    JINGLEMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS 2021!!!

    Yeah, I know, I'm like a week late with this announcement. I'm aware that I've been getting more and more scarce on here, but that doesn't mean that I'm not interested in some Fimfic events from time to time - and this is certainly, certainly no exception.

    I was in a strange mood yesterday, forgive me for that.

    Still don't know what I really want to do with my writing anymore. Still struggling.

    Sorry about this, y'all.

    Need something to kick my butt into gear, and I figure this is the best way to hold myself accountable.

    A Brief History of Ost-Equestria

    Depending on how you define it, the history of Ost-Equestria is either very short - a mere twenty-four years - or quite long indeed, a saga spanning back since the dawn of ponykind. The races of Ost-Equestria tend to take the latter interpretation; in other countries on Equus, the former interpretation is generally considered the correct one. But, whatever the case may be, the causes leading up

A Brief Break from Brief Histories · 3:56am August 29th

Went to start touching up my Brief History of West-Equestria before posting it.

Classic writer's mistake. Realizing that the depiction of the evolution of Equestria's Ministries needed to be better fleshed out, I went back and started working on the early history again, before realizing that some dates and times around 0 ALB didn't match, and that the tone vis-a-vis early contact between Princess Celestia and overseas nations was off. Before I knew it, my word document was all but gutted, with vast chunks of text relegated to the dreaded "notes" bin, and I have no idea how to proceed in a way that covers the important details and is concise enough.

That was five days ago, and i've since been unable to reconstruct it in a way I've been satisfied with. At this point, I think I probably should try and get my mind focused on other things instead of ramming my head in the wall over this.

The question is: should I try and write a short little something centered around this world I've got? or should i step back from it entirely and write something totally unrelated to clear my head before diving back in?

Thoughts?

I find distance can help when you get yourself in a rut or a case of second guessing your plans over and over. If you don't want to not write at all, maybe some prompts and quick microfics could help.

Write a story about one of the dragon ladies. It doesn't have to be beer oriented. Just clear your mind before you return to this.

Clearing your head sounds like the way to go for this one. Take a step back and come back with a fresh perspective.
