It's quite sad seeing Big Writers leave the site · 9:54am Nov 24th, 2020

Over the course of this site's history many big named writers have left. Writers with great stories and large following.

So, is there any big writers you miss?

As of recent, B_25 is now leaving as of 2020.

My first official debut novel · 10:12pm Dec 14th, 2019

Hello ladies and gentlemen, feels like years since I've written something on here, but I feel like announcing that I'm an official author with a thriller dark supernatural fiction novel One Girl's Army that follows a girl who loses her brother in a tragic accident and now a supernatural entity of darkness haunts her with the promise of bringing her dead brother back to life. Also, this book has two endings to make reading an enjoyable and immersive experience.

Being a Better Writer: Coming At Things Anew - Beating "Writer's Block" · 9:16pm Jun 22nd, 2015

So, I learned something new this weekend. It turns out, if you overdo your carpal tunnel preventative exercises, you will prevent carpal tunnel ... but you can also give yourself tendinitis.

Whoops.

Yeah, so my right arm is nice and comfy in an ace bandage while I type this. It shouldn't get in the way of my writing too much, but let my tale be a cautionary one: you can be too preventative of carpal tunnel, apparently.

My problems with the view counter: alternative view for views · 9:50pm Feb 21st, 2018

6/10:applejackunsure:
Seriously, has anyone checked to make sure the view mechanics are inflatable proof? It's counts anything that views it unless they're refreshing the page, going to the next chapter, book mark it, or continuing when using another tab. That seems reasonable at first until you realize that it has two major loophole and one minor one.

It all stems from the main problem, it counts anyone viewing it whether published or unpublished!:fluttershbad:

State of the Author - September 2019 · 12:13am Oct 19th, 2019

So you may notice this blog comes over halfway through the month, for a retrospect of last month.

There is a reason for that. Call it about 160 working hours in the month so far, and then a professional exam that I had to study for and write in between that.

Mining the Writer's block · 3:44pm Oct 13th, 2015

As of late, between work, life and all-the-in-between, I have ran head first into a problem.

Writers block, correction Writer's Block mountain and it has been very hard to scale over as of late. I can only guess that I have been stuck because of the intense amount of stress going on in life as well being tired all the time. one would only think that I have busted my brain to an inoperable point.

But I have to ask folks, how does one get over writers block?

Writers Fear Post 1 · 11:19pm Jul 8th, 2018

Anyone who writes will tell you that there are three points where an author will feel truly afraid. When we write the first chapter or prologue, when we submit the story and whether people will like it. Once you know at least one person likes the story you don't care what criticism you get because there is at least one person who liked it.

On the Implications of Parallel Blockages · 5:06pm Oct 28th, 2020

As many of you probably noticed, On the Implications of Parallel Worlds missed a scheduled update yesterday. Sorry I forgot to make this blog post then instead of today- I got sidetracked. It happens infuriatingly often.

Writer's Block · 4:28pm Sep 30th, 2020

I’m having some writer’s block and was wondering something.

Is it better to wait until I have more ideas, or should I just try to get something out? I really don’t want to just have a bunch of filler in my stories on here, but in all honesty, I’d like to start on yet another story. Tons of them are just there, and I may never actually finish them. Thank you for your time.

Why The Fallen Soldier hasn't been updated · 10:05pm Jul 25th, 2015

Some of you are probably wondering why my story hasn't been updated, you know it takes me a while to update, but it's never THIS long.

Thats probably what you thought? Am I right? Or am I wrong?

Well guys, to be compelty honest, I'm not immune to writers block, I'm suffering from it right now. And in order to tank through it, I'd figured I'd take a break and focus my writing time in something else.

Reviews? Interviews! · 4:51am Feb 21st, 2016

If you have read any of the RCL site-wide blog posts, you should know that they include an interview with the author of the featured story at the bottom. I find these far more interesting that the stories or the reviews, usually.

Soo... · 7:56am May 6th, 2016

Well if any of you looked at my 'story' you can tell I'm not a writer. I've got plenty of ideas just sitting here on my iPad (some for over two years now!) but I basically have permanent writers block. Not that I've been able to write in the past then got writers block, and have subsequently given up, but I've never been able to adequately express myself through writing (or any art for that matter).

SWEET CELESTIA I HATE WRITER'S BLOCK · 2:24am Sep 12th, 2015

Four Ponies & A Time Machine is in a writer's block.
The future story Carnegie Porter vs. The World is in a writer's block.
The only stories I can actually write for are I, Scrappy and Dogs. Hopefully, my block will go down and I can figure out what to do next for the TROTIS crew. If you have any ideas, PLEASE. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SHARE THEM. I BEG OF YOU.

State of the Author - August 2019 · 1:32am Sep 2nd, 2019

Today will be the first of three blogs. I think I'm going to try a 'State of the Author' and 'State of the Reader' blog each month from now on until my whimsy flags off. State of the Author should be fairly obvious. State of the Reader will be more about the FIMfics I've read, and attempting to compile a word count read. The third one this month will be a one-off combined on my BronyCon experience, all the cons I've been to, and somewhere between a brief and an exhaustive personal retrospective

When's the Last Time You Wrote a Good Story? · 12:42am Jan 10th, 2020

For years now I've felt the best of my writing is behind me, as my ADHD, depression, and anxiety plus general personal shittyness have continued to keep me barely functioning and certainly not thriving. I look back and I used to actually sometimes write good stories. I've always written shitfics, but it used to be I'd write more than just shitfics. Now it seems that's all I can write. And it makes me sad.

Op-Ed: Five Things Non-Writers Should Know About Writers and Writing · 5:34pm May 2nd, 2017

So, you may have noticed that despite being in the place of what would normally be a Being a Better Writer post, this isn’t that. And no, it really isn’t. Though if you’re an aspiring writer, this is a good post to read, because it’s going to be helpful, so I’ll leave it tagged under BaBW.

AARGH! Writers Block! · 1:42pm Sep 27th, 2016

As the title says, I'm strugling with a bit of writers block at the moment. :applecry: :raritycry:
I started work on the next chapters some time ago, but for a couple of days now the ideas just refuse to come out, and it's driving me up the freakin wall. :twilightangry2:

Now this might be a bit of a stupid question, but does anyone have any tips or ideas that might help get rid of it? Because at this point I'm open to pretty much any suggestion. :applejackconfused:

Writer's Workshop: The Laws of Details · 10:33pm Jun 10th, 2016

There are two different writers battling in our heads: the mad genius who wants to write a six-million word epic, and the lazy genius who wants to do as little work as possible. You can write like J. R. R. Tolkien, all full of flowery descriptions and thoughtful details, or you can be Ernest Hemingway, with as few words as you need to get your point across. Putting detail into your stories is certainly not an exact science, but there are a few rules and tricks you can keep in mind to

Writer's Workshop: The Con and the Gimmick · 6:23am Jan 23rd, 2016

This time, we're talking about something a little more esoteric. Though, at the same time, I suppose it's also fundamental to the storywriting process. We're gonna talk about what happens when you put two people in a scene and have them talk to each other. To do this, I'm gonna steal two theoretical models from two very different sources: first, from the RPG system called DramaSystem; the second, from a psychological process called "Transactional Analysis."
