Finally!.. Story submitted! Reflection and a where-to-next · 11:36pm Jan 21st, 2019

Finally Bill's got a gun! Finally, after all these months Bill Cipher has a gun my first story is ready to see the world's light!

I mean, FINALLY! It has been about five months, since the idea came! It might have been just four months, but, meh.

As of writing this, the story is submitted and waiting for approval. I hope it passes...

Sufficiently Advanced is going on hiatus · 11:51am Nov 13th, 2015

Sorry for the light spamming beforehand, but I can only tag one story at a time with these things.

Given that I honestly thought I'd have Dark Horse done back in January, I think its time to wake up and smell the long since fetid corpse of that self-imposed dead-line.

Just thought you guys might to hear that. :twilightsmile:

(Anybody feeling left out, just throw me a comment and/or PM.)

No ETA, but hopefully this weekend baring RL or other interruptions.

Status for #8 · 6:59pm Aug 14th, 2015

I'm quite happy with the response with #7 so far. Seems the vast majority of you loved it, and I'm tickled pink about that since so much important stuff finally paid off this time around. A few tweaks from the sound of it needed, but nowhere near the rewrites that #5 needed or that #6 is, sadly, still in need of. :twilightsmile:

Sadly, I haven't quite had time this week for diving into that type of editing. :ajsleepy:

Because I'm nearly done with #8. :ajsmug:

Dark Horse Status Update · 7:30pm Feb 6th, 2016

Just finished up the final rough.

104 765 words, 454 pages of talking heads.

Compared with the last rough that was 184 838 words slash 743 pages? Still a bit on the heavy side, but an impressive trimming of fat nonetheless.

By now you guys know how my guesses tend to turn out, but I think the rest should take about 80-100 K words, spread over about 6-8 chapters.

State of the author, plus Dark Horse · 11:09am Jun 23rd, 2017

So, some good news, bad news time.

I just finished my term of employment a few days ago. Contract was up, and I left with a two-pronged glowing new mark on my CV from both the place I actually worked at and the local government agency that put me there, so it was a year well spent. :pinkiehappy:

The 'problem,' is that I made such an impression, that I'm getting reshuffled into another year-long position ASAP (Tuesday).

Dark Horse Status · 7:15pm Apr 8th, 2018

12170 words, 33 pages, ~90% done.

I know those numbers doesn't sound so much compared with last time, but there's a lot of polish that's gone into this chapter hidden behind those unassuming numbers.

Surprisingly, even after writing 1,186 words today, the dang Mirror hasn't gotten to Sunset's lab just yet. But I actually know what's going to happen now, meaning that portion should get written tomorrow! Meaning only like two more days before this chapter is done.

Seriously, it's gonna end up breaking 10k words easily. Haven't written a chapter that long since... Oathmaker, I think.

Another slog of a day, to be honest. Writing the Pie sisters still isn't coming as easily as I'd like, though I suppose that still is no surprise. A part of it is also just general uncertainty about how I want the chapter to proceed prior to the one event I know needs to happen.

Well, one way or another I'm confident I'll pull through in the end. Still managed to write 1,015 words at least.

Welp, guess who has egg on her face: me! Mostly because I have not, in fact, gotten to the point where the Mirror-Basement issue has been fully resolved. The path there is simply too meandering, though in a way that I think is interesting at least since it develops some other stuff in the process. The actual conclusion to the problem is likely going to mark the end of the chapter, Sunset's typical post script journal entry notwithstanding.

I only managed to get 1,015 words done on Synchrony today, but that's fine - 1,000 is my usual goal, as most of you know. Finished one section, got halfway through the next; once that's done, it'll just be two more sections and then maybe some quick ending bit and the chapter will be done. It currently sits at 3,520 words; I'm predicting it'll be a little over 6,000 when it's finished. But I'm not really good at predicting these sorts of things I don't think, so who knows.

Not much to say tonight, aside from the fact that you can finally expect a new chapter of Sunset in Ponyville to come out tomorrow!

Oh, and I may not post a status update tomorrow since I'm at kind of a low progress stage of things with Synchrony. But if something happens, I'll be sure to let you all know.

It's the end of the third week of NaPoWriMo, and since I actually did a meaningful amount of work this week I figured I'd actually check in.

I only got 546 words done today, but that's okay - I finished up chapter 7 of Sunset in Ponyville! :pinkiehappy: And, of course, started the initial editing work on the super-long chapter 6 which I will finish and send off to my proper editor tomorrow.

As usual, I will let you all know when it's about to be published.

Another 1,074 words written! I feel better about them than I have some earlier parts in the chapter, so that's good. I also expect to be finished with this chapter tomorrow, which is even better! Which means I should be able to start work on the Synchrony revamp soon...

But for now, my word count total for the month is a solid 12,341. I hope everyone is doing well!

Not much to say today - business as usual more or less, with a further 1,108 words done for Sunset in Ponyville. Still want to come up with a few more artifact ideas, though, but those will come in time.

My current total stands at 17,499! Lol one off of an even 17.5k...

It's another day of good news! :pinkiehappy: Not only did I write a whopping 1,273 words today, but I also got word that, after a few last edits, the new chapter of Sunset in Ponyville will be ready for publishing! Look forward to it tomorrow, dear readers.

Current total word count: 29,859!

Well, somehow I managed to get 1,088 word written today! The first 866 were regrettably a bit of a slog, and I'm still not entirely certain I'm satisfied, but they're done. The other 222 are pretty good though!

So! I updated Sunset in Ponyville today, so check that out if you haven't already. Got a few new followers too, which is always great. To those of you not yet in the know, since the start of April I've been doing nightly status update blogs regarding my writing progress and any thought regarding it I may be having. I started doing this basically as a way to hold myself accountable in some fashion to actually keep writing at a fairly reasonable pace. my current goal is to hit 31k words by
