The glacier moved... · 3:44am December 9th

... tonight I wrote over 2800 words on a long-dormant project.

Yes, there is movement on The Melancholy of Pinkie Pie.

We'll see if more is forthcoming.

If you want to see what I wrote... well, that's what the Patreon is for!

Trope Fodder... · 5:41am November 30th

As mentioned in the last blog, there's now a TVTropes page for Changeling Space Program and The Maretian (with My Flight thrown in).

Now, my favorite thing about TV Tropes are the "sugar Wiki" categories: Crowning Moment of Awesome, Crowning Moment of Funny, Heartwarming, Tearjerker, and Nightmare Fuel.

So, while I'm at Anime Dallas trying to pay my December bills and maybe get money for a transmission repair...

Progress on CSP... · 2:22am November 29th

I've had five live-writing sessions since starting that, all on CSP.

In those five sessions, I've written 12,542 first-draft words.

Two sequences to go, and the chapter will be done, and I can begin editing.

Just thought you'd like to know... and if you'd like to see the first draft material, you ought to join my Patreon...

hint, hint.

The (Mostly) Daily Writing Resumes · 10:52pm November 23rd

Beginning at 7 PM tonight (Central).

If you want to watch the words come out live as I type them into Google Docs, or if you want the pre-publication spoilers after the live-writing is done, you have to be a Patreon supporter.

Tonight I'll be working on Changeling Space Program. Where I go from there will be influenced by comments from patrons, but CSP is going to be my strongest focus, for now.

AAAAAAARGH. · 1:58am November 20th

I've enjoyed my vacation from writing after completing The Maretian. Over the past week my creative side has begun to kick back in, with scenes and plotlines for this and that project suggesting themselves. I was looking forward to beginning posts to my Patreon a week from today and getting back into writing, without the pressure of absolutely, positively, daily updates.

Little, pointless things that amuse... · 7:42pm November 14th

As I type this, the up-votes on The Maretian are exactly 1,600.

The down-votes are exactly 40.

This is such a James May moment.

Maretian Announcement, and Props · 9:55pm November 9th

I've decided to go ahead and add that tech appendix, plus a brief introduction, for The Maretian. This is more due to an ulterior motive (more on that in the author note for the appendix) than demand, but I think it does need doing.

But before I do that, I want to mention what really inspired me to attempt a daily update story.

What inspired me is Admiral Biscuit's SIlver Glow's Journal.

Milestone · 2:09am November 6th

I'm enjoying the absence of the stress of coming up with something, anything, for daily posts. (Don't worry, life keeps providing other stress to make good the difference.) And I'm beginning to toy with new and different writing, some non-pony and some pony (including two story ideas: Doctor Whooves and the Five Derpies and Nightmare Moon: Diary of a Magic Tyrant). And I'm still considering whether there have been enough "why can't Equestria send rocket fuel / soup / Discord
