Animation Update · 6:02pm May 25th

So since the last blog I had literally, on the day of, started a massive animation project. I didn't realize how massive it was, but it has been about 3 months now and it still isn't finished despite having worked nearly every day on it. I had a whole schedule for it too, work 5 days a week for 2 hours animating. I thought that'd knock it out of the park, but I've only animated 3 minutes so far and I'm getting really burnt out by it all so I hadn't actually worked on it for the last 2 weeks. I

I'm an animator now · 12:30am February 15th

I can be found on twitter and I make stuff surrounding Hellhounds. Even set up a Patreon for it but nothing has really taken off.

A tossed aside storyline · 6:15pm Jun 10th, 2023

I decided to release all my previously planned storylines that I had drawn up and I have a LOT of them, and some are vague, some are detailed, and more than a few aren't even MLP related. I think that by having to throw my ideas out in the wild, I could re-examine them. Ideas are only as good as the execution, so I don't believe any of them are good due to my failure to complete the stories they're attached to.

I'll start with the two fics I had posted on this site.

Rock and Stone! Some writing prompts on the side · 11:23pm Mar 21st, 2023

So update from last time. I managed to find a new job by pure chance, and how I got hired is a tad strange to me. So I was walking around looking for buildings that had the whole "WE ARE HIRING" poster on the front, and whilst waltzing past some building under construction I took a look at one of the papers plastered on the side of it. Within a second of me stopping in front of the building to look some guy comes running out the building asking if I'm looking for a job. A tad confused I say

Compulsive lies · 9:00am Feb 1st, 2023

I tend to lie through admission rather often. It's a bad habit of mine that happens either on accident or on purpose, and my most recent lie through admission would be in regards to my work. I quit my job. Had a two, more like three, week notice too. This important news has not been conveyed to literally anyone of my friends or family. This is not the first time I've done this, albeit the first time when it happened I felt quite liberated for a couple of reasons I shall shortly explain and

Late Merry Christmas · 12:58pm Dec 27th, 2022

Here's another log for the sometimes monthly diary so I don't ever forget who I used to be once the years pass by. I don't particularly celebrate christmas all that much, but merry christmas all the same. This year's holidays was both disappointing and wasn't at the same time, and for a reason that makes me feel like a hypocrite upon trying to type it out, since I generally disliked whatever presents were thrown at me. My favorite among them was a book, or more specifically a graphic

Discussion on Writing: What does it mean to be right? · 2:29pm Nov 24th, 2022

Whenever you experience a story either it be from, movies, books, or video games there will come a point in the story where a truth is declared either it be justice prevail or something more nuanced like the meaning of determination and death. Usually how true it is becomes irrelevant as for the purposes of the story it being true rounds out the story. Doesn't really matter if Justice doesn't always prevail in real life, as its a story meant to inspire hope or be an escape so you can believe it

Some Reading suggestions and my general activity · 2:55pm Oct 14th, 2022

I've found myself reading on a website called Royal Road as of late as one story on there took my immediate attention for a very special reason. Now for some basic backstory I used to be a Displaced writer here, many of those projects long since deleted or old chapters on current stories just hidden, so low and behold when I found a story called Displaced. The story even had the same premise as the displaced fics on this site with a minor change in that the powers gained aren't explicitly said

Denying Tragedy · 6:13am Oct 5th, 2022

My last blog was me talking about how I adore tragedy, but I'm gonna make this one the opposite on why there are instances where I find it incredibly annoying. Though of course before I do so I want to mention a few minor things as a tangent. I've started a rather large editing project where I went back to old RP Discords servers and redo those scenes in a new format to make it into an actual story, which has been on my mind for a while. Initially I thought it would be a simple editing job

Accepting Tragedy · 1:34pm Sep 6th, 2022

Recently I have discovered an unusual preference in the stuff I read, mostly in how I didn't notice sooner. I absolutely adore tragedy. I would like to try and detail as to why, because for the longest time my favorite thing to read was usually the opposite. To begin I don't have full understanding of myself, so some of what I say may not be...conclusive, or just vague. For example I have come to associate tragedy to depth of character, which isn't really true nor does it even explain
