    Why do I do this to myself?

    Almost 1 million words to read to catch up on several longer stories I've been reading.
    7 open tabs on my phone browser.
    And the worry that I'll lose interest, soon, in at least one of them again.

    I just love to read pony words.

About Mocha

Greeting and salutations. Thanks for gracing me with your presence, it is my honor to welcome you to my place. Don't mind the mess, it's just a bit busy at the moment.

To the right you'll see a place to offer funds and tips for the work I do, and below that are the most recently updated stories I've done.

About me:

Here's a bit about me, since you're here and have read this far. I'm 35, from the Midwest USA, and have a varied work experience across the service and food industry.

I'm married but separated and have 3 kids from 4-13.

Best Artist: Pillowrabbit. I cropped, edited and put two pictures together.

My family and I are all into ponies. My wife got into it more recently after admitting she liked my clop stories, so I'll randomly go on clop writing sprees and the reason is because I like to make her happy, plus my readers like my stories. :pinkiehappy:

I've been a Brony since Feb. 15, 2015 when I came across a random promo video in my Youtube feed. It was StormFX version of My Little Dashie. By the end of the short video I was crying and realized that I didn't need to die to live. I put the plans for suicide away and watched more MLP fanfictions and videos.

Shortly after listening to Cupcakes, by Sergeant Sprinkles, I began writing gore.

I wasn't very good at grammar but I wrote solid stories and began to use Fimfiction as my medium. I switched to fantasy then branched out, keeping from the scary aspects of pony life until I was more experienced as a writer.

I wrote my first clopfic, Zap Apples the Forbidden Fruit, just to try it out. It took a life of its own and two sequels later it's still flowing in its own AU full of romance and passion, with dashes of adventure here and there.

A World Without a Rainboom is the first Adventure story I wrote. I wrote it in tandem with Zap Apples, so there are parts that share grammatical issues, while others I've gone over and fixed in AWWARB I have yet to rewrite and fix the grammatical issues in the clopfic.

I've made several lifelong friends, at least I hope they are, as meeting IRL is difficult. But, that's why we have Bronycon!

My Writing Style

I write the way I was taught in school during the 1980's. There are many times that writing in the English language, and there were many shifts between then and now. I use double spacing after periods in sentences and used to tab indent the start of every paragraph, because that's how we were told to write.

I've gotta a lot of comments about those two issues, and am working to learn modern writing rules, so if you've read this far, you now may understand why I write slightly differently, yet consistently the same way through the first fifty of my stories.

Thanks to editors such as Rancor, Deltablaze22, and others, I've grown significantly as a writer and as a person online and in real life. Without a varied crew and team of assistants, where we all help each other, I'd be a terrible writer with great stories; if that makes sense.

I will continue to grow as a writer and author in the fandom and someday beyond as long as I breathe. I have not plans to stop at writing pony words, but my speed at writing varies depending on my depression and workload.

My OC

My OC's name is Mocha, as is my name IRL. It's kind of a self insert, but I'm not one to Gary Stu anypony, ever. I am grounded in our reality so many times I actually under power the characters I write.

My OC is a brown earth pony with zebra striped mane. He's an alicorn (of the earth) but wants nothing to do with the powers he has access to and has been in hiding for several hundred years, just moving from town to town as needed.

He doesn't care about the state of the world, as the world was there before and will be after he is gone. Celestia thinks him gone to another reality or dead and doesn't care to find him. He's seen too much in his life and doesn't want to change the way things are now and won't interfere with any world changing events unless they are going to destroy the world and/or eradicate life on the planet.

Fav Ponies:

Princess: Luna

Mane 6: Applejack & Pinkie

Shippings:

PinkieShy

Side Character: Derpy

Depends on the day and my mood.
If I had to choose a tea it would be Earl Grey, hot.

Coffee would be a dark chocolate Mocha.

Tea or coffee?

I just wanted to say thank you for your comments on The Bridle Path. As you were commenting i found myself re-reading the chapters and going back though all those emotions I had as I was writing them. Pacing you as you went through the story. I'll try to keep up the quality, and happily I have some good mentors, editors and pre-readers to keep me on the straight and narrow.

2449235 thank you so much!

It's of my wife and I.
:heart:

Drawn by Pillowrabbit, look him up!
:)
