A writer should be like fine wine: get better with age.

Writing questions about me · 9:56am Dec 21st, 2020

Thought I’d jump on this supposedly recent bandwagon, cuz why not.

1. Tell us about your current project(s) – what’s it about, how’s progress, what do you love most about it?

Pretty much all of my attention is centered towards my current fic:

TApropos of the Sinners
(Featured on EqD) A dark and tragic event occurred some years ago in Ponyville, and it involved an equally dark and dysfunctional family. They are still discussed among us to this day.

Character Trivia – Cluster Tale · 3:54pm Dec 1st, 2020

Thought I'd write up some interesting facts for some of my favourite OCs (that I've written) which probably don't/won't appear in the stories they're in. While I'm mostly doing this for myself, I'll put it in blog format in case anyone wants to read it.

Also, keep in mind that some of this stuff will contain minor spoilers.

Ideas for new fics · 3:44pm Nov 26th, 2020

Here's some ideas for potential fics I may or may not be writing in the foreseeable future, that is, ideas that I've actually thought about and developed somewhat in my head.

Luna fic

I can't decide between a serious character study of the night princess and her regrets of Nightmare Moon, or a satirical fic that mocks all of the Luna sadfics on this site. Or maybe a combination of the two.

Time loop fic

"Don't Look at the Fog" by SpitFlame - Review · 1:19pm Nov 24th, 2020

TDon't Look at the Fog
Twilight wakes up one day to find that things are different. Everypony is gone, and there's a persistent sheet of fog dominating all of Ponyville. But that's the least of her worries. It only escalates from there.

Today I'm gonna be reviewing a horror story, published a few years ago, called Don't Look at the Fog by SpitFlame.

Wait a minute, SpitFlame?! Do I know him?



So... yeah.

I did this thing. Turns out I write like Tolstoy. I have no idea how reliable this site is, but it's still pretty neat.

Here's what I put in to have analyzed:

Apropos of the Sinners – Update 13 · 5:49am Nov 21st, 2020

I started writing this all-OC fic with 8 "parts" in mind, all with a projected 200k words. But now I've realized that parts 1–6 was essentially a bunch of setup—very intricate setup, but setup all the same—to part 7, which will be a whole novel-length story on its own, easily going over 100k words. Heck, part 7 pretty much is the story. Everything before that was merely the appetizer.

Update: Why does God let bad things happen? · 6:59am Oct 6th, 2020

As some of you may (or may not) know, I have a very big interest in theology, particularly Christianity because I'm a westerner. And so sometimes I'll think through theological problems in order to come to some conclusion. Sometimes I do, other times I'm not so lucky. But in both cases it's always helpful to write down your thoughts if you deem them serious enough.

Apropos of the Sinners – Update 12 · 2:34am Sep 14th, 2020

Decided to put AotS on an official hiatus. I won’t be coming back to it till December at the earliest (no promises) and the next arc is unlike anything else I’ve written, meaning it’s something that requires a lot of time and careful attention in order to be executed properly, and those are things I just don’t have right now.

insert "I finally completed so-and-so chapters" statement here

Yes, I finished Part 6. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, little less happy with the final chapter. But maybe I'm just being too harsh on myself. I may have overdid it with the ellipses.
