It's Chinese New Year and "Kung Pow: Enter the Hoof" Still Hasn't Updated · 5:32pm January 22nd

I know I said I'd try to get it done by today, but my workload increased at the magazine I'm working for. So it's going to be a while before that gets done.

Sorry.

Jinglemas is Coming! · 10:19pm Nov 4th, 2022

Hey everybody. I know I've been pretty inconsistent the last few months, but I wanted to let you in on something I'll definitely be doing. Jinglemas, the Secret Santa story-swap contest, is coming up, and I have enrolled to participate. I've been doing this contest ever since 2018, and it's a lot of fun to do. I'd highly recommend you check out the rules here and sign up if you'd like to give and receive

November Update · 6:38pm Nov 3rd, 2022

Hey all. Obviously I didn't get any of those fics I said I'd do in October done. After the funeral, my time was filled with a lot of wandering around the country with my family and I haven't really had time to jot anything down. I'm not going to promise anything going forward until I'm back home, because I just haven't been able to find a lot of time to write with the constant moving around I'm doing.

Thanks for understanding.

Leaving Home and the WriteOff Group · 12:36am Sep 20th, 2022

Hey, everyone. If you’ve read any of my posts over the last few months, you’ll know my mother recently passed away from cancer. One of her final requests was that she be buried in her hometown, so I am journeying with my father and brother up north to commit her ashes to the earth. I still haven’t finalized the eulogy I want to give at the funeral, which is part of the reason I’m typing all of this. I needed some distance

I Won a Contest I Didn't Even Submit For · 8:53pm Aug 16th, 2022

Back in July, I submitted a minific for Loganberry's Monthly Minific contest. It wasn't a big story, just a simple little tale about Pinkie Pie trolling Mud Briar on a social networking site. It got

New Story Up! · 10:00pm Jul 31st, 2022

Hey guys! After a little time off, I decided to whip up a story about Scootaloo's Auntie Lofty for Bicyclette's Lofty and Holiday Contest. I always liked contests that focused on underutilized characters, so I decided to throw my hat into the ring. It was more so I could break out of my writing funk and put something out there, even if it's not the greatest. I'm still trying to get over everything that happened, and this is a baby step towards that.

My Mother is Gone · 3:36pm May 22nd, 2022

On April 27th, my mother passed away in her sleep. She suffered a massive stroke on the evening of April 25th, the cancer in her stomach cavity causing a blood blockage in the left hemisphere of her brain. She hung on for thirty hours before her body just gave out.

I'm Going to Be Gone for a While · 10:57pm Mar 29th, 2022

Way back in April of last year, I did a post talking about my mother's cancer diagnosis. While I was obviously saddened, I did not really dwell on it often in later posts. It was just one of those things that you gradually learned to live with, like any other health condition. My mother also was a real champ about the process, always keeping a positive outlook even while my father and I were growing more and more

March Updates and Plans · 6:54pm Mar 5th, 2022

Hey all! Time for another monthly update. Didn’t get a lot of the things I put in my last update done (big shock), but I at least have some excuses. I spent a large part of last month applying to numerous jobs and, of course, got no response back. On the upside, I’ll be taking a business trip next weekend for my pulp fan-group, so I’ll at least have a little fun traveling. My mother has also started her cancer treatment again after a two month resting period, though this was more due to her
