Review Roundup: October 12-23 · 2:03am Oct 26th, 2015

Hey, look! Over here! It's me, the guy from One Man's Pony Ramblings! And if you don't visit my blog on a regular basis, then have I got a treat for you: two weeks worth of reviews, commentary, and... well, ramblings.

Unless you don't like those things, in which case I guess I have nothing for you. My bad! The rest of you, however, can enjoy checking out what I've been up to for the last fortnight:

A day late, and a review short! Still, here's the six five posts you missed if you don't check out my fanfic review blog every Monday-Wednesday-Friday, lovingly assembled and artistically hand-arranged for your enjoyment:

For your (future) consideration, I recently figured out what I need to do to improve a Hearth's Warming story I wrote last year enough to post it (or rather, how to accomplish the thing I already knew I needed to improve), so I'm going to start in on that soon. But not too soon, because pre-Thanksgiving is too early to be writing Christmas(-expy) fiction. Expect a new short, seasonal story from me sometime around the start of December!

It's still Sunday, so I'm not late!

In Chris fic news, I saw that sometime over the past week, Going Up passed 5,000 unique views. I'm edging up on 1% of My Little Dashie, guys! Seriously though, 5,000 people is a mind-boggling number to me, in the context of "people who are reading something you wrote." Exciting!

So I finally got around to watching last week's episode on Saturday, right before the new one came out, and OH MY GOD WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME IT WAS SO GOOD!? Best songs since season two, a play on a literary classic that takes inspiration from the original without feeling the need to hew to it scene-for-scene, a timeless moral about making the world a better place by being the change you desire... A Hearth's Warming Tail had everything I wanted and more. Heck, it even showed me how,

If you've been contemplating writing a guest post for my blog, you have about two weeks left to come up with it! And if you're still on the fence/missed the call for guest posts, head over here to find out more. Right now I've got four yes's and a couple of maybe's, covering reviews, theory, and writing advice. Which is enough to get through my

It's December, and that means it's time to put on your Christmas hats! Join all the cool kids in doing so, if you find it to be a low-effort way to interact with the community and to generally have a little seasonal fun. Or don't, if you find the avatar hats affectatious and juvenile. Your call, but personally? I think they're a cool little tradition. Plus, it's one of TD's most lasting contributions to the fandom, and I think

OMPR Guest Post: Review of In a Tavern, Down by the River · 7:45pm Aug 12th, 2015

For the last couple of years, Chris, of the One Man's Pony Ramblings fanfiction review blog, has invited his audience to submit guest posts to cover the couple weeks he's away on vacation towards the end of summer. Today, my second guest post for him went up. It's available here, and reproduced, with Chris's opening and closing remarks, below.

I'm back from vacation, and here's what happened at my review blog while I was out of town! Some reviewing, some writing advice, some thoughts on the nature of reviewmanship, all courtesy of some very talented folks from around the fandom. Also, this (bi)week we're taking a reader suggestion and adding some bolding to help improve the "eyeflow" of things; I'm not 100% sure what "eyeflow" means, but if it means what I think it means, it's not something I'm very good at, so... hopefully

Hope everyone's enjoying their Super Bowl Sunday! I'll be heading out for a watching party shortly--incidentally, I learned last year that you've gotta be careful which friends you watch the Super Bowl with. Don't want to hang with the crowd that talks over the whole game and then wants you to shush during the halftime show, of all things.

If you weren't paying attention to the last couple of blogposts from me, this is the first of a new twice-a-month update post I'm doing. If you follow my blog, One Man's Pony Ramblings, then this is all stuff you've seen before. But if not, or if you're someone who just needs to be reminded that things outside of FiMFic exist, here's what I've put up on my review/writing/ponystuff blog since last Monday:

It's that time of year again! Go slap a Santa hat on your avatar, if you're the kind of person who thinks that's fun! If you're the kind of person who thinks that's sorta dumb, then feel free to not do that thing, though. I can relate; sometimes I think things are sorta dumb, too. But personally, I kind of like this tradition, and even if The Descendant's not around to pimp Santa hats, I'd be happy to see it keep being A Thing.

Or to see all the boring things you missed, and skim past them. Your mileage may vary, I suppose. But hey, I thought they were all pretty interesting posts...

We're edging closer and closer to the end of summer. I don't have any particular comment on that, other than to say that I'm against it on principal. I've never understood the "after a few weeks off, I'm ready to go back to work" crowd; it's not like I hate my job, but would I rather be able to sleep in, see my friends, and get some reading done? Uh, yes?

So, how's everyone's bracket doing after the first week? I, uh, might have had Louisville in the finals, so... yeah. Hey, at least I don't need to pay too much attention for the rest of the month!

Which, of course, means more time for review-reading! Head down below the break to see what I've been up to on my blog, One Man's Pony Ramblings, over the past few weeks.

I recently competed in the writeoff minific round, and you know what that means... I'll be publishing a new story soon! Or, I'll have a new chapter in my minific collection. Could be either-or, really; look for To Be Forgotten to show up later this week. I'll probably blog a little bit about it too, even if it's just a "by the way, it's here now, go read it" dealybob.

It occurred to me, as I was assembling screenshots of Carrot Top from The Gift of the Maud Pie to include in tomorrow's blogpost on OMPR, that I do a lot of stuff with Carrot Top. Which is fine, of course; I wouldn't if I didn't enjoy it, and she is definitely the cutest representative of a race/cartoon defined mostly by their/its cuteness. But it all happened gradually enough that it kind of snuck up on me; my most popular early

It's been a long weekend. A good one, but a long one, visiting friends and family. And getting home much later than I planned to, and barely making it to work on Monday as I continue to try to make up the sleep and energy deficit I'm running. I can't even tell myself I just need to make it to next weekend, because that's the barbershop district convention... that my barbershop chorus is running. So next weekend will be herding a few thousand old men around and trying to make sure everyone
