Status Update 5/24/2018 · 4:12am May 25th, 2018

I had a few doubts about how many words I'd be able to write today, though it was more due to not being sure exactly how the scene should proceed. But I figured it out, and it ended up coming out really well! I got 1,082 words done today, and I can practically smell the end of the chapter drawing near.

Current total for the month is 24,203!

Words didn't flow nearly as well today as they have other days - only 1,012, but at least I made my daily goal. The main reason for the difficulty, at least on my end, is cause I started my first proper Pie Sisters chapter of Synchrony today. As you all may have noticed, I haven't focused heavily on them since... well, Hold On. Just a few brief looks in the 'Clock Strikes' chapters of the current fic. So it's a little hard to just slip into them again since they're all such...

Some fairly good news tonight - I've written another 1,238 words for Synchrony (putting it at 3,813 total so far), and know how the rest of the chapter is going to go. Assuming I can get all the time to write that I want, I expect it to be done this Thursday. Which is pretty great, I think!

Horse Feathers is going on hiatus · 11:22am 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.

One Pony's Curse, Is Another Man's Blessing... is going on hiatus · 12:22pm Nov 13th, 2015

I will be returning to APCIAMB and my other longer stories, but right now I need to get Dark Horse out of my system, and it seems its going to take long enough a hiatus is the most honest thing towards you guys.

#8 Status · 6:50pm Aug 28th, 2015

So close to done I can taste it, but not quite yet.

17383 words. Shouldn't be more than a few hundred more, but I need to tweak a few things before I send this out to the editors. Think I dare say that should happen sometime during the weekend, with the chapter proper dropping sometime next week.

As such, last call if anybody wants to volunteer for editing that hasn't already. At least for #8.

#07 again, again · 1:16pm Jul 27th, 2015

You've probably guessed this already and I mentioned it in the comments of DH, but what I thought would be the easiest bit to write turned out to require ten-times that effort in both words and research time.

So, just a small heads up I'm in 'crunch time' on the chapter and that's why I've been silent. Not much more to add, just that its taking longer than I thought.

My second promised status update! I'm two for two! :pinkiehappy:

I wrote a pretty sizeable 1,102 words today! That puts me at 2,177 words total for the month.

Today was my third solid day in a row, managing to write 1,094 words for the Sunset in Ponyville chapter I'm working on. Which includes a bunch of dialog, and also finalizing the chapter title. Still not quite at my 'smooth sailing' point just yet, but aside from one particular scene I'm not certain what else I want to include. I suppose I'll figure that out tomorrow. It's entirely possible that I finish it up.

Hello again! Boy do I have an update today. I managed to crank out 1,263 words! :pinkiegasp: Granted, some of them were written after midnight... but I'm still counting it as the same day.

Turns out, writing out a retelling of an important event sparked some inspiration and words in me. Actually had to get myself to stop a little once I realized it was past midnight. :twilightblush: But still, it's unexpected in a good way!

So! As expected, I did not get nearly as much done on the new chapter of Synchrony as I would have liked to keep up my pace. To be specific, I only wrote, uh, 222 words... :twilightoops:

Ended up having to push past midnight to get my writing done, but I did manage to hit a solid 1,098 by the time I decided to stop. Also (finally) came up with some ideas for a few of the artifacts that Sunset is currently studying! Still gonna have to come up with more, though.

In bigger news, I did indeed update Sunset in Ponyville this afternoon! So if you somehow missed it... go check it out! :pinkiehappy:

Early update tonight, cause I've already finish the chapter. Technically I somehow managed to finish it hours ago, but still...

And believe it or not, I managed a whopping 1,297 words in about half the usual time! Holy cow was I on fire! :pinkiegasp: But hey, I knew exactly what I wanted to write, and was able to dump all of my focus into it.

Not much of an update today - I got chapter 5 of Sunset in Ponyville off to my editor, and that's it. I'll let you all know when it's going to be posted.

Monthly total stands at 25,837.

I'm ending the penultimate day of the month having written 1,064 words - only 72 off from my goal! Part of me does want to just keep pushing and hit 29k before I got to bed, but... :applejackunsure: I kinda also wanna just leave it there, and push for an even 30k total tomorrow. So I'll do that, with the excuse that I'm still not entirely certain that I know what comes next at the point I'm at in the chapter.

Trying to get back into the show. · 8:42am Jun 6th, 2018

Good lordy, The Scare Master (s5e15) is the first of the episodes I haven't seen yet. I've got a long way to go to get even remotely caught up.

But yeah, this is a precursor for me to get back into writing. Slow going though. Especially because stress coming from work, the fact my wife was fired from her job in November, and the fact I'm kinda hunting for a new job.
Not to mention my In-Laws paying for me to go to cool-egg.

Dark Horse status, author trying to survive · 5:17pm Sep 2nd, 2017

I've told a few already, but I'm trying to aim for an update before...

Well, an entire year has passed, to be blunt. :raritydespair:

Sadly... August was not pleasant. I was knocked out an entire whole week from what I think was the flu and it hit me so bad I barely remember it, and now only a week later I've caught the worst cold I've had in years.

Did I mention the heavy rains and mosquito invasion?

I'm back! · 9:00pm Dec 8th, 2018

I am back from my inadvertent vacation!

It has been since 11.11, that I have been offline! It is time to return!

Now, what have I got to do?.. Oh, yes! Shall I ever publish one story! What an author am I, if it takes so long for me to complete a one-shot? Without further ado I will go and review it: it does still need a proper ending!
