Turned in my last paper today so now I can get back to work! But it also gives me an excuse to put this up.

I love this person's take on Canterlot! That's how I would envision one of the quarters. :heart:

End of Act 2 · 7:27am Dec 7th, 2012

Technically EoA2 came with 'First Victory'. Not that I actually explicitly break down and plan the story around this, but I think i can find the crude parts if you looked at it in film theory. It also falls in with the 'middle' being most of the work. But then, this is a novel, not a film. And apparently has eclipsed 400 pages, which puts it 12 pages shy of the longest thing I've ever written. And it's probably already the best. I'm not sure how to feel about that. . .

Since I have watchers · 4:50pm Nov 30th, 2012

Mind telling me what you're interested in or watching me for? Obvs. my writing, but I think this begs a sort of question since I'm getting close to done with my massive fic. I'm thinking about what to write next. And it probably won't be big, big stuff for a damned long time.

For example, will my viewers turn on me if I write a bunch of shipping fic or something. :D

Momentum · 2:19pm Nov 27th, 2012

Okay so maybe instead of a one-shot sabbatical I've been burying myself in drafting my semester project, which is a short story, which has so little to do with MLP or anything in this side of the world so it's of little consequence. That being said, the next few chapters of DoD have been drafted. What we conceive of as 'Act 2' of the story will conclude this week in a small flurry of updates. After that, I'm going to have to finish my term papers and junk. Which could leave me

The Other Blog · 4:17pm Nov 22nd, 2012

Phew, that was kind of obnoxious. Thanks for all your kind words. I'd be working, but, I'm going to be cooking for a lot of today. *g*

Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it and if not just happy stuff.

The Blog with Existential Author Whining · 9:37am Nov 21st, 2012

This is that blog. I'll open up by thanking everyone for helping me out and giving me advice on all my random questions I'm asking when I should be writing for you. ha-ha.

Writing is always so... double-edged to me. I rarely feel as whole and idealized as I do when I complete something. A story, a chapter. On the other hand, I always fall back on the feeling that I'm a failure.

Anyone know anything about the various pony cons? · 12:07pm Nov 13th, 2012

Forgive me for throwing this blog out to the pones, but I need some help! I might be able to go to a pony con next year if I try really, really hard. I'm looking for opinions on people who have been to any of them. Right now I'm defaulting to looking at Everfree Northwest because it's the closest thing to where I live and probably will cause the least travel cost/stress. On the other hoof, if there's a huge difference in experience, I might be convinced to go somewhere else...

Wrestling with Canon (S3 spoilers I guess) · 12:18pm Nov 12th, 2012

Well this has been a weekend of things that ALMOST went right. I've got some drafts sitting around but I'm grinding over some details in the show right now and I'm just trying to get it all in my head before making final revisions and submitting.

This is kind of spoilers for episode S3E1.









-A thousand years before the pilot episode, Celestia banished Nightmare Moon.

What I should be doing · 2:37pm Oct 23rd, 2012

I wonder if I'm going to regret consistently putting off my reading list for my spring exam... so I can work on this honking fic.

I'm making a dent in the shelf, though. If I'm slow, this is why! Buck most people are clever with these posts... so um...

Hiatus Over · 2:40pm Sep 28th, 2012

For now, anyway. I've cleared through the things that needed to be done. My workload will ebb and flow as the year goes by.
