    Iron Author 2016 Winners · 6:30am May 25th, 2016

    Hi Everyone, Xepher here. As most of you know, Everfree Northwest took place almost two weeks ago, and we had a fantastic convention. Part of that was the Iron Author contest, where victims contestants were challenged to plan, write, and (if possessing superhuman skill) edit a story in exactly two hours. Entries had to include all three of this year's prompt items: Food, Future, and Facsimile.

    We had around 30 entries this year, and those can all be viewed/read on the contest site for at least the next month. I want to congratulate everyone who participated, both for putting up with our technical difficulties, and for completing anything at all in such a short time. This really is meant to be an "impossible" deadline, and I'm always amazed at the level of quality that participants manage every year.

    The Admiral is in Seattle!

    And when I arrived, it was raining, thus validating everything that I believe about the city. One of the locals says that it doesn't always rain in Seattle, but I choose not to believe him.

    Events, delays and plans · 2:02pm Apr 18th, 2016

    lot of things have happened since my last blog.

    First of all, let me thanks you all for your patience, endurance and support. I hope you've managed to find something you enjoy in my works :)

    Now onto what has happened. Most notably, I was fortunate to win a Pinkie in EFNW's Scribblefest 2016 with Give A Like - Feed A Changeling.

    Huge thanks to Xepher, the organizers, the judges and everyone that made the contest happen :D

    And that's not all! Wing did a live reading on his stream (Wiiiiing!!!), as well as NeonGreenTiger, who has his own Reading Group established now.

    Everfree Northwest 2016 and Scribblefest Contest! · 1:50pm Jan 19th, 2016

    And so it begins... Convention season is upon us, and I, Xepher, am once again your friendly neighborhood writing track lead for Everfree Northwest. We've been rather silent during the off-season, but that's about to change as things start spinning up. We're working to bring you the best writing events in the fandom once again, and hope that many of you can join us this spring in Seattle for three days of ponies and writing... and music, art, gaming, show guests, and all that other boring, non-writing stuff too. :pinkiehappy:

    Some key things to know this year:

    1. EFNW is in Seattle, May 13-15, 2016
    2. We've moved down the street, and are now at the DoubleTree Hotel by Seatac
    3. If you're planning to attend, let me know! We're looking to involve as many from the writing community as we can.
    4. Check out https://everfreenw.com/ for more info

    Scribblefest 2016 Finalists! · 1:57am Apr 7th, 2016

    EDIT: Winners have been announced.

    Scribblefest 2016 Finalists!

    Art by Dark Flame http://darkflame75.deviantart.com/

    Our judges have been hard at work reading through all the stories submitted, and we've moved onto the final round of judging. Our rules allowed each judge to nominate up to one story per award, and those stories advanced to the final round. Some stories were also nominated for multiple awards, though no story may actually WIN more than one. You'll notice that many awards have fewer contenders, as many stories were often nominated by multiple judges. Also note, all stories are listed more or less in the order they were submitted. Position in these lists has nothing to do with current scoring.


    Disclaimers aside, on to the nominations!

    Hap Recommends Scribblefest Entries #2 · 12:50pm Mar 9th, 2016

    And I'm back for round 2! I've gotten through another three stories that have all been submitted to the 2016 Scribblefest and I'm going to give my own thoughts regarding whether I liked them or not and who I'd recommend them to, depending on your tastes. Hopefully a few of you will find something cool to read from these blogs, and if you already found something you enjoyed, please post it in the comments below, so I can make reading it a priority.

    You'll also have to forgive me for mostly having little but slice of life (minus one) so far: it's just what seems to be cropping up for now. Hopefully we'll get some more tags in later.

    Onto the rec's!

    Scribblefest 2016 Entries · 8:18am Mar 14th, 2016

    Submissions ended one week ago for Scribblefest 2016, and our panel of judges has been hard at work reading through all the submissions and evaluating them. In our initial round (which will likely take another week or so) each judge is nominating up to one story per award to move on to the next round. While we await the results of this first round however, I know many of you are anxious to read them yourselves and see what the competition is like. I've collected all the entered stories (minus ones disqualified for rules violations) in a folder in the EFNW fimfic group. You can find the entries here:

    Hap Recommends Scribblefest #7: Take With Food · 4:33pm Mar 14th, 2016

    Like I mentioned in my last one of these, I've stopped reading through three at a time because I've been getting much busier, and will only be reading and giving my thoughts on stories that either get requested or recommended to me directly. So there's only going to be one story in this one, I'm afraid.

