Mapmaking: Merrie & Damme · 12:46am Last Friday

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 October 3rd

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 September 18th

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 August 22nd

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 August 10th

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 August 7th

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.

Weird Inspirations · 4:45am July 30th

So... I dusted off my Evernote login and started poking around.

A long time ago, in a chat program far far away (Skype), I was describing a play-through of Game Dev Tycoon using pony-themed names.

One of the games I made in that platform was "Pantymare". Much fun was had making jokes about it. Someone even dared me to write a story about it.

Five years later...

Discord Server! · 2:20pm July 10th

I've been rolling this idea around in my head for a while. I know there's a ton of writing servers out there, and a ton of places that other people can go for writing help and whatnot, but I thought "Hey, I'm a writer. I've written things. But there's not a lot of places where I feel like I can share my love for general writing and my love of ponies in the same place."

Slowing Down · 3:23am June 11th

It has been brought to my attention that posting, daily, 5-8k chapters is not exactly normal and not exactly something that people can keep up with daily for reading.

Also, it's putting a lot of stress on me to finish editing things that I put off earlier. I have a ways to go and a few big chapters to clean up before I get to chapters that I've already had through two and three passes of editing.

Bottom line there is that I don't want to burn out.

First story in 2 years! · 5:19pm June 6th

Okay, so... I've been doing a lot of rebuilding my confidence in my writing for the past couple of months. Sharing out more of my words just between friends and trying to get back that verve that I used to have for writing.
