Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen · 2:44am October 10th

I never plugged GhostOfHeraclitus' wonderful 500-word story, "Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen", which he posted in 2016. Probably because Ghost sneakily published it in horizon's Never the Final Word anthology.

Rich Burlew (Order of the Stick) accidentally made a comic strip version of "Elpis"!

I tried inlining the image here, but it turns out it's too tall to display on fimfiction. Here are the first 5 panels:

Bronycon 2018 blow-by-blow · 4:10am August 13th

Another year, another Bronycon!  I've been going since at least 2013, which makes 6 Bronycons for me.

6 Bronycons.  Man. Has it been that long?  What have I accomplished in 6 years?

Other than writing pony stories and blog posts, not much.  There's a point during every convention where I begin to wonder: What am I doing here?  Shouldn't I be strangling my soul slowly with a 9-5 job to support a couple of kids?

He's trying to raise Bronycon money by story commissions.

Capn_Chryssalid and Q&A at talks · 8:35pm July 16th

During the "Advanced Writing" panel at Bronycon 2016, I said that the "rules" about what qualities made fiction good had changed over the centuries.  One example I probably gave (I'm not going to watch the whole video now to check) was that characters didn't have arcs before Shakespeare. Today, screenwriters take it as gospel that a story must be about a character changing.  For most of the time between Homer and Shakespeare, change