    Take With Food was requested by the author, so I decided to give it a look in-between lectures. If anyone else has something they'd like me to take a look at, feel free to comment below. With that, onto my thoughts.

    "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." · 9:33am Mar 3rd, 2016

    I wanted to enter the Everfree Northwest Scribblefest 2016, so I tried my hand at a bit of horror again, not to mention I wanted to write some Princess Celestia, since I rarely do anything with her in it (excluding something else I wrote lately). Given the boundaries of the contest, I had to be concise and avoid relying on blood & guts to instill fear, instead focusing on the concept "how can you have hope in Hell?"

    I think it turned out pretty well. You be the judge: (link)

    Also, have some music to go along with it. I've been told it's quite fitting:

    Hap Recommends Moar Scribblefest #6 · 4:10pm Mar 12th, 2016

    Hello again. This time around I've been trying to look for stories that got less exposure than some of the others I looked for in the hopes of finding some really good ones that might have simply fallen by the wayside. Unfortunately, that plan seems to have backfired since a few of them didn't really do much for me. However, this is why I haven't read other, heavily viewed stories with very large ratings. In fact, some of these stories had so few votes that they simply didn't show up.

    I've also been trying to sneakily avoid reading ones that TheHatMan has also looked at, since he's been reviewing a few too.

    So, if you're interested, take a look below for some more EFNW Scribblefest 2016 entries that you might find it in yourself to read and enjoy. Avanti!

    Sky Blue Bro Notes · 12:33am March 5th

    Hello everyone. Like I mentioned in my previous blog post, I wanted to kind of go over the different iterations Sky Blue Bro went through. It actually went through an awful lot of changes from inception to publishing, and a lot of ideas were scrapped, changed, and tweaked for various reasons, ranging from trying to keep under the word count (on GDocs Sky Blue Bro got to 6000 words exactly, whereas on FimFiction it went about a hundred and fifty words over, as bloody usual), but also to convey different ideas.

    EFNW 2017 Epicness · 3:45am May 17th

    Just a reminder that I have a Discord server now! Come on over and chat! I promise much SunLight. (And since Tchernobog’s around, there’s a ton of AppleDash. And since Monochromatic’s around, there’s a ton of RariTwi!)

    Happy Tuesday everyone!

    So, I just did a thing! In the Northwest. And they had this song before it…

    Actually, I thought that was seriously clever.

    Phew. Cons are awesome, but exhausting. They are both awesomely exhausting and exhaustingly awesome. You know, I kept wondering why I was just so tired all the time at EFNW, until Ebon was nice enough to point it out to me. I think it was Ebon. A lot of the last few days are a bit of a blur…

    Another Blog About the Weekend · 2:04am May 20th

    Obligatory

    So, while at Everfree Northwest, I met and hung out with a ton of cool artists, many of whom I bought prints from. One station in particular was run by a very nice pair who kept dressing up as different paired ponies (but I have them in my memory as Celestia/Luna because they put a lot of work into their outfits.) One was YoshiMarsArt and the other was NyteWell. While hanging out at their table, I saw someone had one of those sketchbook things and had gone around the con getting sketch commissions from all the artists, all of Limestone Pie. I thought it was a really neat idea and decided to shamelessly copy it, which resulted in the five sketch commissions below!

    First, by YoshiMarsArt

    Second, by Tony Fleecs

    Hap Recommends Scribblefest #8: My Flight · 4:12pm Mar 25th, 2016

    This story was introduced to me after reading Hat Man's reviews on other Scribblefest stories, and it immediately piqued my interest for a large number of reasons. The first was some similarities between this and my own entry, as both featured an Earth pony taking to the skies, as well as being more interested in the technical aspects of it, which appealed to my engineering background. I have, in fact, studied aerospace and find it very interesting.

    So, I decided to give this one a look, making it the twentieth Scribblefest story that I've read and reviewed (excluding my own, of course). It came recommended from Hat Man, so I was keen to see what it had to offer! Let's dive in.
