Author's Notes on Vinyl Scratch's Uninvited Guest · 4:19pm Oct 12th, 2015

First off, thank you for reading my story. This is the third fiction I've made public on FimFic, though it's the fourth one I've completed and the seventh I've started to any significant degree.

I've decided to do things a bit differently here. Instead of doing long Author's Notes at the end of each chapter or explaining things in the comments, I'm going to just link people to this blog post. Hopefully it's preferable to me clogging the comments section with my own comments.

In fiction, there exists a finite number of concepts and archetypes from which to draw, and given the world's huge population coupled with such a long span of time, there

I'm writing a blog post. I've never done this here before, but I suppose now's as good a time as any.

So, where do I start?

Well, I can say that, a month on, I'm still surprised and thrilled that my Sunset Shimmer one-shot was so well received by those who read it. Obviously I hope more people read it, but isn't that always the case? I should just be thankful for what I've got. And I really am. It makes my day when I see that little bell informing me that someone else enjoyed my story.
