CSP - The Footnote Thing · 12:01am May 21st, 2016

OK, seriously, I need feedback.

Some of you wanted me to space groups of footnotes throughout the chapters, at the end of each section they appear in. Others want the footnotes all at the end of a chapter.

So... which is it?

Going through the existing chapters and editing them for consistency of footnote placement is NOT FUN, so the next time I do it will be the last. I need to know which you prefer- scattered, or all at the end of a chapter?

Footnotes! The Traveling Tutor and the Librarian has a new look · 4:13am Feb 16th, 2019

I have *just* finished up re-editing and re-posting all thirty-seven chapters of The Traveling Tutor and the Librarian, making all the headers line up right, adding proper⁽*⁾ footnotes, and taking out all my Google+ pictures by turning them into TinyPic.com links (because Google+ is going away next month). If you haven't read it before, I'd encourage you to take a trip through it over the next few days, and

Mechanics Advice: Footnotes (Self-Demonstrating Version) · 10:55pm Nov 20th, 2015

For the non-self-demonstrating version, go here.


Footnotes*! To do them right, enclose (2) the number (c), and use exactly the same format in-text and at the footnote (4). Asterisks are right out*****.

*These things right here.

Oopsdate · 4:25am Jun 6th, 2017

Well, something about the site update seems to have broken all my nifty boxed footnotes.

...fixed just as soon as I figure out how to fix 'em.

Grammer a Week 13: Ellipses · 11:52pm May 15th, 2015

This is Grammer a Week, the periodic blog program-thing where I address a frequently broken grammar rule and tell you how to fix it. This week's installment is about the ellipsis. The ellipsis, otherwise known as the "dot-dot-dot," is a piece of punctuation that is very easily overused. It's powerful punctuation, undoubtedly, but only in moderation.

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.

Author’s Notes and Mutant Hybrid Fiction · 3:49pm Dec 6th, 2015

I have now uploaded some 3600 words of Author’s Notes to Time on Their Hooves, spread across the seven chapters, to provide further details on the science, history and other random references to real world trivia which were woven into this story, from Zero Longitude to Atomic Clocks.

A Canon-Incompatible Concept regarding Exceptions to Standard Pony Tribal Categorization · 1:21am Feb 15th, 2018

There is a concept for interpretation of the show, a sort of... potential headcanon, which I have contemplated (but never personally held) that I solves a number of inconsistencies and confusing elements in the show, but which is a bit too far from what show canon has told us to be considered perfectly consistent with existing canon; however, it's close enough that it wouldn't be entirely inconceivable for an author of the show to suddenly introduce it without completely

Footnote Testing (a.k.a. better than lorem ipsum) · 1:33am Jul 30th, 2020

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities, and vital system components1 comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

  1. Why is an entire LaTeX distribution not included here?

Commission from ROBCakeran53! · 3:07am Dec 25th, 2018

And blog post 555! Woot!

My friend ROBCakeran53, who you might know from TURN DOWN FOR DERP, has written a story for me! Which I commissioned from him!

And in true pony style, rather than give him bits, I traded him a tool for his family’s fleet of rear wheel drive trucks and SUVs. Remember, kids, the barter system makes the world go ‘round.*

Bradel Bookwork – Opening Lines · 11:19pm Apr 13th, 2016

Well, I'll say this: I'm less dead than I look.

Anyway, today I'd like to take a moment to talk about opening lines. We've got an Original Short Story Writeoff finishing up this evening.[1] I've spent a lot of the last week reading and reviewing, and beginning some revisions on an original story of my own. Going through this month's Writeoff entries, though, got me thinking about one of my favorite topics in fiction—and one it seems I've never blogged about before—opening lines.

100th Story Drops Tomorrow! · 5:18pm Mar 28th, 2020

What it says on the tin, folks. The first chapter of my 100th(!) story will be dropping at 7 pm EST tomorrow. It's the start of my adventure anthology for all the lore and parts of the mythos that never quite got their own solo tales. There will be lots about the Alicorns, other divine, and the origin of many species. For the three people and their alts that follow Missing Pages & Scrawled Footness, you'll like this one if there's stuff in the main arc you wished to see even a bit of in

State of the Author: December · 4:49am Dec 13th, 2019

That’s right, it’s December, and I’ve managed to get one of these out two months in a row, which is, like, totally a record.

Also, fair warning, some of the pony pictures might not be topical; that’s because I’ve got several tabs open with ones I was gonna use for a story or blog art for said story but at the rate things are going, I’ll’ve replaced my computer before that particular story sees the light of day.

I was too lazy to bother with a title, but this is my return blog. I'm fully back from my hiatus. Hurrah! I'm also constantly tired in 2018, hooray! This however, hasn't stopped me from writing. Consider this the update blog and the future of my writing blog that most people have posted in the first days of 2018, since that is what this will contain.

Enemy of Mine & More Updates! (or, Ice Star Actually Writes Things) · 2:37am Mar 6th, 2019

It's probably been a while, or maybe I'm just too quiet lately. I'm not sure. Either way, let's talk story updates. Even though I can't write in the same way I used to (mostly because I'd need, like, more three of me to keep up with all the shit I want to do in general) I've still been getting stuff done! It may not be three stories updating near-monthly or a hecking bunch of more substantial new one-shots popping out every few weeks, but it's something. Get those below the break!
