Life of Syn - We Bought a House! · 3:51am Sep 5th, 2015

It happened!!!

I took a half day of work, and this afternoon, we did a final walkthrough, met the sellers for the first time, signed our names about fifty times (official count pending), and now, finally, after so many months of work, my husband and I are the proud owners of a soul-crushing amount of debt a house!!!

Life of Syn - HOLY CRAP IT'S JUNE? · 4:14am Jun 3rd, 2016

(Stick around - there's good news at the end of the blog!)

This happens to me every freaking year. :facehoof: I don't know why, but the first of June to me is always this wake-up call that the year is roughly half over, and it's a pretty start reminder of how quickly time has been passing.

So what the hell have I been doing with my time?

Life of Syn - Chapter 42, Facing Frustration, and Whinny City · 4:00am Jan 18th, 2017

Crazy couple months, right?

I'd say I've been quiet lately, but it's more like I've been directing my incredibly loud voice elsewhere. If you follow me on Twitter, you've no doubt seen that I've been very vocal with my representative since the election. It's been hard to get a straight answer from him, but I got to speak to him once, and I'm sure as hell going to continue as long as I see ways we can improve. But enough politics! Let's get on to ponies!

Life of Syn - Speeding Up, Slowing Down, & the Aptness of Purple · 5:33am Mar 10th, 2017

One of the most important concepts in storytelling is pacing.

It's true! I'm arriving late Thursday evening and staying until Monday morning. I'll probably go to a bunch of the writing track stuff and then try to hang out with folks as much as possible.

If you're going, make sure to say hi!

"Sensation - Appleloosa" - Thank You! · 1:35am Aug 31st, 2018

Hey there, folks!

I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone that's checked out "Sensation - Appleloosa" so far. I usually try to go and thank everyone individually, but between a trip to urgent care and my car being on its last wheels, life's kind of sucking up all my horse time right now.

Ciderfest · 3:02am Oct 15th, 2018

Hi, folks,

Ciderfest is less than two weeks away. I hope you can all make it, and if you can't, you'll be able to find some of the panels up on the Ciderfest YouTube page after the convention.

I'm the Programming Director this year, so I'll have my hooves full. I'll try to post more info as we get closer, but realistically, I won't have much time between now and then.

Listen to me talk inappropriately about horses! · 3:38am Oct 25th, 2017

Hey there, all!

FIM Fiction's very own JPegasus19 interviewed me recently for his YouTube series, "Interview a Fimfiction Writer." Check it out to hear me talk about my favorite horses, random boners, and why I love to write about background characters. If you've ever wanted to know what I sound like or what I like to talk about during convention panels, now's your chance!

Visibility: A Letter to my Closeted Family · 3:21am Jul 3rd, 2018

Today, a reader told me something that brought a tear to my eye: I'd helped them come out as gay to their parents.

A lot of feelings raced through my head and my heart as I read the message: happiness for them for taking the plunge, relief once they said it had gone mostly well, pride that my work had some small part in it, and joy that, with every person who comes out, the world gets a little brighter for the next person that realizes they're queer.

"Sensation" at Ciderfest · 2:09am Oct 25th, 2018

Hey there, folks!

In case you're going to Ciderfest, I'll have copies of the physical edition of "Sensation" available. As always, they'll be pay-what-you-want with a suggested price of $35, and I'll be happy to sign them.

If you want a good time to find me, I'm giving a panel called "Start to Finish: Starting and Ending Your Story" on Friday at 3:30 in the Caramel room. I hope to see you there!

Life of Syn - Work & Vacation & Furry Migration! (Also House) · 7:58pm Aug 29th, 2015

G'day!

I'm sitting here at Furry Migration volunteering at registration, and we've hit a lull. That... tends to happen on the afternoons of day 2 at cons, I'm told. So rather than just sit here mugging for the camera....


Lookit this jerk.

...I wanted to give y'all an update.

Hey there, folks!

This is your reminder to come hang out at Everfree Northwest, one week from today! You can see my schedule above, and I'll be around the con when I'm not in a panel. It's going to be a great show, so don't miss it!

Life of Syn - Convention Overload, JINGLEMAS!!!, and something for the pervs · 4:08am November 26th

Hello, folks!

It turns out that running three conventions in a year ends up taking all your pony time. Who knew? I regret not posting much during the finale and not doing more one-shot storytelling, but sometimes you just have to direct the programming for a few thousand people, you know?

But we're back!
