New Patreon · 2:20am Nov 13th, 2018

People have sometimes asked me "Magnet, do you have a Patreon?" and I would tell them I didn't. But now, if I told them I didn't have a Patreon, I would be a liar. I've set up a page with fairly basic rewards that I know I can achieve, and I'd like to invite everyone to take a look.

Update on my Situation · 9:22pm Nov 2nd, 2018

Let me start by thanking everyone profusely for their support. Not just the donations, which are more than I could have ever expected by an order of magnitude, but by the sheer amount of kindness and understanding I've seen.

Probably the Worst situation I've ever been in · 11:51pm Nov 1st, 2018

So I got a real gut punch today.

I don't like to talk about personal stuff on the internet but sometimes you can't avoid it because you need somewhere to vent or just to beg for help. Asking for help has always been something I struggle with until it's too late, because I always feel like a failure, but I don't know what else to do.

How to Write More Good - Conflict · 5:30am Oct 5th, 2018

Almost everything you write where there’s a conflict between two characters can be thought of as a combination of a fight and a dialogue, and those two things are really different ways of describing the same thing. When two characters cross swords, it’s just a way of talking out their differences with action, and when two characters get into a screaming match or a debate, that’s no different from a boxing match.

And there are good and bad ways to write that.

More Commissions Open · 7:41pm Sep 19th, 2018

Hey guys! It's that time of the month again when I look at the bills and my bank account and try to figure out how to keep a roof over my head. To that end, I'm opening up a few commission slots. As before, for each slot you'll be paying for a minimum word count of 1000 words for every ten dollars you put towards it. Because I know my bad habits, it's likely that I'll end up going over that minimum, potentially by quite a bit. I'm going to start with three open slots. If you're curious

Accepting Emergency Commissions! · 5:47pm Jul 3rd, 2018

Well, as the title suggests I am open for commissions. Any characters, any genre. I found out the hard way that my bank account only had four bucks left in it, so any amount thrown my way is appreciated and you'll even get some words out of it!

My base rate is $10 for *at least* 1000 words. So if you give me $20, that's at least 2000, $30 is at least 3000, etc. I'm not going to promise any exact amount over - it could be 1001, it could be 1200. Think of it as a little bonus.

How to Write More Good - Outlining · 9:33pm May 1st, 2018

So, I wanted to write something useful for other people, and one thing that I thought might be helpful was a fairly detailed explanation of how to actually get started writing a story.

This is, of course, my method, so it might work for you or you might have your own way that works too - I've found that the method I detail here keeps me on track towards actually getting to the end of a story. Or at least a chapter.

Step One: Get an Idea

Current Project List · 6:38pm Mar 26th, 2018

I haven't done one of these nearly ever, so I figure I'll go over my list of current projects and what status they're in.

Twin Twilights
Sunset Shimmer, Princess Celestia's personal student, is involved in a terrible magical accident that ends up with a foal coming out of a magical mirror. The foal seems to be a copy of Twilight Sparkle, and Sunset ends up raising her while trying to stay in Celestia's good graces.

Sneak Preview · 9:17pm Jul 22nd, 2014

Maybe I'll start using this to post story snippets and little things that don't need to be full stories.

Today though I think I will post a preview of what will be coming after Scholar's Mate.
