Sorry for taking so long! Life gets in the way sometimes, and this particular batch of stories was rather heavy.

But it’s over and done with, and ready to give you what you’ve been waiting for. We’ve read through 57 different stories about relationships ending, and now here are the best of them.

Endings is closed. · 5:49am Sep 16th, 2019

The story submission folder has been closed.

If you submitted the story to the site and forgot to add it to the folder, pm me.

If you're one of the new authors who's stories still need manual approval, don't worry, we'll get it taken care of in the morning.

Go read my vanity entry to the contest.
And also everyone else's, I guess.

I have a lot of judging to do.

Less than 24 hours remain · 6:40am Sep 15th, 2019

I'm in a hotel room and up too late. Lots of late entries are pouring in, and I'm sure there's plenty more to come.

As a reminder, the deadline is 11:59 PM CDT on September 15th. As long as your story is submitted before then, it'll be good, even if it doesn't make it through the story approval queue right away. One of the story approvers is on the judging team, Majin Syeekoh, so we've got you covered there.

Best of luck to you all.

It's September. · 4:42pm Sep 2nd, 2019

Two weeks remain for the deadline to the Sunset Shipping Contest. We're at 13 entries so far, and I know a lot of people are still hard at work.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has to offer, and wish you all the best of luck on getting your entry in.

Also, I've been working on a vanity entry to the contest myself, which should be ready shortly for your reading perusal.

This is an excellent article on the things it takes to make a successful relationship work.

For those of you participating in the Sunset contest, or thinking about it, this is also an article about all the different points in which relationships can fall apart.

Bronycon! · 5:49pm Aug 7th, 2019

Bronycon was a hell of a fun time.

I'm not one to catalogue and do a big recap post, so I'll just leave a few highlights.

*Hanging out in The Fuckhouse with Pearple Prose, Aragon, r5h, and Appletank.
*Meeting a bunch of other awesome and cool people who I'm too lazy to name.
*Getting a print copy of Fractured Sunlight signed by Rebecca Shoichet
*Signing several other peoples print copies of Fractured Sunlight when they managed to track me down.

Sunset Shipping Contests: Endings · 5:11am Aug 1st, 2019

Heya folks! Remember that time, two years ago, when I ran a Sunset Shipping Contest that received about 54 entries?

Remember that time last year, when I did another Sunset Shipping Contest that received a whopping 66 entries, and was one of the biggest contests in the sites history? (At the time, anyway.)

Bronycon and vague life updates · 2:39pm Jun 24th, 2019

I'm going to be at Bronycon this year.

Won't be on any panels though.

Don't have a book in the bookstore, because Fractured Sunlight is already available as a hardcover online and I kind of figure anyone who wants it already has it.

Mostly there to hang out with friends, and meet cool new people. So if you happen to catch me there, feel free to say hi.

One day ahead of schedule, I have managed to write over 50,000 words in the month of November.

It's a hell of an achievement, and congratulations to any other authors out there who pulled it off. I found it a lot easier to get through this year than I did last time.

More importantly than just sheer word count, however,

The first draft of Voyagers is finally complete
