Okay, I admit it, I'm probably not your mom. But odds are I'm old enough to be. Now with Patreon account (under alarajrogers) and short stories on Amazon (under Alara Rogers).

Very minor change to Not the Hero · 12:18am February 26th

In "Blueblood, This Is Your Life!" I changed language about Cadance being related to Sombra to being related to Amore, since later on I decided to accept the Umbrum backstory for Sombra.

This is minor enough I wouldn't even bother to bring it up, except that someone, who I think might have been DannyJ, called my attention to the inconsistency when the chapter about Sombra and the Element of Hatred came out. So, fixed!

Gonna do a re-read of Not the Hero · 2:34am February 21st

Damn thing is long enough that I may actually be out of the 52 Project and able to work on it by the time I finish. :-)

It's my first priority once I can write fanfic again. At this point, I've taken enough hiatus weeks that the project's completion has pushed out to the first week of May rather than right before April.

Back on track with 52 Project... mostly · 12:55am January 16th

I fell way behind in the last part of 2020. Missed my deadline on Nov. 27, so story 35 came out week 36. Story 36 came out week 37. Story 37 didn't come out until shortly after Christmas, and then I declared an official hiatus where I wasn't going to come back until Jan. 15.

38 came out today. We should be in week 42, I've officially lost 4 weeks.

An interesting dream · 4:38pm Dec 22nd, 2020

I spent most of last night's dream plotting an MLP fic and then figuring out how to file all the serial numbers off and make it original fic. Since I was asleep, it didn't end up being quite as "original" as I might have made it when awake, but it still gave me a lot of ideas.

Halfway through 52 Project! · 6:12pm Sep 26th, 2020

I posted story number 26 yesterday to my writing blog (alarawriting.tumblr.com), so I am halfway through this thing!

52 Project is still going · 1:35pm Aug 15th, 2020

And going, and going... I'm up to story 20 now.

Since my last update, I've done:

  • "Norris and the Plague Doctors", a novella about a kid in a zombie apocalypse which is thematically more hopeful than most zombie stories (and also has people dressed as plague doctors who are trying to find a cure)
  • "Therapy", about a vampire whose vampire-father (White Wolf calls this "Sire") is a narcissistic bag of dicks

Wrote, like, three words in June · 9:42pm Jul 3rd, 2020

I'm exaggerating. It was actually 18K, which sounds respectable until you realize it was a third of the recent chapter of No Escape From Yourself, and one other story, and that's it. Work has been brutal this month.

I expect things to be more relaxed in July, so I hopefully will get more written.

I frankly cannot believe this. · 2:22am May 23rd, 2020

Given the overlap between fans of She-Ra and fans of My Little Pony, how is it there are no stories yet where Swift Wind comes to Equestria and ponies try to get him and Celestia to date? That would be hilarious.

More 52 Project stories, but sadly no fanfic · 9:52pm May 22nd, 2020

I've been struggling so hard to write anything. Output this month is abysmal. I've had to put all the writing energy into the 52 Project stories, so I haven't gotten any farther on my fanfics than I did when I last posted.

But I've stayed on track with the project! A new story every week since April 3, released every Friday, at 5 pm (last week I was late and it was like 5:30 or so). I have 8 of them now!

Stories so far include:

I am not dead · 10:56pm Apr 17th, 2020

I feel like, in this day and age, this is something I should be telling y'all fairly regularly.

Anyway, I have been writing frantically for my 52 Project and haven't had a chance to swing around to any fanfic yet. But I believe I am going to do the next chapter of No Escape From Yourself, very soon.

If anyone wants to read them, they're at my writing Tumblr. So far I've posted:

1. The Chicken Story: magical realism, comedy
