    Censorship Redux

    FimFiction moderators censor stories. No ponies? censored. Scripts? censored. Deutsche geschichten? censored. Story doesn't meet the absurdly low bar for quality because you can't follow the style guide in the least? censored. Sexual content with human/anthro characters under age 18? censored.

    You may have heard some of the recent news about derpibooru and Nazis/censorship. They're requesting feedback on policy enforcement right now. If you've got a horse in the game, now's the time to let them know how you feel.

    If you leave a comment here about how you feel on the topic, make sure to also leave one there.

    Boost: The First Taste of Sea

    Please read this story. It's from a contest I participated in on the Quills and Sofas Speedwriting server. Silent Whisper is a good author and this story haunted me afterwards.

    Riot Prevention

    As long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention.

Feghoot Fun · 5:56am Jun 8th, 2019

I’ve been working on a novel since last November.  I got some feedback and tips for it at EFNW. Since then, my progress, at least as measured by word count, has been pretty well blocked while I work on revisions and plotting.  I’ve been aching to write more. I found an excuse.

When I saw Super Trampoline’s blog post about the Feghoot Contest, I had to enter.  I like feghoots. A lot.

What’s a feghoot?  It’s a type of shaggy dog story that ends in a terrible pun.  The audience should be left groaning. One of my favorite examples is Shipping Sickness by Skywriter.

I’ve written feghoots before, but they were both standup pieces.  Fortunately, little translation is needed between the mediums. I have dozens of feghoot seeds tucked into my idea file, so I finished my first draft of Mummy Issues that night.

I'm interested in the best possible feghoots coming out of this contest. Accordingly, I've volunteered to be a pre-reader/editor. It's official even - I'm included in Super Trampoline's list of feghoot contest editors.

If you've got feedback on my contest draft, send it my way. Do you want feedback on yours? Link me up.

Thanks. Just gotta get a first story posted too. Maybe before the contest if I can get something else edited or written in time.
