Chapter 16 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 4:20am Sep 26th, 2017

Well, kind of flew through this chapter, but hope it has some nice, emotional moments to it.

I did struggle with it for a bit, because I felt it could have become very 'talky.' Because of that (and fearing it'd easily go over 10,000 words), I decided to 'streamline' the chapter, with summaries, and giving characters dialogue, when I felt it was necessary.

Chapter 14 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 9:32pm Aug 13th, 2017

Whew! Was gonna wait until the middle of the week, but was too excited to keep this in any longer!

This was one of those 'tentpole' chapters that was like the dessert at the end of another meal-course. I had to 'slog' through some character development and not-so-hot storytelling to get here, but I'm pretty sure it'll find some fans and get some cheers (though I'm sure I'll be met with plenty of 'meh's.').

Chapter 3 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 8:41am Jan 8th, 2017

Well, was going to do some more rough drafting on an upcoming chapter this weekend, but hit a bit of a rocky outcrop. So, what is a guy to do? Review/revise/release Chapter 3!

Originally, I was going to do a new chapter every 3 weeks, but if I keep with the schedule I have now, I will keep up a bi-weekly release.

Chapter 6 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 7:00pm Feb 25th, 2017

Yeah, it kind of broke my 2-week cycle of releasing a new chapter, but given that I've had a few extra thumbs up in the ratings area (and my first thumbs-down since the early days of the story), I decided to put this chapter up, a few days beforehand!

I will admit that when it comes to writing these stories, the word count gets drastically different when bringing the document into Fimfic's toolset.

Chapter 7 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up, and an update! · 5:58pm Mar 18th, 2017

Well, sound of the gun, but I got Chapter 7 up before I have to take off for a Friend's party today!

This is a pretty crucial chapter, despite it seeming to be a lot of nothing...but there definitely is something there.

I can't tell much more than that, as I want those who are my avid readers, to give this chapter (the longest one yet!), a read.

Extra-special thanks to Coral Leaf and Hyperstorm_H for the new cover art! · 4:21am Jan 31st, 2017

If some of you have seen the early comments on my story, "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf," you might have seen a number of people were horrified and disgusted with the art I had originally put together for the cover.

However, while a scant few seemed to feel the first chapter had potential, my first attempts at anthro-pony art had some assuming that the artwork would horrify and turn people away. So, I gave into the criticism, and removed it.

Chapter 5 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up, and a few other words. · 3:01am Feb 14th, 2017

Well, after an extra-long Birthday week last week (with a day spent cleaning, a workplace party with drinks and frivolity, and a party with friends over the weekend), I finally got finished setting up and sending out Chapter 5!

Given the few words I've seen so far (and the added 'thumbs up' and 'favorites'), it looks like I'm actually doing okay with this story.

Plus, the 'energy drink buzz' of seeing the positives, has got my brain functioning again on how to 'spice up' Chapter 7!

Chapter 8 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 11:02pm Apr 30th, 2017

Well, finally got off my caboose and got this chapter proofread, and released!

As explained before, after the rather lukewarm reception to the last chapter (which marks a turning point in the story!), I got a bit low, though thanks to Dommy128 and AppleOrPie for their little pep-talks.

Chapter 17 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is still coming · 5:10pm Oct 14th, 2017

For those wondering, yes, I am still working on the story.

I actually went to Manhattan for 4 days last week, and have been rolling the experience around in my head, to see if I could work some of what I saw into the next chapter.

I'm hoping to have something in the next week, but we're still on course.

Chapter 10 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 4:21pm May 29th, 2017

Well, we finally reached the double-digits, and a rather important turning-point chapter with this one.

Most of this was written on a trip I took a few weeks ago, though as I've gotten this far in the story, it can be kind of difficult to get my thoughts and feelings out regarding what is coming up.

Things are coming, that I think even I am wondering if I can pull off...

Chapter 9 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 5:00pm May 12th, 2017

Phew! Got that up before my 4-day weekend started!

The month of April is kind of a strange month for me. I was telling my Dad on the phone a few weeks ago, that it's felt that way since I was a teen, and I think it has to do with April being that 'transitional' month, between Winter and Spring.

Well, a little early, but what the hey!

Here we get into some more character development regarding Coral Leaf's parents, and Applejack learning a few things about them, and their lifestyle.

Well, took a little while, but we finally got another chapter out!

You know some things you have to do, but it probably would be a lot simpler if you didn't do it?...that's what this chapter felt like.

Chapter 11 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 8:22pm Jun 10th, 2017

Well, definitely didn't expected the amount of comments after chapter 10. Guess it makes up for the rather 'bored' tone from the massive expansion at the end of the Cider Festival dance chapter.

Chapter 11 I feel is where we start entering 'the third act' of this story, and I hope some will find a few more things to enjoy here, as we build more story, and introduce some new characters that I really had a fun time creating, and developing a backstory for.

Chapter 17 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 4:05pm Oct 21st, 2017

Well, finally got that taken care of!

It was a struggle to find the through-line with this chapter. Heck, I almost just considered not writing it, but then, I'd be denying us a chance to see Coral and Applejack, tag-teaming on a little family assignment. It's not a big thing, but I felt it was nice to see how far they've come, and AJ, seeing that Coral really wants something, says, "let's go get it!"

Ch 4 of "The Expansive Romance of Applebloom and Coral Leaf" is now up! · 6:49am Jan 25th, 2017

Well, thought I probably would have put this out earlier this evening, but found I had some touch-ups to make that needed to be made!

I think this chapter will really be a fun one for people to read. We're moving a bit beyond the character set-ups, and more into the 'meat' of the story.
