Seems I've grown as a writer since September 2012, but perhaps not enough. · 5:44pm Jan 27th, 2016

I've not had much time to write or get into "the zone" lately, so instead of jotting down ideas I tend to tinker with story outlines I've already started over the years. Just now I decided to look back at the very first original story I was going to write for the Friendship is Magic universe, and while the adventure may be a fun one to write or read, the characters are... well... Turns out that in my efforts to make a diverse and interesting cast, I just made the Mane Six into eight ponies

I am bereft D: · 11:54am April 9th

Every Monday morning for the past... at least four years, I would wake up, turn my computer on, and log on to Freegal Music, a website run through my library where you could download three songs a week, no DRM, completely free and legal. (Y'know, freegal.)

This morning, the website changed.

Now, change is not an inherently bad thing. I have to tell myself this every single time something changes around me. It happens a lot, and my usual reaction is panic.

I think I'm a writer now. · 2:00am Oct 2nd, 2016

I think I must officially be a writer now. I've got a Google Docs folder full of unfinished stories and no ideas how to get them finished.

This is how it's supposed to work, right?

Not to moan, but... · 1:12am June 28th

Like, I get that people might dislike my work, I write in a sometimes boring way with a possibly odd attention to details. But... why is it that I get dislikes, but nobody comments why they disliked it?

For example, my last one, Candy Cotton's Normal Day, it got a few dislikes, but only one person commented their issue (the wordcount, which I get that you don't want to read a short story, but... I'll get into that in a different post')

Daily Wordcount Project · 1:14pm Feb 19th, 2016

As a few of you might have gathered from my relative dearth of stories and my numerous 'I Am So Behind and A Human Failure' blogposts, I've had an on-and-off problem with productivity since forever. This week has been particularly bad, because a game got its hooks into me and didn't let go until I'd put in a decent 30 hours in 3 days. Instead of using my multiple days off this week in anything resembling a productive manner, or even doing things that can help me be productive like

Price · 12:30am July 1st

So um, dumb question. Is the price of hosting Fimfiction going up? Are the ads already on the pages not supporting the upkeep? Or is it just a random money grab to put the "remove adverts and more, Patreon" everywhere? It seems rather sad and a touch greedy to me, watching the site go from reasonable ads to scrolling ads and so on to now. Where it does its best to scream "gib moar money". Which if I was able to I'd be glad to. Even if the new patreon is obnoxious. But as is I'm poor and I

I can't find a editor! Yeah I have Alicorn priest and the other guy (no offense man.) But they are only for mlp story's! The rest of them I'm on my ow with. I try finding beta readers but none respond. Damn it why are all the decent editors easier to find for one genre:raritydespair:?!

35 and going... strong is pushing it... · 2:40am Mar 11th, 2016

I'm 35 today and my stomach decided to celebrate by getting me a virus that makes it impossible to keep anything down. :pinkiesick:

I just wish this thing would hurry up and evolve total organ failure so I can be done with it. :raritydespair:

I can no longer distinguish between different types of bad advice: ADD edition · 6:37pm Mar 30th, 2016

So, in my ongoing quest to bang my head up against my attention deficit disorder, I’ve done a whole bunch of different stuff to “improve my concentration,” and y’know what I realise about pretty much all of these tips? They’re like money-saving tips when you’re on minimum wage.

Complaints, and an Update · 8:55pm Feb 15th, 2017

Throughout my time on FiMFiction, I've noticed something that I feel is a bit of a problem: users who have public libraries specifically for stories that either take forever to be updated, or have been on hiatus for a long time, and are usually called "Dead Stories," or something similar to that.

Seriously, a word of advice for you all. Never get two illnesses that conflict- i.e. either you're on treatment that surpresses one but makes your other illness (a mental illness) worse or you have to put up with stupid pain.

Sometimes I don't even know how I manage to adult.

SCENE: The psychiatrist's office, just around the corner from where Hot Fuzz was filmed

CHUCK: So...

UNDERPAID AND OVER-WORKED HEAD SHRINKER: You have Attention Deficit Disorder.

CHUCK: Yes. Meds plz?

UAOWHS: Not so fast! First, I will need your school reports from ten years ago, plus the mobile phone numbers of at least two people who knew you as a child.

CHUCK: Ok why?

UAOWHS: NHS prescriptions regulations only allow me to hand out ADD meds to children.

EQLA: the not-so-great part (and pictures!) · 7:32am Sep 11th, 2015

My previous post mentioned some of the epic parts of EQLA. And there really were some. Bonnie Zacherle and Lauren Faust will never meet again for the very first time. That's a historic moment in the fandom, right there. However, since my colleague Mr. Melnipony has mentioned it, and since I was going to

Why I Hated "A Royal Problem," and What I Wish It Had Done · 8:54pm Jul 8th, 2017

This week, Chris had a blog post detailing his problems with S7E10: Princess Freaky Friday“A Royal Problem.” It’s a good one, and I think very worth checking out. My response, like his, was that I hated the episode more than any other possibly going back as far as Season 3. (S4 for him, actually; I disliked some stuff in S3 more

Turnabout Isn't Always Fair Play · 8:08pm Oct 9th, 2016

For a while there I pretty much stopped reading stories on the site. I don't know why exactly but I narrowed it down to general lack of interest and that a lot of new stories were not my cup of tea. That doesn't mean I haven't expanded my horizons though; I've started reading ship fics which I used to give a pass on. Some of them are amazing tales that I love whole heartedly, and some not so much but that's how things are.

Where Did 10 Years Go? · 5:58am Mar 25th, 2017

Next month will officially mark my 10th year, ten years trying to make some kind of a dent with my writing.

In those last months of my last high school semester, I began writing down a list of stories I wanted to write, characters I wanted to be in them, one of whom ending up my vampire bat, Jimmy Lee Darrell.

A bit depressed about my computer issues... (Warning, venting ahead!) · 10:07pm Sep 15th, 2016

Well, as anyone who's been following for the past few months knows that at least two months by my count a cat knocked part of my family's computer (The tower specifically) of it's table rending the computer useless until someone takes a look at it.
