    Kaidan's Discord

    So way back in the before times I started a Discord. It's still around, and if you'd like to join it's a great place to hang out and discuss my stories or ask me questions. The rules are pinned in general and it's pretty chill, basically "don't be an asshole", tag spoilers, and don't do illegal stuff.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! May your 2022 by as awesomazing as Rainbow Dash.

    TL;DR

    • We're 9 chapters out of 22 into DoH3, yay! Chapter 11 is my favorite.
    • Still procrastinating on everything else
    • Focusing on myself to get more motivation to set goals and achieve them (i.e. resume regular writing after taking December off.)

    Merry Christmas!

    I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays and taking some time to have fun.

    I don't have too much to update on, I've been enjoying a more relaxed pace this month myself. It's been nice to have just one story to focus on, especially as temps drop below freezing and Winter is Coming™ all over the place. I'll throw a few things out there though to enjoy.

Weekend Update 2021-09-25 (Gen 5 hype!) · 3:11am Sep 26th, 2021

TL;DR

I want to finish my older incomplete stories, but I'm wondering if I should update them less often (1-2 times a month) to give room to pace myself, or explore new ideas. It was a bit ambitious to expect to do 3 updates/week every week when I only started writing again 3 weeks ago.

Ponified Without Consent 2

So I kept bumping this update back due to the reasons below, but the chapter's half finished I just need to polish and finish it. So it's been slow and steady.

Last Week Today

So I was a bit ambitious on my update schedule for stories, busy with work, and tired after.

And then I started thinking about big picture stuff. Why are we here? What gives life meaning? Will I look back one day and regret all the things I've never done?

This induced a bit of anxiety over the kind of existential stuff best postponed and ignored until an 18 wheeler runs you off the road, and you're flying through a road barrier and over a cliff... because it sorta killed my productivity. Then again, life has been crushing my productivity successfully for decades. Luckily there's a ray of sunshine on rollerblades with a killer ponytail and a smoothie stand...

Gen 5 Movie!

It was fun, I've had several story ideas too. Sunny was infectiously optimistic, I thought it'd motivate me to write some 50k word epic in like 15 minutes. Instead I watched it a couple times and continued my re-watch of Friendship is Magic.

I think I'm liking Zipp, finally a pony that really speaks to me. They really pull off that sort of "I'm unamused, fine I'll help you, but leave me alone" vibe. They also seem to have this sorrow too, where they don't really fit in and don't have the friendships they desire, because they're not sure how. As a royal she'd have every opportunity to have everything she wants, but the things she needs are all the things money and fame can't buy.

Of course I could be reading too much into Zipp's backstory, because the show didn't have time to cover every pony's personality and backstory as well as Sunny's was.

Upcoming Updates

Some mixture of focusing on my 2 stories I wanted to finish from 2014 (PWC2, TD2), my new Dash of Humanity sequel, and some <5k word Gen 5 Short Stories.

Stay calm and pony on!
