No Idea What I'm Doing · 2:17pm 6 days ago

Am I supposed to be writing something? I really don't remember.

Bookkeeping · 7:36pm November 15th

I'm up to revising chapter 6 of Pillars of Society. A lot of these chapters have nothing wrong with them except a few places where I want to change the wording and some typos, and go quick. Also I used to put spaces around em dashes? Why was I doing that. That's objectively the wrong way to do it. No spaces is right. I'm pretty sure it's in the Bible somewhere.

The real time sink will be if I decide to add any scenes.

Here's that Scene I Mentioned · 1:55pm November 14th

It's part of FoE:Pillars of Society, but I very much like it and it's pre-war, so it stands alone.

If you want to read a cute/uplifting Lyra/Celestia scene here is it. Contains discussion of drug use. Maybe it's a pony after-school special? Don't do drugs, foals, or you'll wind up with extra homework.

Case of the Mondays? · 1:12pm November 14th

It's Monday morning. I have severe social anxiety and 700 phone calls to make. My leg is wobbly at best. I am failing at Nano. I am also failing at the need be productive instead of watching Zootopia+.

There. I only watched one. Which was worth it.

I have written a scene where Celestia is laid-back and forgiving about Lyra using hard magic-drugs. Honestly I think I'm going to run with it with minor edits.

My Brain Doesn't Work Well Enough · 7:53pm November 4th

I want to be creative right now. I'm inspired*. I should be able to make works come out of my brain. But it's not working

Takes brain out of skull. Smacks it in table.

No, that didn't help. Maybe if I try turning my brain off and then turning it back on again?

What I'm Doing · 12:33pm November 3rd

I'm doing Nano, but not for pony. My stabs at original fic have been halting and disorganized, but I do like to do it sometimes. I'm blundering into discovery writing a new thing. Kind'a like Tales from the Gas Station, but more bisexual. Or like paranormal Clerks but less romantic, more overtly bisexual*, and with less horse sex.**

Yes, less horse sex than the source material for once.

I might’ve forgotten to take my extra meds. Plz disregard any other posts I might’ve made.

Something Strange about the Site Statistics · 6:50pm October 28th

Feeling bored and unfocused as I sometimes (often) do, I looked at the site statistics. Stories posted are of course down; anyone writing knows the stats are lower than the were in the glory days. We will never see those days again unless they give Gen 6 to Vivziepop or something (and being the hermit I am) I am not sure I mind.

The strange thing is: new user registrations are way, way up. The site hasn't had this many new users/month since 2013.

So About Sunny... · 1:23am October 28th

I'm slow on the new show, but I'm getting deeper into MYM and... Sunny's autistic, right? Obsessive special interests, nonexistent social skills, freakouts? She's autistic. In MYM it rolls off her in waves.

Like, spectrum rep isn't exactly a new boundary for the show to cross, either. So. I'm going with that if I ever write about her. I was initially going anarchist, which she is, but that's surface-layer.

Anarchist princess lol. I love it.
