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).

Wrote, like, three words in June · 9:42pm Last Friday

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

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

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 April 17th

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

52 Project is live! · 9:26pm April 3rd

Not related to MLP, but to my recent blog post about the 52 Project, a thing I am undertaking where I have to post a short story every week for a year.

First story, "The Chicken Story", is up!

Now I just have to post 51 more of them. :-)

God help me, I'm gonna do this thing · 3:11am March 30th

So, I’ve been planning this for more than 10 years. But because I’m obsessed with numbers, I felt like I needed a round number (round in this case, being even, multiple of 5, or 17). And finally, 2020 showed up and I’m like “there will never be a better number in my lifetime”, but I wasn’t going to be ready by Jan 1st. So decided I’d launch in March. But I was sick most of February. So I decided May. And then like three days ago I realized… no. Everyone is stuck at home looking for things to

The Naming of Worlds · 4:54am March 17th

I think Discord named these, or some of them anyway.

Terra Fabula -- The Earth of Equestria (which they call Earth when they refer to the planet, and in fact most planets are called Earth.)

Terra Mundi -- A mundane, magicless world. Our world, the human world of Not the Hero, the human world of Ice, and the human world of the thing I am working on right now that I should not be working on because I have too many incompletes already but here we go.

I am really not fond of this · 6:29am March 9th

Damn, I thought we were over this.

I am really not at all fond of characters being assassinated and made significantly more awful than canon has ever implied them to be, for the purpose of giving them a horrible death at the hands/hooves of the heroes that we're all supposed to clap for because the character was so horrible in the story.

Also the misuse of "chaos" to mean "evil". Come on, aren't we done with this yet?

The goose is almost loose again · 10:32pm March 8th

Finishing up the second chapter of "The Goose Is On The Loose", in which the goose torments the Apple family. I should have it out today or tomorrow.

I've been waiting for this since 2013 · 8:27am February 2nd

Almost since I first got into the fandom, in fact.

When I first came up with the plot for Stumble in My Footsteps, there was a particular climactic scene that basically ends the part of the story where I know what happens, and past that we are in totally uncharted territory.

I wrote that scene tonight.

The chapter will be posted tomorrow because it's too late for editing tonight, but I wanted to share the achievement with y'all.
