Failed Submission! · 6:04pm Jan 1st, 2017

So my story failed submission for not being MLP enough or something, despite having talking horses. I've got the CMC coming up in a chapter so hopefully that will make it pony enough to get through. If not, I'll just go somewhere else, idk.

Happy Memorial Day! · 5:57pm May 30th, 2016

Hey everyone. It's Memorial Day, so there won't be a Being a Better Writer post today. I'd like to say it'll be tomorrow ... but I also work tomorrow and Wednesday, so the best I can say is "It will be up when I can get it up."

Also, for you Patreon supporters, this month's reward will go up tomorrow. Another advance look at a sequence from the Colony Alpha.

Hello World! · 5:10pm Dec 26th, 2016

Well, I never thought I'd get around to it, but here I am. I made a Fimfiction account. I'm going to post the stories. They're going to be great. Or maybe they won't be great but I'll still post them. What fun! :heart:

I do have a story in the works that's been in development hell for a long, long time. I thought maybe registering an account and telling a bunch of people on the Internet might be the push I need to keep working on it. So, uh, yeah. That's something.

State of the Unicorn, February 2018 · 11:52pm Feb 15th, 2018

Come on, who could resist that title? Anyway, although this is the sort of thing I generally put on Louder Yay, I thought a brief update might be in order for those of you who are kind enough to follow me here. Don't expect this sort of thing every month, nor for me to go into great detail. It's just a quick summary.

Quick update · 5:44pm May 31st, 2018

I'm off on holiday on Saturday, so I won't see the next two episodes for some while. Also, no, I haven't abandoned writing. I'm embarrassed to admit that my so-called block-breaker bit of silliness (The Danger Within) has stalled, but I do have most of chapter five ready. One more small scene will do it, but I doubt that will be done before I go away. There's also another little one-shot that's about two-thirds done, plus another (more serious) story in outline. Anyway, maybe the

A Note About Broken YouTube Links · 7:21pm Nov 15th, 2018

So occasionally I’ll check outgoing links on my site from the control panel I’ve got, just to see what people are following, or in the case of YouTube links, watching. Sometimes I’ll use YouTube to show a video that serves as a good example of something.

Easter break · 7:28pm Mar 28th, 2018

I'll be away visiting relatives for a few days over Easter, so I may well not get a chance to see (or review) episode 3 for a little while. I'll try to catch up when I get back. Also, a sudden avalanche of Stuff That Needs Doing Yesterday has meant I haven't been able to keep to my intention of putting chapter 5 of The Danger Within up by month's end. My apologies for that. It is coming as soon as I can, though.

Two Years Online: Looking Back and Racing Forward · 9:55pm Mar 3rd, 2017

Biting Off More Than I Can Chew? · 9:05pm Jan 13th, 2017

Almost.

Yes, I've been fairly quiet over the last two or three weeks outside of the Being a Better Writer posts. And the reason for that is that I've been keeping very busy.

How busy? In the last week and a half, despite having family in town and pulling hours at my part time job, I've managed not only to get both BaBW posts done and up, but also 20,000+ words done on Jungle.

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?

No Being a Better Writer Post at This Time · 4:59pm Oct 10th, 2016

Work on Colony must move forward with all possible speed, so this week’s Being a Better Writer post is being delayed until I get Beta 1 finished.

I know. I’d rather not do it. But I figure that I’ve gone ahead and posted on several holidays this year that I could have taken off, so overall I think everyone’s at a net positive anyway.

Back to work! This book isn’t going to finish itself!

Weekly Update · 7:19pm Oct 25th, 2015

No new stuff yet, sadly. My English professor thought it okay to deviate from the schedule and tell my class last Tuesday that she was bumping up the date for our next essay's rough draft.

To that Thursday.

Needless to say, that threw off my groove. I'm working to finish that last Obamaverse chapter, and I've got the start of a Fear: Equestrian Mythos chapter/story that I'm trying to get done by Halloween.

just venting.... · 6:00pm Dec 14th, 2016

So I saw the unfair side of the internet some today. I usually do a pretty good job of keeping my nose out of trouble, but it seems like I didn't this time. I was on a subreddit for DC comics because I really enjoy them recently, but anyways there was a thread about an article on the upcoming Harley Quinn project: Gotham City Sirens movie. I mentioned, like others did, concerns about them race swapping characters since Hollywood does that. I went further and mentioned how they will also

Sleepy, Tired, Post-Christmas Days · 7:34pm Dec 28th, 2015

Hey guys, Viking here!

So, no Being a Better Writer post today, for a few reasons. The writing-based reasons are that I'm currently busy with getting ready for the new year, including planning out my goals and schedule for the coming months. As I've got a book coming out in a few weeks, that plannings got a very visceral feel, but I also want to see about making sure my writing goals for this year are accurate and keeping me up to speed.

Yup, I'm an American. And that means that once a year, when July 4th rolls around, I freaking love it.

Okay, yes, I know it's tomorrow. But back home, when I was younger, it was a multi-day celebration (I believe it's up to a week of events, now).

Amazonian Advertising Practices · 6:36pm Apr 13th, 2018

It's all here!

So, for the last month, I’ve been experimenting with Amazons Marketing Services. Or, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, what amounts to paying Amazon in exchange for Amazon running ads for your product based on keywords and the like. So if someone searches for, say, The Expanseon Amazon right now in the books section, Colonycomes up, because the two are similar Science-Fiction.
