Being a Better Writer: Horizontal and Vertical Storytelling · 10:43pm Aug 21st, 2017

Welcome back readers! I apologize for the lateness of this post, but I had a physical therapy appointment this morning, and that took up the early part of the day when I normally would have been writing this post.

In this edition of “Behind the Scenes” we’ll be looking at Stardust’s early chapters and how it evolved from its earliest concepts and into the story we have today.

This one may be a bit more spoilery so fair warning.

Finally saw dad again - life and home move progress update · 9:57pm Last Tuesday

I cherish every moment I have with my dad. I went around home for the first time in maybe a month to see him. A certain someone wasn't happy about me being home, but she can frankly shove it. So I saw my dad and was chatting to him while he was working on the decking. As he would say, he's ''up Crappy Creek'' because of no work thanks to the virus, and his work van literally broke down when he was going to look for a job, and this was right when he had a bunch of work lined up, so that's slowed

Ohhh! New blog tagging system! · 1:18pm Jun 7th, 2015

Hmm, it has come to my immediate attention that there is now a tagging system oh FiMFic!

I hope this just doesn't turn out to be like Tumblr....

But I do hope for a system that can give suggestions based on what people has already done for tags... Like Twitter, Blogger, and Tumblr :pinkiehappy:

Being a Better Writer: Body Language · 7:43pm Jul 11th, 2016

How do you show that a character is angry? Or nervous? How do you show that two characters are not on the best of terms with one another while they are on decent standing with another member of their group? Or that one of them is nervous? Jumpy?

Being a Better Writer: What Makes a Protagonist? · 10:09pm Mar 15th, 2017

All right. So, yesterday's incarnation of this post, to what is now great irony, started with a worried critique of Wordpress' freshly rolled out posting interface. To be specific, it critiqued the poor interface design, but also noted with a faint hint of worry that something so new was bound to have some surprises of a possibly unpleasant variety.

Ok, One Last Blog Post About Changeling Mine....For A While Anyway · 8:57am Apr 20th, 2018

Well, with the few reactions I got from my last blog post, and after a bit more deliberation, I decided I need to clear something up in regards to the changes that will be made to Shining Armor in this story, mainly in regards to his redemption.

Quick Naming Question · 2:04am Jun 23rd, 2015

So I have a pony OC for a story, whose special talent relates to diseases, viruses, and other toxic materials, and I've settled on two potential names for her - Quarantine (Simple and direct but makes her come across perhaps too villainously) or Merry Typhoon. (Takeoff on Typhoid Mary, more in line with what a sane parent would name their child, but seems like it's stretching things a bit.)

Which do you think I should choose? Or do you have other suggestions?

New Chapter for Only Time Will Tell · 10:38pm Jul 16th, 2019

So I just published a new chapter for Only Time Will Tell, you can go read it if ya want. It exists and I plan to add another soon. As in like within a week or two. More likely one than two. It's no Even Stars can Fall in terms of romance, but it's kind of a fun adventure thing I'm doing in the same world involving my favorite pony Minuette. Anyway, I'm gonna do another push to work on stories again, wish me luck on that.

Being a Better Writer: Trait Dominance · 5:43pm Oct 22nd, 2018

This is going to be a short one today. Two reasons. One is that I’m still sick, and don’t feel great. The second is that I’ve also got a work shift today I have to be at in a little over an hour. It’s going to be an interesting day.

Need a bit of help · 8:46am Aug 8th, 2018

I know basic geology, and a bit more on gemology, but not enough to readily do something like this.

Everyone knows about the Pie family at this point I hope. What I specifically need is someone who is pretty knowledgeable about both the different members of the Pie family, and different rocks that would match them. One I came up with on my own is obsidian for Maud, because it has a ridiculous melting point, much like Maud's near saint-like patience.
