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

I did a dumb.... · 5:10am May 17th

No, not that. Not intentionally anyway.


Okay, here's the thing. When it all went to hell, one of the things that got me going again was getting regular, full-time work. I am, somewhat proud to say, a hard worker. I'm very much an equine in that regards. I was born in the Year of the Horse, as was my oldest child, as was my father, by strange coincidence. I am descended from a line of horse warriors, and in fact my last name is a bastardization of the name for them.

So, winter was hard. I found myself a cave to live in through it all.

Final Steps... · 7:33pm February 24th

Well, the next few days will bring into being one of the last steps on my road to recovery from the events of this past summer. I'll be moving out of the temporary vacation home I've spent the winter in and be moving to a permanent or at least long-term living situation.

End of the Year · 11:17am Dec 31st, 2018

So, on this, the final day of the year, I take a look back as is my custom, and decide if the year was a Win or a Loss.

Some years have been epic wins. Some have been equally epic losses, and a few have straddled the line between good and bad.

2018 has not been one of those years. It firmly lands in the column of Loss.

Update · 7:53pm Dec 22nd, 2018

I didn't feel like writing a proper blog post. Although I've been reminded it's been far too long since I wrote one. So here is my post, based on recent events of my life...


It’s a cold morning, just a few days before Hearth’s Warming Eve.  You’re not entirely sure why you’re here. The old pony you’ve come to visit is still alive and kicking, but the once unstoppable torrent of words from him has slowed to a mere trickle over the past few months.

Rebuilding · 9:43pm Aug 31st, 2018

It's been just over 4 weeks since my life underwent a sea change. I won't bore you all with repeating the details but I was literally down to just about nothing.

Then the Magic of Friendship happened.

And it all came to a crashing halt.... · 11:31pm Aug 2nd, 2018

Despite attempts to hold things together, and having what I thought was a functional detente, my marriage came to a screeching halt last night as my partner threw me out into the dark and cold with nothing but the clothes on my back. I am homeless, unable to return home for my things unless I have a police escort and before I do that I have to secure a place to live.

Just a quick note about my Patreon. · 11:24pm Jul 18th, 2018

I've gone and reworked my Patreon. Mainly because the OC slots were becoming commissioned stories in their own right without being actually commissioned. In place of that I've added a slot for another commissioned story and a tier for voting. Patrons at the $2/month or higher level get to decide what I'll be working on each month via a poll.

Here we go again! · 7:10pm Jul 1st, 2018

First off, Happy Canada Day to everyone! I was late to loving my country but I really do love living here. Also, to my American friends, Happy 4th of July, early one that is :) I've yet to find a video that better describes the relationship between our two nations better than this one from the 2010 Winter Olympics..

It is Done! · 6:06am May 4th, 2018

So, things are changing a bit.

Some of you may know that waaaay back last June I ran into some serious financial trouble and that one of my patrons rode to the rescue and saved my ass.  In exchange for the ass saving I had to pay them back in words. 100,000 words to be exact. So since then I have been labouring under that lash while at the same time working to meet my other writing commitments.
