    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 Author - January 2020 · 12:52am Feb 5th, 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.

Despite the updates, there wasn't actually that much writing done. A lot of it is because I had a substantial amount of words completed to both updates already. Legacy of the Greatest had about ~2500 words completed all the way from December 2016/January 2017, and I just had to overcome the inertia to get the other 50% written. Phantasmare was even worse in that aspect. I had basically ~6500 words done in late August and early September, so only 3000 words were newly-written content.

So far in February (though this isn't counted in the stats below, since it's February, not January), I've already written about ~2200 words towards the next LotG chapter and ~1400 to the next Phantasmare update. Let's hope I don't get those chapters mostly done and then just wait six months again to finish the last bit of the chapters :derpyderp2:

And in all honesty, I do intend to release a chapter for both this month. For Legacy of the Greatest's update, I have a pretty good beat-by-beat of the events in the chapter to keep things on track. In Phantasmare, a lot of it is already fairly solid in my head, plus it would be cruel to leave readers on a cliffhanger even if I already did that before for two years...

Off-site, though, there's big changes for me. I have a new job! One that gives me essentially a 50% pay raise, with better hours and a lot less stress. Of course, it's not merely me driving to a different workplace every day. I gotta actually make a cross-country move. There's not a whole lot for me to pack, so that part's not too stressful, but I still got 3 days of driving to make my move.
