    Enough!

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    Look... I really don't want to write this. At all. I don't want to say what's been on my mind for the past few months. But as of today - I've officially reached my limit.

    State of Address

    Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

    Today marks the seven anniversary of writing fanfictions about magical pastel talking ponies. I want to write this to both reflect on how far I've come and how far there is still to go for me. As well as to address a few things that I feel my readers should be aware of.

WANTED: An Experienced Editor Willing to do a 100,000 Word Fic · 1:18am March 10th

Dear Bronies and Pegasisters,

Normally, I don’t ask for something like this. Normally I don’t reach out to you, my fellow readers, to do something this... monumental. However, given the unique circumstances concerning this story - I must make an exception.

For those of you who don’t know, very recently, me and Rated Ponystar have spent several months on a Gallbar fic, which the rough draft has turned out a whopping 100,000 words with 10 chapters in all.

Now, for those of you who’ve been following me for the last several years, I know what you’re thinking. How come I just don’t go ahead and post this? After all, don’t I usually post what I’ve written and then rely on you readers to point out its flaws where I can fix them, while, if I’m extremely lucky, have someone that volunteers to edit? Normally yes. But this time around, it’s different.

Of course, this isn’t the first story that I’ve written with another author. However, this is the first where the story is entirely written out from start to finish. And given how unique this is, we agreed that this is too good to have it be posted as-is. We like to have someone who has experience with editing to take a look at this.

So what’s it about? As Ponystar puts it: “.... a story where Gallus and Sandbar die saving the world and end up in heaven together.” And that’s the oversimplified explanation! We have spent months making this good, and hopefully, with your help, this could be polished up to a mirror shine.

If anyone out there is interested, who has experience with editing, and know that they could do it from beginning to end, please personal message to Rated Ponystar.

Your fellow writer,

- CrackedInkWell

And now I’m super excited and wanna se it when it’s done please let me know

I am a decent pre-reader, including if desired basic grammar, voice and pacing. Does that help? What level of editing are you looking for? :pinkiehappy:

In my cowriter's words: "Just give me a private message if your interested and if you look experienced by as on the works you've helped edit then we'll both talk about it before deciding to accept you as our editor."

In other words, you may have to talk to him first.
