New cover art! · 5:41pm Jul 26th, 2021

Just a small update for you today! If you haven't noticed, the story now has new cover art with an illustration by the awesome Featherhors. I know this story is marked as "complete" but I do plan to write additional chapters in the near future, so feel free to follow it and maybe you'll get some surprise updates every now and again.

The beginning of the end · 6:56am Jun 1st, 2021

The first of the final seven chapters is being published in less than a day. Expect the remaining chapters to be published daily up until the ending. If you’ve stuck around for the story so far then I really appreciate it, this has truly been a passion project.

Looking for feedback · 6:14am May 25th, 2021

So the story is on a small hiatus, but two of the eight remaining chapters are done. The third is being written as we speak, and the remaining ones should be hopefully finished in the next two weeks assuming I keep up with the same writing schedule I am right now. What that means is that the story could be finished in roughly two or three weeks. So what I'm hoping for right now is some feedback on the story so far. I'd like to know what readers think of the characters, of the narrative, pacing,

Some News! · 4:37am May 21st, 2021

This week's regular update is kind of a special one. It's kind of the soft finale before the story goes on a hiatus for a little while. I don't want to keep it there too long, but what I wanted to try is writing out the rest of the story so I can release the remaining chapters as daily updates up until the full finale. As it stands right now, after completing my outline there's about eight chapters left. This could fluctuate, but expect something to that effect. I hope you'll all bear with me,

Short break in updating · 3:32am May 1st, 2021

Hi there! For those of you who are actively following along with the story, I have some bad news. Tomorrow's regularly scheduled chapter update will be pushed back until either mid week or next weekend. It's a little bigger than usual and it's taken me a little longer to write as a result. Another reason is that Midair Pony Fair is this weekend and I'll be taking part in the trivia panel, so that's also consumed a little bit of time. Stay tuned though, there might be a double chapter post this

Where we’re at so far · 6:05am Apr 16th, 2021

Things are starting to move along at a quicker pace and pretty soon we’ll be hitting the end. Chapter 41 is more or less locked and loaded for the usual Saturday update (Which is also incidentally my birthday AND bat appreciation day!). Right now there’s probably a good ten or so chapters left, but this could always wind up changing too just given how things naturally evolve over time.

My passion project is one year old today! · 3:53am Mar 23rd, 2021

Do Ponies on Earth have Magic Dreams? just turned one year old today, and that's an exciting event for me just because of how special this story is to me. This story started as a rewrite of the very first story I had ever written. As first stories often are, it was rough around the edges, overly bloated, and the dialogue and characterization were just a complete mess. That said, it was the first long story I had ever finished, so even if it was a complete mess, it was still special to

So here's how we're going to do things! · 4:59am Mar 17th, 2021

So in my last blog I talked about how I was splitting "New Horizons" into multiple stories. Turns out that that's going to be three separate stories. The first is going to focus on Silver and Scarlet, and is going to more or less contain the majority of these chapters (Except for family Christmas which was a cut Christmas chapter that might see the light of day someday!)

Some thoughts, some reflections, and some plans for the future · 4:49am Mar 14th, 2021

So here's the deal. I've been focusing a lot on the rewrite of my first story "Do Ponies on Earth have Magic Dreams?" and so far I've really enjoyed how it's turned out. I'm about to hit the point in the story where the event that set the ending in motion take place, and so I decided to poke at the sequel's planning doc just so I could get back into the swing of things. I've gone through and reread the existing story from start to end, and in a move that doesn't really surprise me at all, I

Half way through the story, a small update, and an honest question · 1:41am Jan 27th, 2021

So with our latest chapter we're officially roughly through the half way point of the story. I still have a lot planned, however the story is most likely going to get split up into a second part before the third act begins. Now, I had started writing out the next chapter, and planned to release it this weekend, however I'm actually going to shuffle things around slightly to better suit the story, so there's probably going to be a small delay. So onto the third part of the blog title: an honest
