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.

The 52 Project is still going, over at my writing Tumblr. Today I posted the story I spent most of June writing, "Angel", and I'm quite happy with it. It's dark, and weird, and takes religion rather more seriously than most of my fiction does.

Anyway. I have to finish another 52 Project story to free myself up to write fanfic again, because I'm in exactly the trap I feared -- I don't have enough time to write, so I'm perpetually scrambling to get a story ready for the project. Hopefully with the four-day weekend (my husband and I own the company. After the month we've had, damn straight we declared a four-day weekend) I'll be able to make some headway.

Good luck. I'm looking forward to any progress you make.

I came to post that exact same thing, word-for-word. Get out of my head!

“The One Above All has made a Creation that is beautiful and sublime, but it is not and never has been fair,” the angel whispered.

That line hit like a sledgehammer to the gut. Incredible work throughout. Here's hoping your muse cooperates for the next one.

Well. This was... something. It was definitely something.

Would it mischaracterize things to say that you have a knack for writing stories that leave people with a lingering feeling of unease?

Yeah, I'd say that's probably a thing I do. :-)

Always great to hear from you! Keep it easy, write what you want, and we'll be here. Stay healthy and safe!

I have to say I really liked that short story you wrote about Angels. Why are all your works so...discomforting? Left a lot of questions in my mind.
