A quick Slamjam postmortem note · 11:56pm Sep 7th, 2015

So, the creator of one of the OCs I wrote about just about flipped his lid at me because I gave his character a gay shipping story, ruining his message of platonic bromance and emotionally vulnerable heterosexual dudes.

Part 1: Poetry · 1:36am Sep 3rd, 2015

“But I hate poetry” well that’s because you’re doing it wrong. A poem of the type that we were told to write in this class is just a short, condensed piece of work that shows who you are and what you do as a writer.

What is a poem? Poems are generally short and dense. They near universally have some kind of rhyrhm. They make creative use of line breaks. They usually, not always, convey some kind of deeper meaning--writing in between the lines, as it were.

Lesson 0: Learn the rules before you break them · 2:27am Aug 22nd, 2015

I know full well that I'm talking down to a lot of people in this post--my excuse is that writing it out is also a way for me to refresh the lessons in my own mind. Story tags are because I plan to go back and "grade myself" based on my own advice as i write these.

All is right in ponydom · 10:34am Aug 15th, 2015

I know, I said I would do a thing, and then I didn't.

I will. I promise. Next post.

But first, I need to share this with you: a friend has informed me that One Terrible Writer has posted all of his stories, previously thought to be lost forever, on fanfiction.net.

Knighty HATES him! Honolulu-area baker reveals how to improve your writing with 3 simple rules! · 3:01am Aug 6th, 2015

I’ve seen it a few times, and you probably have too: people will say stuff along the lines of “I bet this person took a community college course in creative writing and now they think they're so great.” It’s a very resonant insult for classists like me. Besides, it’s rooted in fact: the level of literacy needed to pass community college courses in this town is miserably low.

In the moment before her execution, she realized what it meant to be a princess, to be alive, to be Twilight. · 11:14pm Aug 3rd, 2015

A while ago, I wrote a quick bit (which I won't link, because it's bad) about Twilight Sparkle's planeswalker spark igniting when a season finale/opener goes wrong and she is defeated by a villain. Bonus points because she's already said to have a "spark."

... I've been writing, and I didn't even realize it · 10:07pm Jul 22nd, 2015

I have been writing for one of those funtime anonymous contests. Normally I would be outright ashamed to admit that I was doing that kind of thing instead of working on my own ideas, but this particular contest has been ongoing since May and has gotten me to write well over 10,000 words, which is probably 10,000 more than I would have written otherwise.

When a fandom creates ass-puckeringly horrendous porn, it's hilarious.

When a fandom starts to act like insecure sperglords about the "image" of "The Fandom(tm)," then they richly deserve to be the punching bags of the internet.
