Signal Boost: Shrink Laureate's Free Moon · 3:22pm April 9th

I've been not very active since last month, but Shrink has been: Free Moon

The thousand-word story is a difficult format, hard to start and finish a story without it simply being an idea, or a feeling. Getting both in that straitjacket is a challenge.

Signal Boost: Shrink Laureate's The Best and The Worst · 1:18pm March 17th

Shrink Laureate finished his contribution to that crackship contest: The Best and The Worst

Of course I'd have a soft spot for it, it's a Gilda story.

Endings And Cliffhangers · 1:03am March 5th

So, after more than three years, I've finally put The Princess's Bit to bed. It's now complete. It ended up becoming my second-longest story, but the biggest problem was that I lost my drive to write for over a year. Part of that was losing my long-time job, and part of it was a medical issue, but most of it was just... me.

The Terrible Temptation Of Online Toys And The Shallowest Of Deepfakes · 12:20am Jan 9th, 2021

So, FanofMostEverything broke the news about 15.ai, and I spent way too much time playing around with it today, and now I'm feeling guilty after hearing how much the server is costing the poor dumb student who came up with this horrifically tempting toy.

Until I justify the expense, here's four clips I wasted the poor sap's server time on:

The Little Humpbacked Horse · 10:46pm Oct 20th, 2020

So, I read a certain blog that, among a great many other things, features a daily piece of fine art every morning.

My faithful editor and writing circle compatriot Shrink Laureate's back with a one-shot (Is it still a one-shot with two chapters? Eh, I'll allow it) for the Ponidox contest. Princess Regnant Twilight meets Filly Student Twilight!
