    State of the Scribe: May 2022

    Another month has come and gone, and here we are with another calendar. Can't help but notice I'm running out of empty days in the week here. I'll be brief this time, since there aren't as many changes as we sometimes see.

    Another month everyone! Promise this one has no jokes either, just the monthly lowdown on what the scribe is starring. Or... whatever. There's a scribe somewhere.

    Hey pones! Another month ahead of us, so let's jump right into things.

    First, the biggest news is that the cover for Don't Bug me is finally almost done, and will be before its arrival on the 22nd, allowing that story to come to fimfiction! No promises about exactly when, perhaps a little earlier, we'll see.

It's been another year! I hope everyone survived, I know it was a rough one for me. But here we are at the start of a new one. Hopefully a better one than the year we just left behind. Let's see what exciting things are waiting for us!

First, you'll notice Together We and Forbidden Places both finished last month, so they're not listed here. Together We was a oneoff commission and not in a slot, so nothing is replacing it. But expect a new story to take the forbidden place by the end of the month.

But I don't know what that new story will be yet, so I don't have a cover, so I don't know when it will come to Fimfiction. Next month, hopefully?

Sisters continues, so nothing to change there. One thing that is a little different this month is that Return to Sender is finally launching on Fimifiction. This story has been going on longer than the pandemic, to give you some idea of how old it is. But at long last, we're close enough to the end that I can start posting it on fimfiction for general readers.

That said, I don't want anyone who has been supporting it on my Patreon to have to wait all those months for all the chapters to go up, so I'll continue posting it monthly for you. That's why it has two colors on this (and future) charts, until the point when it catches up and finishes.

For those who haven't been reading all this time, Return to Sender is a sequel to Message in a Bottle, showing the world of that story a few years after the first ending (but not the huge timeskip epilogue). It follows a mixed crew of humans and ponies in the quest for first contact with a truly alien race, and the disastrous outcome.

So other than the new story I can't give you any hints about, what else is there to talk about? There's a new minific coming in hot, as well as the completion of an old one. That little story ended up big enough it will probably come to fimfiction.

Expect another few more extra minifics over the next few months. These were direct rewards for people who completed Nanowrimo with me, and the first one is coming on the 27th.

I spoke last year about my desire to make writing my full-time profession. While I only wrote two of the four books I hoped to create last year, I'm still highly optimistic as I edit these novels that at least one of them will amount to something publishable. I even have some art for one of them, which is in the second draft revision now. I've mentioned it a few times in these calendars, a magical girl story.

I admit I couldn't resist crossing over one of my favorite standby characters into a brave ponyless world. She probably seems a little familiar.

More to come, so stay tuned. Keep an eye out for the PDF of Together We for those who were waiting to read the whole thing in one place. I'll send that one out in a blog later this month.

Thanks so much to everyone who continues to support me. Your patience and support allows me to keep writing these stories long after I thought I would've been forced to move on and flip C++ or unload databases or whatever people with real jobs do.
