Little Piece Of Advice · 6:49pm Nov 2nd, 2017

If a reader doesn't like a story someone else writes, for whatever reason they see fit, then decide to be a complete <censored> and put a dislike on every one of the rest of their stories, make sure that the stories don't have a low amount of dislikes. The author will notice. While getting a dislike doesn't bother me, I know it happens, but the fact that three of my "low dislike" stories had gotten an additional thumbs down in less an hour seemed fishy. I went through the stats of all my

Opening up about one of the good things about the pandemic · 2:24am Dec 17th, 2020

Frankly speaking, I'm thankful that there are no family gatherings this Christmas. No one wants to deal with relatives and/or members of extended families who are toxic, manipulative, and/or close-minded.

I came across a family friend who I think is a nuisance. As soon as the #MeToo movement began, I blocked her on FB and felt the need to speak up about my experience of being a victim of sexual harassment because of her inappropriate "jokes" and behaviour.

Being a Better Writer: The Keystone · 6:29pm May 23rd, 2017

Welcome back readers! As you may have guessed from this posting date, I had another Monday shift at my part time, hence why you’re getting this today (I’m at the moment writing it up during the early evening of the 22nd, so you’re reading this in what would technically be the future). Nothing too unusual there.

Being a Better Writer: Connecting with Characters · 8:33pm Oct 18th, 2016

I went out with my buddies to see a movie late last night.

I won't tell you the title, as it isn't important for our purposes right now, but I will tell you that it wasn't that fantastic a film. It was ... I suppose "adequate" is the best word I could use to describe it. But nothing more. The film wasn't exactly grand. It was simply ... a film. A sequence of events, with some action, some attempt at drama, etc.

The Most-Read BaBW Post to Date · 8:46pm Jan 17th, 2019

Full musing here.

So, I got curious the other day and started digging through site history on here. Why? Well, I can look at stats here on a yearly basis (but not lifetime, for some odd reason) and started wondering about each year’s most popular Being a Better Writerposts. What, I wondered, was the most popular (read: one with the most views) to date?

Facebook Dare: Ice Water · 2:15am Sep 11th, 2015

The video pretty much sums everything up, but the question which is most important is: do you want to see me dunk my head in ice water? :trollestia:

Yes, I did say glass water. :facehoof: Yes, it was an accident. I have, for lack of a better term, dyslexia of the mouth. :applejackunsure:

Tumbleweed vs. The Sunk Cost Fallacy. · 11:39pm Jul 1st, 2018

I have done ... very little today. Puttered around, did some chores, restocked the fridge. Typical weekend stuff. Going to go out and be social and see some live theater this evening, so that's nice.

But ... I find myself wondering if I somehow should have been more productive-- which is a fairly common thing for me as of late.

Being a Better Writer: Sidekicks · 10:56pm Sep 19th, 2016

The original concept for this post, or rather I should say request as that's what it was, was for information regarding a comedic sidekick. But I've decided to expand on that a little for two reasons. First, dying is easy, but comedy is hard. Really hard. I envy those who can write comedy, like Adams, Prachett, Taylor, or Korman. It's a serious talent. The art of regularly keeping a comedic tone, building things up for comedic beats not just every once and a while, but with

Ugh... can't decide... · 5:05pm Aug 16th, 2015

Okay... so I have a fic idea I want to work on. It involves sex. It involves clop. It involves story.

What I can't decide is if I want it to be anthro or pony. It's something to fap off to, but I think it might also be something to care about also.

So... thoughts? Or should I just drop this.

Also, I am a dirty, dirty pervert... sigh... stupid head!

I Believe A Proper Explanation Is In Order · 7:12am Sep 28th, 2015

Uggggggggh.

Oh yeah, right. My bad.

Well, uh, people... yeah, it's been rough. On me at least. You guys on the other hand could still be having a rad time. Or something. I'm not trying to put you down here. Just trying to be... real? I guess.

See, one of the main reasons I didn't come onto the site for over a month now was because of my job. But some other things got into the mix as well. Messy, messy things.

Just Being a Nerd · 3:37am Jun 23rd, 2019

Okay, I just watched the 13th episode of the 9th season and can I just say that I appreciate the MLP team for including all these theater references in the show lately! I'm a huge theater dork and I fucking lost it when they showed a reference to Wicked. It's one of my favorite musicals of all time! And I more recently saw a production of My Fair Lady and I was so excited when they did a parody of it in She's all Yak. If they do a reference to Beetlejuice The Musical

Being a Better Writer: Setting Sights Higher · 9:16pm Aug 3rd, 2015

Today's topic, despite its lateness, is one that I feel is important. It's not a long topic, nor do I think it will take much time to discuss, but it's something that needs to be said.

Set your sights higher.

In fairness, that's a good statement ... but it's also pretty vague. So, what am I actually talking about? Let's start with a little backstory.
