Scene Separators, and Other functionalities: An Informative Guide to my Writing · 12:55pm Jun 9th, 2017

Hello all! It is about time I do something like this. For the next few weeks (possibly) I’ll be doing these little guides to my writing. What these will entail is little bits and bops that I do in my writing. Most of which can be figured out by looking at them... but this is a clear guide, and will basically be the rules that I follow for them. Worded a little wrong, but I’ll leave it... anyway. Below the break I will talk about... well what the title talks about: line breaks, or whatever they

Mini Guide: Getting Featured · 1:19am Jan 31st, 2017

Getting a story featured is a combination of reader count, likes vs. dislikes, age, and momentum. This means get lots of readers fast, and get them to like and comment. For subsequent chapters, you want the original readers to watch and favorite the story so they’ll be notified right away when you update.

How to get lots of readers fast:

Being a Better Writer: Ideas and Education · 7:16pm Jul 27th, 2015

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you had a productive weekend. I know I did. I did some more editing on Beyond the Borderlands (who's excited for chapter 18?) and, at long last, finished up reading Ancillary Justice and put together my thoughts on it on my other site. Whether you've heard of Ancillary Justice or not, you might find it worth a read.

The Lazy Artist's guide to windows · 6:17am June 5th

I've found that drawing windows for buildings SUCK
they're time consuming, you have to have set ups and guides to align them perfectly,
and even if you do align them, they tend to look too clean and mechanical that it's plain...UGLY
so here is my guide to to a rougher and faster way to draw windows

About Guiding Light · 4:26pm May 29th, 2018

Is anyone still tracking this story? I'm not whining (I promise) I know it's my own fault for not posting for so long, but I'm trying to decide if I need to post the new chapter in the next couple of days or not. I've finished about half of the next chapter and if I need to I can crank out the rest in a day or so, but I wanted to make sure that at least somebody is still waiting on it before I neglect sleep to finish it. Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know, also feel free to tell me

(Dis)Continuity Guide · 1:58am Jul 30th, 2018

I've only written six stories and people are already confused about certain overarching elements in them. This is understandable, given that I haven't really explained that my stories are part of a series. This blog post is an attempt to rectify this error. This is the reading order that I believe makes the most sense for my stories, though there is an awful lot of wiggle room in there. If you want to read a given story by itself, there's usually not much need to read any earlier stories in

More on Discord's Guide to Draconequui · 5:50pm Mar 12th, 2015

So in the last piece I published on this blog, Princess Twilight Sparkle's preface to Discord's magnum opus here, I established that according to Twilight, this work is filled with words, most of which are in sentences that are syntactically accurate. Here's some of the actual work that she's talking about, though I still feel as if I need to write more of it before I could publish it as a story.

LOPE Explanation (Don't Panic) seven. · 8:19pm Apr 22nd, 2017

Alright. Okay, alright. Today has been a productive day. Once again, I have informed a party of passengers who were oblivious to their own plight, only knowing they might have one. I may have ranted again, no intent to ramble. But what can I do? They never told us anything in advance, and they cruelly kept it a secret even when the opportunity was ripe. Water under the bridge, I suppose. What's worse is how woefully unprepared they were to do anything, it's a miracle it even had *some*

LOPE Explanation (Don't Panic) three. · 4:02am Mar 17th, 2017

Is there any particular reason I am being escorted up a fire escape on a building that hasn't seen a good word in two decades? And is there a point to whatever they want to show me? I emerged in the middle of the desert five days ago, an Amtrak passenger with dozens and dozens of others, and never thought the populace would vanish. Only recently did I get an explanation on how or why we had all been distorted in an awkward manner, and made to endure a painful lecture that can't be true.

LOPE Explanation (Don't Panic) four. · 8:09pm Apr 1st, 2017

I have been boozed out of my brains for the past six hours. For good reason. I don't find losing all contact with any and all acquaintances a particularly pleasurable experience!. Never you mind having your body and all the equipment it came with taken away for good. God damn it. Damn them all to hell. I think I hate Equestrians. I'd burn them all into oblivion if the chance made itself presentable. They meddled in thing that ought not to be meddled in. They rubbed salt into an

Being a Better Writer: Setting Sights Higher · 9:16pm Aug 3rd, 2015

Today's topic, despite its lateness, is one that I feel is important. It's not a long topic, nor do I think it will take much time to discuss, but it's something that needs to be said.

Set your sights higher.

In fairness, that's a good statement ... but it's also pretty vague. So, what am I actually talking about? Let's start with a little backstory.

How to attract readers' attention, a half-baked guide regarding metadata and the like: · 5:20am Nov 30th, 2017

Disclaimer here:

This is not a guide on how to write better. Improving how you write is a matter of time and practice. This guide is a culmination of general observation and trial-and-error as to what people look for in a story and what will net you a higher view count. I'm not a spectacular writer, but I do know how to recognize what people want to see.

* And yes, I realize the inherent irony in posting this as a blog rather than as a forum thread.
