    State of the Author - January 2020

    This month, I finally broke loose again and was able to publish two updates, one for Legacy of the Greatest and one for Phantasmare.

    State of the Author - September 2019

    So you may notice this blog comes over halfway through the month, for a retrospect of last month.

    There is a reason for that. Call it about 160 working hours in the month so far, and then a professional exam that I had to study for and write in between that.

    State of the Reader - August 2019

    As far as I can tell, I read 1.12 million words in August on FIMfiction. Of that, about 10k were story updates. 546k were stories on my Read for Later or which popped up in the New box that were Incomplete/On Hiatus, and are now on tracking. The rest were either complete and so I was able to put them in one of my bookshelves, or I flagged off partways through the story and simply didn't care to

    State of the Author - August 2019

    Today will be the first of three blogs. I think I'm going to try a 'State of the Author' and 'State of the Reader' blog each month from now on until my whimsy flags off. State of the Author should be fairly obvious. State of the Reader will be more about the FIMfics I've read, and attempting to compile a word count read. The third one this month will be a one-off combined on my BronyCon

    BronyCon Sunday - Looking for a Muse

    So tomorrow is the last day of BronyCon. With that a lot of people leave early. I don't leave until Monday at 1030am on a flight however. I'll probably either go to a party or dinner after closing ceremonies if plans don't fall through but there is still a lot of hours after that before I would need to sleep.

State of the Reader - August 2019 · 4:44pm Sep 2nd, 2019

As far as I can tell, I read 1.12 million words in August on FIMfiction. Of that, about 10k were story updates. 546k were stories on my Read for Later or which popped up in the New box that were Incomplete/On Hiatus, and are now on tracking. The rest were either complete and so I was able to put them in one of my bookshelves, or I flagged off partways through the story and simply didn't care to read anymore. Oddly enough, there was only one particularly large story in that list (Legacy of the Pegasi, which I liked but does drag on a lot). One other story was 90k, then everything else was 70k words or less.

Over a million words sounds like good progress, and it is indeed. That's not even counting the regular fiction I read, or, horror of horrors, studying some of the most dreadfully boring technical material mankind has ever written. However, through the last month I've also gone through a list of a year's worth of new stories, and some older fandom stories that I've never read. As a result, I added nearly 20 million words to my Read for Later list. I can read at a rate of about 35,000 words an hour, so that would take me 600 hours of reading. I might be able to plow through that, but I get slowed down by my desire to try leaving comments on stories. I try to leave comments on most or all chapters on less popular stories because I know how huge of a morale boost that can be for writers, though with more popular stories I leave them basically at my leisure, which may be two or three times over twenty or thirty chapters.

Anyways, the numbers...

Current Read for Later count: 29,322,831
Current Unread Tracking Chapters: 63
Reading Goal for September 2019: 2,000,00
