I sometimes pretend I have a posting schedule other than "sometime near the end of the week."

New story in the Merriedamme Universe · 2:11am March 25th

Today, the story that Carapace has been writing in tandem with me has been published. We've been brainstorming for two years for both of our stories, and while we've each written our own stories, I think it's safe to say that these stories are a joint project.

Surprise! New story in the Merriedamme Universe · 8:15pm March 4th

Now, this was a bit of a surprise to me. I found out that my editor and long-time friend, Minds Eye had been working on this while I was still writing new material and editing old material.

Nemo, 2004 - 2021 · 9:27pm January 27th

I am heartbroken to say that my beloved friend, Nemo has passed away this morning, peacefully after a three month struggle with cancer.

We didn't know it was cancer until today when they got an ultrasound and x-ray on him. We thought he had an infection, but then he crossed a tipping point after slowly declining over the course of months. I saw it but I was in denial. I counted little things as victories while he continued a slow decline. Today, he couldn't stand up.

Brief panic averted · 5:46am January 7th

Last week, I published the second to last of my buffer for The Primrose War. Oh boy did that ever set a fire under my ass to get moving and finishing the plans I'd had. Three whole new chapters in the last week (Hooray for holidays!) and after that, I return to what I had prewritten for my second draft (before I realized that I had a ton of stuff left out).

Mapmaking: Merrie & Damme · 12:46am Oct 23rd, 2020

So... this was kind of sudden for me, too. I mean, it's not like I don't spend hours every day thinking about The Primrose War or anything, but... why not a new endeavor.

BTW, I love Inkarnate.

This was the result.

Retrospective, Book One of the Primrose War · 7:41pm Oct 3rd, 2020

Wow, it's been a ride. Can you believe it's been four months and a few days since the first publishing of Chapter 1 of The Primrose War.

Book one is done. From their antagonistic beginnings, I've been happy to have my readers along for the ride of watching Rosewater and Collar as they navigate the tricky pathways of politics and intrigue in the cities of Damme and Merrie.

Progress update: Book Titles · 5:32pm Sep 18th, 2020

Good afternoon everyone! If you're in CST or eastwards

So, as some of you may have already noticed, The Primrose War now has "Book 1" in front of each chapter currently, and that will be changing soon with upcoming chapters to "Book 2". In fact, we're only a few chapters away from the transition.

The book titles are:

  1. The Primrose War
  2. The Primrose Gala
  3. The Primrose Rebellion
  4. The Primrose Promise

Research rabbit holes · 5:14am Aug 22nd, 2020

So... I was researching some information on soap making to make sure that my information wasn't completely wrong, and man there is a whole world of amateur soapmakers and soapmaking enthusiasts out there. They're called "soapers" and they make soap out of basically anything that has a hint of fat in it.

Lore talk: Fashion, Utility, and Saddlebags · 9:40pm Aug 10th, 2020

As I was pondering the preponderance of saddlebags in the story, and having come up with the idea some time ago that everypony usually wore some small bag about their person to carry the rudiments of daily life that we would tuck away in pocket or purse(which, if you think about it, is a pocket you can take off at will.)

Meet the Characters (And ask questions) · 1:39pm Aug 7th, 2020

First, an announcement. I'm going to be moving the updates for Primrose War to Saturday. This is mostly for my sake, but it also means the update comes out tomorrow instead of Tuesday. It makes my work week mornings a little less hectic trying to remember everything I need to do.

First, the gallery, if actually having them here doesn't work. I'm not sure if imgur hosting works right.
