You like stories but you don't feel like reading? Cum here. · 5:59am Nov 27th, 2016

Reading takes effort. What takes less effort is listening to a story instead of reading it. All you need to do is convert the story to mp3.

The problem with the above http://www.fromtexttospeech.com/ is that it only accepts 50 000 characters at a time. At least for me, that was frustrating, so I made an app to help me separate the stories into segments of 50 000 characters.

Update on writing challenge, and next game stream. · 4:22am January 22nd

Well, I lost ten days of writing to the Arizona trip, but even without that I'm way behind my 1500-word-per-day goal. But I'll keep plugging at it.

One major problem is finding away around a plot block in the current-in-progress chapter of Changeling Space Program. I'm almost there, but it's not quite ready to write in my head. I've been making slow progress on other projects, but nothing ready to post here yet. Sneak peeks are available for Patreon supporters.

CSP: I Can't Satisfy Anybody About the Footnotes · 4:04am Sep 1st, 2017

First, I came through Harvey all right. I was well away from the winds for landfall, and I was on high ground with good drainage for the 25+ inches of rain that fell at my house. And, thankfully, one of the roads leading out of where I live reopened just barely in time for me to travel to this weekend's convention for selling things.

Second, today I had yet another complaint about the footnotes.

Time Stretch: Second Turn · 1:12am Oct 4th, 2018

Well, the people have spoken, and the general consensus is that more time can't hurt. In light of that and the card I used for this blog title, I'm giving you all two extra weekends. The deadline for Villain Exchange Program submissions is now October 22nd, 11:59 PM EST. So moving it from my birthday to just before my sister's. Funny how that works. :derpytongue2:

Preview #1: CSP Chapter 12 · 3:26am Dec 27th, 2017

So I'm writing and posting little previews of things to my Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/KrisOverstreet) to get more donors. I'll have most of January to work on things, and I'm going to open my focus up for a vote.

First: the beginning of the next chapter of CSP.

Chapter 13: Mission 21 – Somewhat Worse Than Average Accidents

Get Artwork, Help a Friend Out · 5:31pm Jan 25th, 2017

The artist who drew the pics of Occupant, Goddard and the Minotaur rocket scientists I shared last month lost her job recently, and her employer hasn't reported the dismissal to her state unemployment office. She's offering a special deal for commissions right now:

Sneak preview of CSP Chapter 11 for Patrons Only · 2:06am Apr 27th, 2017

Just as the title says. Go check my Patreon and pledge if you want to see the evening before the launch of Mission R1, well before it gets published!

I've just about finished the first draft of R1 itself, which isn't nearly as funny as what goes before. I thought very seriously about ending the chapter there, but R2 doesn't really make a good chapter by itself. So, likely over this weekend, I will fly R2 in KSP (I've already designed and tested the rocket in-atmosphere) and press forward.

Writing Advice - Automation can be helpful · 2:15am Mar 8th, 2019

I took a little time this last week to code a specific piece of software which does one very simple thing. You click a button, and it shuffles thousands of lines of descriptive text I wrote to create a unique and thoroughly detailed pony appropriate for Fallout Equestria's setting.

The final episode of Mun Miner is edited and up on YouTube. · 4:04pm June 10th

Last night I finished Part 8, the final part... it's a long video (right at two hours), but that's because it was trimmed down from ELEVEN hours of streaming footage. (Sadly, the middle part of it uses backup low-res recordings because the main recording was corrupted by a computer crash. But since almost all the exciting stuff happened in THAT, I couldn't just do the montage thing with it...)

Added CSP Scene: Pinkie Pie is So RNDom · 4:31pm Jul 17th, 2017

So, the first couple of constructive pieces of criticism of the new chapter hit home, and I'm writing this to address, if not totally fix, the problem they rightfully pointed out... well, fix it as much as I can without basically ripping out a third of the chapter, which isn't going to happen.

Mun Miner 7 up on YouTube, livestream Monday. · 5:06am June 8th

Here's the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2Zlv56ohjs

I'm a bit less than halfway through editing the final YouTube installment, combining the last two-and-a-bit parts of the Mun Miner odyssey into one video.

Next stream is Monday 6-8, followed by Wednesday 6-10. Each stream will begin with me flying a new attempt at a spaceplane, followed by work on the crewed Duna expedition plus whatever else pops up.

Tuesday will be Changeling Space Program Day. This I decree. · 7:25pm Apr 8th, 2019

... well, technically not me.

Someone actually plumped for the top tier of my Patreon, partly to get a particular cameo in CSP, but mostly to get CSP moving again.

So, Haycartes' Pluperfect Method will skip at least one day per week. Tuesdays, at least for the time being, will be set aside for work on CSP. Those of you who are Patreon supporters will see a post tomorrow with a link to Tuesday livewriting on Google Docs.

Thoughts on the new episode (S5E13: "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?") · 6:03pm Jul 11th, 2015

I don't think I've laughed...or cried...as much as I have during a My Little Pony episode as I did with this one. My God, it was the perfect balance of hilariousness and seriousness. This could have been a disaster of an episode, but holy fuck it was the exact opposite. It was AMAZING.

Preview #2: Possible CSP Sequel Series · 11:34pm Dec 27th, 2017

I've been kicking this around for the past year in my head, and six weeks ago I began taking notes for it. If I do this I'd do it as a post-per-day challenge and see how long I could keep that up. That, of course, assumes there's interest, and that I can continue CSP and work on this too. Bad show to have a sequel to a never-finished fic, right?

Anyway...

Time Stretch · 10:56am Oct 3rd, 2018

There's a week left in the contest... but a surprising number of people seemed to have missed the memo on the thing in the first place. Seriously, this turned out to be a Wallflower-grade announcement. :applejackunsure: Given how many people I've seen come in from links on entrants, I'm strongly considering extending the deadline to either the 15th or the 22nd to give everyone an extra weekend or two. Which would
