No BronyCon Highlight today :( · 7:39pm Oct 28th, 2018

I was looking forward to typing down the next of the BronyCon Highlights, but another engagement (which my aunt only reminded me of today) is in the way. With any hope, I'll be able to set fingers to keyboard and get to "Family Feud and the Ponies' Court" next Sunday.

Fic and Blog Promotion Friday - Plus sneak peek at new Trixie story · 1:33am Jan 16th, 2016

Starting with blogs, because they’re earlier in the alphabet and because: AlicornPriest has another one of his insightful and underappreciated blog posts on The Art of Writing covering figurative language, which I am guilty/proud of using like a (fill in metaphor here) in most of my writing. Go read.

Okay - so I was goaded (i.e. volunteered) to do another ship fic as part of a contest · 4:39pm Jul 1st, 2016

Yup. I'm a sucker for a writing contests, especially if the premise is novel enough. Check out Estee's Swift Selections Contest.

OMPR Guest Post: Couchfire · 5:45am Aug 16th, 2017

Over at Chris's blog, I've got a review up looking at some of the differences between SS&E's "Couchtavia" and Estee's "100% Move = 50% Fire," and why I felt very differently about two stories that have a lot superficially in common.

Reproduced below:

Howdy folks! It has been far too long since I did one of these. Sort of been avoiding a lot of blog posts because spoilers, like an idiot. I just need to catch up on stuff.

And generally being useless.

Sometimes, when I’m feeling like I’m being a useless lump, I just decide to do something.

Read It Later Reviews #78 – Goosed!, Stupid Direction-Face, Sick Little Ponies (And One Dragon), The Remainders of the Day, Twilight’s Escort Service · 6:54pm Jun 26th, 2017

Estee has written a lot of stories, and I’ve ended up reviewing a lot of things they’ve written. As I was writing this, I believed that I was down to the last five (finished) stories in the Triptych verse, and so I decided to devote a review set to finishing out Estee’s stories.

Turns out I miscounted, and there’s still one more left.

Read It Now Reviews #104 – Under Pressure, Passion and Reason, Fifteen Friendships, Blink and You Miss It, Haunted Hayride · 8:39pm Mar 14th, 2017

It amazes me that I managed to end up over 30 review sets ahead on Read It Now reviews relative to Read It Later reviews. I suppose it is often easier to read a spate of recent stories than to attack the long stories that seem to heavily populate my high priority shelves, definitely not because I procrastinate on reading them…

But, well, this time I decided I’d read a couple of ~10k word recent stories, in addition to some shorter ones. We’ll see how it goes!
