I discovered The Bad Webcomic Wiki recently, and while browsing through the reviews stumbled across a link to an article on the site about Mary Sues. After reading it, well...

Discord's Apprentice: Complete · 2:19am Mar 15th, 2016

Yes, you did read that correctly. Discord's Apprentice, my second story and first semi-serious one, is finished, clocking in at 47,946 words. I know some people stuck it in their 'read when complete' bookshelf, so I'm posting this blog to let them know it's done.

I know this is usually where I thank a bunch of people, but I already did that in the author's note and I'm saving my More Honest Than Humble speech for something else. Instead, have a crazy song!

Growing Pains · 6:49pm Feb 16th, 2015

If you think your story is perfect, you're lying to yourself. The art of writing is a constant quest for self improvement, and everything you make can always be better. So go back and edit your stories. Make your oldest work match your latest in quality. And never stop changing. Because when you don't change, you don't live.
