Outline · 6:12pm Dec 24th, 2016

The following is a bit spoilery, as it contains the rough outline I have in mind for "Crystal Heart".
Please do not read if you want to be spoilered, or unless I haven't posted anything within a year.

Crystal Heart looks a bit more into the past of Equestria. It is inspired by many works, but ignores some of the comic-lore.

The Measure of a Dragon Original Outline · 3:46pm Mar 9th, 2017

It's almost the one year anniversary of the most popular story I've written on Fimfiction thus far. :pinkiehappy: It's an absolute pleasure to remember the writing process, and an even greater joy to remember how one person's advice completely changed the story. I reached out to someone for help with character names and they made me rewrite the character of Dr. Saffron and created Silver Stone. I owe this person everything for this story's success and for spending hours on a phone helping me

Life Changes · 10:10pm Nov 25th, 2016

What it says on the tin. There were a lot of life changes that took place in the past 2 months which included a cross-country move and yet another round of job hunts. I'm still not exactly where I'd like to be, but I'm settled enough to resume work on the book.

Sequel Plans (Update, kinda...) · 5:24am Oct 27th, 2019

If y'all don't know how much of a procrastinator I am, then buckle up. I'm probably the laziest writer here.

But I've got some good news! I've written down some sort of outline for the sequel! That's better than nothing, right?

The whole story is planned. It'll go something like this (I'll cover up the somewhat spoiler-y material if you want to be totally surprised):

  • Probably 8 chapters

Here is an interesting challenge for me · 1:46pm Oct 28th, 2015

So a lot of people know me as that guy who can come up with ideas. Not just those who know me online, but also based on my adoption blogs. But I want to really challenge myself.

As such, I ask people to send me an MLP image of any kind (except NSFW) and I will come up with a complete story outline for that image. Why am I doing this? Well, I'm trying to move my brain into continuing writing Death of Button Mash so I need something to pump me up.

I'm still alive! · 9:41pm Jan 11th, 2015

If any of you actually pay attention to stuff I do (probably not), you might remember little mentions (like this and this) of a bigger story involving minotaurs that I was really excited to get started on. I'm still really excited for it, and it keeps looking better and better. Lily and Binary were both done really,

Why I Hated "A Royal Problem," and What I Wish It Had Done · 8:54pm Jul 8th, 2017

This week, Chris had a blog post detailing his problems with S7E10: Princess Freaky Friday“A Royal Problem.” It’s a good one, and I think very worth checking out. My response, like his, was that I hated the episode more than any other possibly going back as far as Season 3. (S4 for him, actually; I disliked some stuff in S3 more

Outline: To Cure Deception · 12:56am Mar 12th, 2016

Continuing on my work of providing examples for my Cumulative Advice blog, no advice is in need of examples more than Outlines. My previous outline posted for DotFR followed the format I call "Proof of Concept" being structured very much the same way a mathematical proof is. Different stories need different styles of outlines, however, and To Cure Deception is very much a chronological headfuck, because it would be a

Organization-schmorganization · 5:30am Jan 16th, 2016

So I did this huge outline with lots of pretty notes, but I'm deviating from it so hard right now, it's almost comical. It was pretty detailed story planning I did too. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother trying, lol.

It's not a complete waste, though! I'm still using the outline to help with my story direction. And the deviations I came up with are feeling really REALLY good. But it does mean I have to stop and assess just how much tweaking my changes will require. :facehoof:

Second Outline · 4:05pm January 30th

40K words in, I'm writing a second, even more detailed outline for FoE: Pillars of Society. I've added a couple of plot threads, added a twist...

No, not that kind. Wait, did she survive the war? This is pretty early on in the timeline. 40 EoH or so. It's possible.

Episode 50: Progress Report 2 · 1:17pm Oct 4th, 2017

Okay, it's been a REALLY long time since you guys have heard from me. I'm really sorry about that. Truth is, outlining the next duel is kicking my butt something fierce. And t's not even because of what I was afraid of- Dash and Paradox getting in each other's way on the Duel Field- but rather because I can't seem to find the right cards for them to counter Antinomy's new strategies that doesn't leave them incredibly vulnerable. That's not to say that I WON'T find solutions, it's just

Make an outline for your chapters! · 5:50am Apr 16th, 2016

The outline is a basic part of writing, it is so simple yet so vital for a writer to do in order to be successful, whether it be a fanfiction or a real story you plan to publish as a career, the outline is needed. Yet how many of us actually make an outline? I know I didn't until just recently, and writing has become so much easier now. It keeps me organized and I know what is going to happen before I start writing so I can get it all written down and start the editing process, I will get into

The SWM (A Characterization Tool I Made Up) · 8:44am Jun 27th, 2018

Long-time followers of mine will notice I often make reference to original fiction I’ve been working on. The project in question has hip-hopped and changed numerous times, and my short attention span and work schedule are certainly contributing factors.
