    What year is this, again?

    It's been six and a half years since I last laid eyes upon this account of mine.

    So where the hay have I been anyway?

    Unlikely though it may be, some of you might have noticed that I kinda vanished from FiMFiction there for a while. Do not be alarmed: I'm still alive. More or less, anyway.

    Random blog post #4: On alicorns and princesses, or Forget everything you knew

    (Disclaimer: This is not one of those whiner posts I am sure are going up everywhere like mushrooms in a temperate forest after a good rain. Neither it is a cheering-on post. I am hoping to retain the neutral middle ground. It is, however, brought about by the announcement for the S3 finale. Consider yourself spoiler-warned. And pardon the pretentious title—those are meant to grab attention,

Rarity-CMC comedy still bogged down, replacing with other ideas; Pre-reading offer remains · 9:36pm Dec 4th, 2012

Hello once again, everypony! :twilightsmile:

So, after thinking yet more about the poor comedy stuck in the works, I think I've found out perhaps the main reason of its nonexistent progress. This reason is the lack of an inspired idea behind it. I conceived this story out of belief that I needed to make a comedy (or comedies) :derpytongue2:, but since its very beginning it felt artificial as opposed to natural. In all frankness, I could have been done with it weeks and weeks ago, since I do have enough energy to write, even if some of it is being sapped by extra work. However, because of not feeling inspired or motivated to write the story (instead, more often than not I end up feeling discouraged), I feel more like playing a game or making one of those ludicrously long comment walls of mine you can see on EqD and Discord's Domain; it feels as if I have to write the story without actually wanting to, and as a result I turn to something else.

So I say, to hay with that. The story has been sitting in the working area without a single alteration for weeks, and in that time I had several new ideas and developed a couple older ones further. Now the poor comedy about Rarity and the CMC is just clogging up the space at the top of the queue. Enough of that. I'll just put it on hold and finish it when I do get inspiration for it, or at least when its events and flow become clear enough in my head to be written out easily.

The idea most likely to get turned into a full story next involves some of the Mane ponies' pets, and is also a comedy. The difference between it and the Rarity-CMC one is that I don't feel forced to write it, but rather inspired to. Inspiration makes for one hay of a difference. I'm not yet at the level where I can produce a praiseworthy story, for example, from an arbitrary prompt, not even at the level of making a good story without inspiration for it. Maybe it's just the way I go about it, as there is no universal recipe for writing.

Either way, I hope I'll have better luck with this idea.

Now, those of you brave explorers of TIM text walls who have volunteered to have a proofreading look at the story that is now getting suspended, worry not. The deal is still on, except now it'll be a different story. If you're fine with this (or not), let me know in the comments.

Thank you for your patience. :twilightsmile:
