A question of locations · 5:48pm Aug 27th, 2017

I'm working on a human AU fic, and I became curious. Some places in pony world (saddle arabia, for example,) are clearly analogous to countries in our world. There are also fanon stand-ins for real world countries, like neighpon for japan. So, in writing a human au, the question becomes, "do I stick with pony terms because it's a pony fan work, or do I use real world locations because the characters are human?"

On the subject of Prominence · 2:01am Aug 13th, 2017

So I put up a blog post about an upcoming story (then took it down shortly after cuz it's probably too early to be talking about that story) and in that post, I mentioned that I know what I want to do with Prominence, but each time I sit down at my computer to work on it, nothing comes out. I don't feel joy or motivation, I just feel pressure and a desire to move on to something more fun for me to work on.

Just a thought · 3:22pm Feb 15th, 2017

So, I've seen a ton of people give Rarity the last name Belle, on account of Sweetie Belle. Which makes perfect sense to me. It's the only last name the family has, aside from the mother's "Crumbles."

but I have yet to see anybody apply the same thing to Fluttershy. If we accept Belle as Rarity's last name, shouldn't Breeze be Fluttershy's on account of Zephyr? I haven't seen anybody do that yet. I might do it if it comes up.

Eh, you know. Just a thought.

Considering collaboration · 1:48pm Feb 1st, 2017

I'm thinking about finding an editor. or a pre-reader. or maybe someone to co-write with on a project or two. I haven't made any firm decisions, I just feel like I should try this out, because I've really never done anything with another person before. I know not many people read my blog posts, few and far between though they are, but if any of you people who follow me might be interested, go ahead and leave a comment.

New Prominence chapter underway · 2:18pm Sep 28th, 2016

I knew it! I knew that new story would get my juices running, and I finally figured out how I want to handle the next chapter of prominence! You all doubted me! YOU ALL CALLED ME MAD! WELL WHO'S MAD NOW?! probably the guy yelling at imaginary detractors on the internet.

Announcing a new story! · 5:20pm Sep 19th, 2016

Good news, everyone! I am hard at work on an all new story! Now, I am sure a lot of you are pissed (and I don't blame you) because it's not Prominence, but this story idea revitalized me, and I'm writing again. As far as I'm concerned, that is the best thing that could happen for Prominence.

Just watched Scare Master. (most minorest of minor spoilers.) · 3:13pm Nov 1st, 2015

So, this episode shows us that ponies have anime, or perhaps just manga. and not only is that the case, but, how this is presented seems to show that Fluttershy likes sailor moon, evangelion, revolutionary girl utena, dragonball, and ranma.

I don't know why, but the implication that fluttershy is an anime fan makes me feel weirdly giddy.

And it can't just be a one off gag, as somepony else was sailor moon earlier in the episode as her nightmare night costume.

Still working on Chapter 9. · 5:34pm Apr 24th, 2015

I saw someone had added Prominence to a bookshelf they'd titled "I wish these would update :(" and I've decided I should address the issue. first and foremost: I'm working on it. but where I used to be able to crank out half a page every morning before work, now I'm struggling to get a sentence or two out. some days I can't come up with anything. I'm stuck in a bit of a creative rut, but I assure you, I'm opening the document and trying to progress every morning.

Computer issues and Prominence delay · 11:46pm Feb 15th, 2015

Soooo, my hard drive may be kaput. I'm talking to you from a back up computer. I can write from this one, as I have before, but whether I get my hard drive back in one piece or not after I send it in for fixin' (it's still under warranty until november), I'm going to be starting the whole next chapter of Prominence over from the beginning. Not that there was much that I had set in place at this point anyway, maybe a page and a half, been having some trouble figuring out what to do next, but

DELAY OF PROMINENCE CHAPTER 7! · 2:10pm Nov 5th, 2014

When I went to alt tab to my word processor this morning, I found that libreoffice wasn't open at all. when I opened it up, it did not, as it usually does, restore what windows had been open when it was shut off.

and I, like an idiot, had not saved it once.
