely an occasional stammer. But, not having any personal experience with anyone with this issue, and having no training in the subject matter, I can't help but worry about whether I can do this and not have the character just seem

    The Cost of War

    I am making more progress of recent on the story "Danger Close" and I hope to have another chapter out within the next week or so. I'm aware that I don't have a huge following, but I still plan to finish the stories I've started. Today, my writing had to take a nasty turn as I've had to kill a character.

    Do Stories Have An Expiration Date?

    My story, "Danger Close", was originally started in the middle of 2019, right in the middle of the last season of MLP:FIM. I admit that it's been a long haul trying to figure out just how I wanted to structure it, and exactly how the story should develop. I'm not much of a writer, and even as a reader I tend to stick a little too much to history as opposed to fiction, which can limit one's

    Something is Coming

    I've been plowing ahead these last few days on the long delayed next chapter of "Danger Close", and I think I can say that it will be finished by next week. I should ideally feel a certain sense of pride, were it not for the fact that it has taken me close to two years to get this far. It's not that surprising as such things go. There are a lot of stories out there that have stalled out over the

The Insane Pursuit of Perfection · 2:51pm Jan 2nd, 2019

As I continue to work on the first chapter of my second story, I took a moment to take yet another look at my first story. It was actually the second one I had written for the site, but the first one was just way too much of a copy of the most of the stories I had read, so I didn't publish it. In reading back through story two, I noticed several minor errors in how I had written the dialogue. They weren't serious ones, but they annoyed me some, and I was tempted to make corrections. But, there was someone reading it ay the time, so I held off.
Now I will admit here, I have tweaked that story on several occasions. But, am I being ridiculous in doing so? I have noticed other stories out there that go out with misspellings and odd word usage, and it doesn't appear that the authors seem too worried about it. Does anyone have a thought about just how much tinkering is appropriate? When should you say enough?
