Tumbleweed


A guy. A guy who writes stories. Stories about ponies. (And sometimes robots).

Guys. It's been a night.

BUT.

I have found A THING.

Interim. · 1:51am March 21st

It occurs to me I haven't posted in over a month. Oops.

Which is funny, as I poke around this website on a semi-regular basis, mostly 'cause I get a little dopamine flush when I see someone say something nice about one of my stupid stories. (Sidenote: go leave some comments on my stupid stories).

Obligatory Reminder that I still exist. · 2:44am January 21st

Because I do!

Ain't that something.

So yeah, it's 2022. WHich feels like 2021. Which isn't the best place to be. Though honestly I continue to be stupidly lucky in that things are going well-ish on my end, if a bit ... quiet. As sadly there's not much opportunity to go out and Do Things or Go Places, for any number of reasons. And while having a Real People Job(tm) is nice, it puts me on an actual ... schedule, as opposed to my aimless meanderings back during the summer of 2020.

If it weren't for the last minute ... · 5:50pm Dec 26th, 2021

So!

Here's to hoping everyone had a pleasant holiday! Despite some worst-case-scenario thinking on my part, things came together fairly well. Even got a couple of books as gifts, which is always nice. With any luck, you had an even better holiday than I did!

I am procrastinating. · 1:11am Dec 22nd, 2021

I mean, that's why I'm writing up a blog post, no?

So yeah. The holidays approach with the sure inevitability of a festive-themed glacier. Or something. The good news is, I've gotten just about all the big stuff tended to. Gifts have been acquired and wrapped (for the most part), and plans for the holiday weekend are in place. Even got a booster shot yesterday, which, roughly 24 hours later, has me feeling a bit achey, but it's certainly better than the alternative.

HOW TO WRITE PRINCESS LUNA · 3:15am Nov 30th, 2021

"Oh Tumbleweed!" you cry.

"It's been awhile since you've done one of these dumb posts! But, since you continue to be BEST AT PONIES (and not just because the fandom is barren and fallow in the post S9 era), please, tell us, how do you write Princess Luna? Given she's been one of the most fanfic'd characters since the beginning of the dang show, we probably should have asked you this sooner, but hey. Got any tips?"

WELL LET ME TELL YOU.

A story, updated! · 9:06pm Nov 16th, 2021

WELP.

I didn't even bother signing up for NaNoWriMo this year. These days I find myself returning home from my Real People Job without the brainpower to produce more than a paragraph or two (on a good night!), much less the 1667 words daily to hit the arbitrary 50k mark.

The Ever-Expanding Reach of the Holiday Season Continues! · 12:23am Oct 24th, 2021

So I WAS going to hem and haw and go "oh, should I do Jinglemas this year?" Only to remember that I did it in both 2019 and 2020 so I might as well make a habit of it. Huh. Nevermind the fact that my holiday stories tend to get less attention than my regular stories (which is saying something), and nevermind the fact this takes theoretical writing time away from the latest Flash Sentry misadventure and/or the non-pony stuff I've been chipping away at for awhile yet, and nevermind the fact that

Tumbleweed vs. NEW PONY · 12:03am Sep 25th, 2021

Oh hey, we have new pony now?

So I watched it.

Or, well ... the first two thirds of it? I have a terrible attention span these days. Though really, I kind of checked out after the bit in the unicorn teahouse, as I was able to call the plot twist about the third crystal or whatever.

And y'know what? That's fine. As again, I'm absolutely not the target audience here-- and if you're reading this, you probably aren't, either.
