    "Marble's Horizon" Reviewed by Titanium Dragon! · 9:33pm Mar 24th, 2016

    Just a quick post that my Scribblefest story Marble's Horizon was recently reviewed by Titanium Dragon, a well known writer and reviewer here on the site. He previously reviewed The Reality I Choose as well. He apparently found Marble's Horizon a bit more to his liking, though, so that was nice. :twilightsmile:

    New Story is out with Awesome Coverart! · 1:39am Mar 5th, 2016

    Well, today I've just submitted my newest story, Weatherpony, which is incidentally a contest entry for the Everfree Northwest Scribblefest this year. It's about a weatherpony who has to save the city of Cloudsdale from rogue weather, but there's something very important that makes this particular weatherpony, named Windy, special. See the incredibly artwork by Xadrow (a good IRL friend of mine) to guess what it is:

    Anyone up for a really quick turnaround pre-reading? · 5:07am Mar 5th, 2016

    More or less what the thread title says, I'm in need of some very fast proofreading / pre-reading of a story that's approximately 6k words long. I'm looking for a maximum 24 hour turnaround (as of the moment this blog is posted), since this is a Scribblefest entry and therefore absolutely has to be up by March 6th.

    I'm fully aware that this is kind of an unreasonable request, so I don't expect anything (and I think I'll still have a fine enough entry if no one responds, so don't worry too much about it), but just in case anyone is bored and feels like helping, I thought I'd toss it out there.

    The Hat Man Reviews: Scribblefest 2017! Starlight & Diamond Tiara stories · 1:41am March 15th

    Today I'll be reviewing two Scribblefest entries with very similar premises: Starlight Glimmer mentoring Diamond Tiara!

    So, how similar or different can two such stories be? Let's examine them both, shall we?

    Just in by the deadline... · 7:27am March 6th

    Haven't got too much done, but I managed to get out my entry for Scribblefest 2017.

    For light, meaningless, and somewhat bizarre humor, and a bit of unjust razzing on nature documentarians...

    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!

    I've done my best to find some different tags this time around for round 3. This time, I have a rather wider variety of stories that I read. I've got a dark tag, a comedy tag, a romance tag, a random tag, a horror tag, even, and of course, another slice of life tag. With a bit of luck, this batch should be a lot more varied, and might interest a few more of you. Let's begin!

    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.

    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.

    What's Coming Up · 3:38am February 13th

    Not much to say aside from expect some stuff to come out in the next few weeks. I'm currently doing a 250-500 words per day goal, and it's been helping a lot. I'm also going to be participating in Scribblefest, which is Everfree Northwest's annual writing competition thing, so expect that along with chapter 2 of Lunaris

    Here's a release window for the stories.

    Lunaris (Chapter 2): Should be released by the end of the week. End of February at the latest.

    Scribblefest story: Should get this done by March 6.

    Not much to say but stay tuned, and thanks again for supporing my work and crap. ^.^

    EFNW Pamphlets? · 5:22am May 24th

    I seem to recall hearing that the Scribblefest winners would get published in the EFNW con literature. Since I didn't go, on account of being trapped in an isolated bunker seven miles underneath the Earth's crust, I have no way of ever seeing it with my own eyes.

    So... did anyone who attended happen to obsessively photograph official convention literature? I've never had anything published before (y'know, on actual paper), and while this isn't quite the same thing, I'm nevertheless curious to see what my work looks like in print.

    The Next-Next Best Thing · 7:04pm April 20th

    ...is winnin' shit.

    Diamond Tiara is Sad on the First Day of School won the Pronkie Pay award for Most Smile-a-riffic in the Neverflee Southeast 2017 Scrubblefist writing competition! Which was the very thing I wrote it for, in fact!

    Good for me. Good job, Posh.

    Oh, a bunch of other people also won awards, too. They seem nice, and their stories are probably nice too. I haven't read them yet. But you can! You can find them all here!

    New Story Incoming · 10:11pm Mar 2nd, 2016

    Surprise, everyone!

    I've been quiet this month because I was working on a new story: an entry for Scribblefest 2016. If you liked my early horror one-shots, then this one is definitely for you.

    This will also be my first submission in the era of auto-approval, so it should appear within the hour. (EDIT: Wow, that was fast.) Now we'll see if I'm as good at dotting T's and crossing I's as I think I am (Leviathan was originally rejected because I forgot to switch the rating to "Teen"). We'll also see if the contest judges find its scariness in violation of their PG guideline. The reason I enter so few contests, is that GaryOak takes one look at my story concepts and rightly says, "That's too dark." This time, I think I've just avoided crossing over the line.

    In any case, I hope you like it!

    Cheers,
    HV

    "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:

    The Inadequacy · 2:22am Mar 7th, 2016

    Princess Cadance is nearly ready to deliver Princess Flurry Heart into the world, and Shining should be the happiest stallion in the world. After all, he's about to become a father—what stallion wouldn't rejoice at this fact?

    And yet... something's eating away at him. Keeping him up nights. Driving him to speak with anypony that'll listen. An anxiety. A fear. A doubt.

    An inadequacy.

    Here you go, guys. I feel really good about this one. It's something I've been wanting to write for a while, the right time just never came up.

    And now, here it is.

    Enjoy.

    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!

    Scribblefest is Everfree Northwest's annual online writing contest. This year, we had some fantastic stories, and our panel of judges had a hard time narrowing the field to our finalists. That said, we're proud to present the final awards below. All of our winners will receive a $20 Amazon gift card.


    The Jaw-Dropper Award
    a.k.a "The Dash"
    We all know the type, the stories that make us go "Holy cow, that just happened!" This would go to the story with the best twist, surprise, or simple moment of hoof-pumping awesomeness!

    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.
