Black Lives Matter. Good things are good, actually. I write about wizards and wizards' apprentices. 90% of prophecy is just pattern recognition.

Midnight editing thoughts · 10:08pm July 28th

Do you ever look at a key part of a scene, something important that has to pack a punch, and think "this is too short"? And then you look at it really closely, and you look at the scene around it, and think "Actually, this bit is exactly right, it's everything else that's too long"?

Does that happen to everyone or is that just me?

Anyone play Vampire Survivors? It's great, you guys.

I've been quiet here for a bit, so I guess it's time for an update.

Nice one, Celestia.

I realize now I should have moved just a couple meters up to get clear of the street light. Oh well, too late now.

Notes on a pun · 9:33pm April 1st

So as part of the Seven Trials chapter 3 edits last month I was doing some worldbuilding. I was looking around the mlp wiki for canonical Old World locations that could fit into my plans when I remembered that there is a pony New Orleans, "New Horseleans", mentioned in the comics. And from there things quickly got screwy.

And A Happy New Year · 1:09pm Dec 29th, 2021

I hope everyone's had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all victory over your enemies in the year to come.

As for me, I've been quiet for a while here but still hard at work here behind the scenes. As of just two nights ago I reached the end of the final chapter and epilogue of The Seven Trials of Clover the Clever, and finished the first draft, with a few days left to go before the year ends.

I just wanna share this quote · 9:37pm Nov 29th, 2021

All our learned teachers and educators are agreed that children do not know why they want what they want; but no one is willing to believe that adults too, like children, wander about this earth in a daze and, like children, do not know where they come from or where they are going, act as rarely as they do according to genuine motives, and are as thoroughly governed as they are by biscuits and cake and the rod. And yet it seems palpably clear to me.
