This is my quest. To follow that star! No matter how hopeless, no matter how far.


Changes to give Patrons more value... · 2:48pm Nov 22nd, 2020

So, every month for the past few years now I've done up a chapter of Brightly Lit or its sequel, Brightly Lit 2: Pharos. However, what I write after that has always been a major decision and I often have people clamoring for fresh chapters of stories that have had to sit for awhile. Also, I always feel guilty about taking money for writing. Yes, I know it's deserved and those of you who are Patrons are happy to support me, but I've always wanted to give you folks more.

Restart · 10:46am Sep 30th, 2020

Things are restarting. My children and I have accomplished our move and to quote my eldest daughter, "I never thought freedom would look like a three bedroom house."

So I'm sharing a couple of things with you all. First is my get up and go playlist of music. These are the songs I listen to when I want to feel invincible, with the wind at my back and words flowing from my fingers.

Temporary hold on all projects · 7:54am Sep 2nd, 2020

Without going into huge detail, the situation is that my daughters mother (who I am divorced from) threw them out of her house with an hour's notice today. They are with me now and we are trying to adjust, along with prepping to move to a bigger place on October 1.

We will be okay. We're just going to busy AF this month, hence the hold on things, though I will still do my best to get Brightly out.

We will be okay, and everything settled come October.

See you all on the flip side.


Reflections · 3:22am Jul 12th, 2020

Today is my birthday, and I have reflected a bit on what it means this day:

I am... satisfied with the life I've lived, and the choices I've made. Gods know they weren't always the right choices, but they were mine, and I am proud of all of them. Even the bad ones, because learning from them has made me a better person.

Regarding recent events and depictions. · 8:05pm Jul 4th, 2020

Recently, there have been attempts to "create a dialog" or "have a discussion" about whether Nazis or Nazism should be in any way portrayed, written about or depicted on this site. It has been said that to deny this would be to deny free speech. To prevent the free exchange of ideas. My response is as follows:

No Nazis, period. No Nazism, period.

Calling for character designs · 1:51pm Jun 21st, 2020

So here's the thing. In my story, Brightly Lit 2, there are soon going to be five new secondary characters who will appear in a chapter or two and then fade into the background. They may be referred to or pop out again from time to time but that's it. You're probably wondering where I'm going with this.

My own personal opinion · 1:06pm Apr 19th, 2020

The following are my own personal opinions about two major story subgroups here on FimFiction. They are my personal opinions and I will not think less or more of anyone who agrees or disagrees with me.

I absolutely loathe the Fall of Equestria stories.

This one is Cryptic · 9:38am Mar 15th, 2020

I prefer, this original version to start writing to.

Pain or not, the muse must be obeyed. I know no fear, but a story untold.

Frack, Frell, Faldercarb, and other fun words. · 5:53pm Mar 11th, 2020

That's me right now.

Though I have been recovering from my back injury, the rate of healing has been slow. Too slow, even for an older pony such as myself. I finally dragged my carcass over to a professional back-cracker who I know and has seen me in the past enough to know that when I show up in his office it's because I am in genuine pain.

He pokes, he prods. I make noises at what I think are appropriate moments. Then he turns me around and looks me in the eye, saying:
