Okay, I admit it, I'm probably not your mom. But odds are I'm old enough to be. Now with Patreon account (under alarajrogers) and short stories on Amazon (under Alara Rogers).

    52 Project is still going

    And going, and going... I'm up to story 20 now.

    Since my last update, I've done:

    • "Norris and the Plague Doctors", a novella about a kid in a zombie apocalypse which is thematically more hopeful than most zombie stories (and also has people dressed as plague doctors who are trying to find a cure)

    Wrote, like, three words in June

    I'm exaggerating. It was actually 18K, which sounds respectable until you realize it was a third of the recent chapter of No Escape From Yourself, and one other story, and that's it. Work has been brutal this month.

    I expect things to be more relaxed in July, so I hopefully will get more written.

    I frankly cannot believe this.

    Given the overlap between fans of She-Ra and fans of My Little Pony, how is it there are no stories yet where Swift Wind comes to Equestria and ponies try to get him and Celestia to date? That would be hilarious.

    More 52 Project stories, but sadly no fanfic

    I've been struggling so hard to write anything. Output this month is abysmal. I've had to put all the writing energy into the 52 Project stories, so I haven't gotten any farther on my fanfics than I did when I last posted.

    I am not dead

    I feel like, in this day and age, this is something I should be telling y'all fairly regularly.

    Anyway, I have been writing frantically for my 52 Project and haven't had a chance to swing around to any fanfic yet. But I believe I am going to do the next chapter of No Escape From Yourself, very soon.

I am not dead · 10:56pm April 17th

I feel like, in this day and age, this is something I should be telling y'all fairly regularly.

Anyway, I have been writing frantically for my 52 Project and haven't had a chance to swing around to any fanfic yet. But I believe I am going to do the next chapter of No Escape From Yourself, very soon.

If anyone wants to read them, they're at my writing Tumblr. So far I've posted:

1. The Chicken Story: magical realism, comedy
2. Changeling: fantasy, fairy/folk tale, "altered tale" (fairy/folktale/myth where things don't go quite like they originally did)
3. Graduation Day: science fiction, superpowers, cyberpunk -- darker, more violent and grittier than my usual projects

Delighted to hear you're not dead! :pinkiehappy:

Alarajrogers: I'm not dead!
Dead Collector: No, she'll be stone-cold dead in a moment.
Alarajrogers: I feel happy! I feel-oof!

I appreciate the reminder. Especially in these trying times.

Alarajrogers: Quite telling everyone I'm dead!

Dead Collector: Sometimes I can still hear her voice...

Dead Collector: Oh, well, I promised I'd be up at the Robinsons'. They've lost nine today. I'll see you next Thursday.

Very glad to hear you're okay!

Hooray, more No Escape From Yourself!

Glad you’re still vertical. :pinkiehappy: I know what you mean about feeling like you should be telling people this!

That is wonderful news. And I would like to take the time to point out - your Elements of Opposition story was superb. It's a wonderful thing to know there will be more from you. Take it from a person who'd seen your work and found it magnificent.
