Intruder · 12:16pm Aug 14th, 2016

After a break to work on job applications and Smolder, I figured I needed to dust of Equestrian Horizon again.

The next chapter has been outlined and needs to be fleshed out. I was originally intending this to be a shorter interlude-style piece with more action, but as I continued outlining, I found there were additional things that needed to be set in motion. The plot thickens further.

Once again, ETA is "when it's done."

Reader There's a Story on My Page · 8:18am Apr 6th, 2016

Despite all odds I have written another story. I ran an April Story Giveaway on the Quill & Blade forum and aside from Sixkiller5 getting some words out of me I was able to prove an old movie wrong. From the movie War Games there is a quote, "The only way to win is not to play." This is wrong, demonstrably wrong. As Sixkiller5 can attest, you can also win by being the only one to play.

Weird Writing Things · 11:30pm May 20th, 2016

If you've been following me for any extended period of time, you know that I'm a weird kind of dude. I noticed yesterday, whilst finishing the latest chapter of So You Wanna Kill An Alicorn?, that I have some weird tendencies when writing. I thought I'd share some of them.

1) I needlessly rewrite certain lines.

2 Year anniversary and current writing process · 7:06pm Jan 25th, 2016

Today marks two years that I've been on FIMfiction and a very fun two years they've been. I don't know what much else to say other than the fact that I'm glad to be where I am right now and happy that you enjoy reading the result of me mindlessly pounding my keyboard. It fills me with happy. :twilightsmile::heart:

I just realized this is also the first blog post I've had of the new year also, so that's a thing.

The Gift of Words · 2:54am Dec 21st, 2015

First things first. I found it and still find it absolutely hilarious that I was able to get my latest story title to work both as a story title and an accurate description of what it is in a meta sense. Since it is literally a gift of words for a holiday giveaway drawing I ran to give back after all the incredible luck I've had recently when entering other peoples giveaways.

Blue Line of Fate: An analysis of my process... and me · 10:38am Sep 23rd, 2018

Since it's the first thing I've written that ever won a contest (also the first I've ever entered into a contest), I though it might be nice to write a little about how it happened. Even if no one else is interested I'll come back and read this months from now and enjoy the nostalgia. :twilightsmile:

Another Story Another Blog · 6:05am Aug 25th, 2015

Truly I cannot fathom all the writing I have been doing recently. Just to reiterate I have literally not written a single word that wasn't required before the last week in almost 20 years since I was a wee laddy and cute as button. For whatever reason when Crystal Wishes told me that I could add 400 words (are you kidding 400 words) to and actually publish my joke on the site I didn't know what to think. I had made it, this account included originally as part of the joke with no intention to

That was a sort of important chapter here's notes over current chapter · 2:20am May 14th, 2017

Chapter 4 of the story makes it so yes its not just demons, humans, and vampires here in the story. And no I had planned this since literally chapter 2- with Rainbow Dash being mad that Mr Doodle assigned Edward Spenser's Fairie Queen poem.

I'm not dead · 7:31am Oct 23rd, 2017

So I got sucked into Final Fantasy XIV and left Equestrian Horizon to languish unfinished. Then my computer died.

All data is safely backed up on separate drives or in the cloud but I am sans gaming rig for the time being. I am still going to attempt to finish EH by the end of the year. The next chapter, Ouroboros, is done and currently in the proofing and revision phase.

Onward.

Happy New Year!

The next two chapters are outlined and just need to be written: a character-focused interlude called Rehab and a plot-focused chapter named Black Rain.

Rehab will revolve around Firefly's attempts to reconnect with her squad following the fallout on board the Sova while simultaneously attempting to wrap her brain around the extra burden of leadership placed upon her.

Would you be interested in a chart detailing my thought processes? · 5:38pm Mar 27th, 2017

I could throw one together, and it make for a good way to show just how I write, depending on current circumstances.

How not to get yourself hospitalized, or Just because you like Kraft Dinner doesn't mean you are mentally ill. · 3:35am Sep 28th, 2018

As part of my job as a crisis worker, one of the things I need to be able to do is assist in the process of placing people who are mentally ill and in crisis on a hold. Now... a lot of people probably start thinking of getting '5150'd' - to borrow from California's statutory code related mental health hospitalizations - but it's... really more complicated than that. A lot more complicated. So much so that, after visiting Ebon Quill, I ended up having to drive the entire diagonal length

Moving on Update 2 · 8:53am May 17th, 2016

So many things happened. The doc got corrupted and I had to manually unfuck it, then a decent but was missing, then I lost another few hundred words very recently but it's uh, still going and at 1500 words now. Still have to do about half of the date and wrap it up. Then the final event, which I planned to have after John/Silver dated several people, one of them being a long term relationship, will happen almost exactly as planned. I designed it so I could end the fic almost anytime I wanted

Chapter the 6th for Guardian · 2:25am Aug 11th, 2020

It has come to my attention that even though the chapters of Guardian aren't "short" per se, very few scenes have actually played out for you guys. I had planned to have this story move fairly quickly, but I've never been very good with extremely fast-paced stories (reading or writing). Despite this, I plan on making this next chapter a little larger than usual, which means stuff will happen rather than seemingly "pointless" exposition. I promise it is there for a reason.

Thoughts on writing and The Fifth Session of EoT · 6:50am Jul 9th, 2018

So it appears I can comfortably manage to write about 10k words a week, plus a few thousand more if I’m on a roll. Which is roughly 1400 words a day. That’s unacceptable. “Wait, what the hell?” I hear you cry out. “That’s like an entire story, every day! How is that unacceptable!?” Well, you person who probably didn’t say that. There’s a bit of backstory to that number, or more importantly, to the number 1,667. Waaaaay back in 2006, my sister introduced me to a little thing called

Defect · 4:56am Oct 28th, 2017

Things I discovered writing this piece:

  • I suck at naming stories and chapters.
  • I suck at writing synposes.
  • I cannot post pieces to FiMFiction without titles or synposes, so my terrible ones will have to suffice.
  • I only have a partial idea of how to write Tempest, but also a desire to do so which is infuriating.
  • Here's a thing for me to publish so I don't burn out working on Equestrian Horizon.

Reviewer's Café response · 8:14pm Jan 2nd, 2019

So the reviewer’s café reviews for The Nightmare Night Knightmare finally came out a little over a week ago. To my surprise, they did not entirely eviscerate it. I thought I would make a response to them. I really wanted to get this done last year, but things got in

Blog #3: Finally!... For realsies. · 3:36am Apr 26th, 2019

Yep! Gird your Pip-Buck and crack open a Sparkle~Cola. I just finished typing chapter 3 of Fallout Equestria: Dark Origins. Now before I could upload it, my editor Bah Black Sheep wanted to make sure everything is in the up and up.
So, thanks for being so patient with me. I'll upload it as soon as it's presentable. :eeyup:

I plan a story, and detail my creative process. · 4:24pm Jul 24th, 2017

Boom, I'm back.

Just got an idea: I got this big ol' map of Equestria, complete with a shit load of races, some new and some canon, and where they go. I need to do something with that. I have no idea what, but something.

Maybe like a Wanderings of a Non-Brony, or Ballad of Echo the Diamond Dog style 'imma just go and see what happens' style story.
