An off-again-on-again writer and father of a pony-fan. Incessant poking will make me write more/faster, by the way. (That's not sarcasm—I need reminders to write.)

Pinky the Kitchen Zombie · 3:27am Sep 25th, 2016

I've got to say that today's episode, "Every Little Thing She Does," struck a familiar note at one point: Pinky in the kitchen under Starlight's version of the "Imperius" curse. It was amazingly close to a scene in Words Failed Her where Pinky was madly baking in a magic-induced trance—except Twilight, at least, had the presence of mind to shut off the gas to the oven before she left in my story.

Pre-pre-readers? · 4:58am Aug 13th, 2014

Once again I'm looking for some pre-pre-readers to gather some... market research, yeah, that's it. I want to see if a story idea has legs and is worth following through on. So I've got 5k of words that could use some eyeballs and feedback. Any volunteers? I'll set the first few respondents up with a private GDocs copy of The Story So Far where they can make comments to their heart's content. No need to monitor grammar—I have my master editor, Spabble, to handle that later. I'm just looking for

That's "Al" short for "Albert," not "A.I." or "Artificial Intelligence." This is regular intelligence, hard at work. Watch it and improve your own. ;)

Emotional Contagion Spread Through Facebook · 4:47am Jun 18th, 2014

Maybe Twilight needs to find a way to prevent herself from seeing cat videos and meme images if she ever comes to our world. She wouldn't want to take our digital infections home with her now, would she? I like it when life imitates art (sorta).

Of Chaos Born · 4:07am Jun 12th, 2014

I'm working on a origin story for a particular villainess that does not begin with anything like a normal childhood. Her path here is far more transformative and closely intersects with that of another historical figure—one who's story I also plan to tell in a parallel tale—but her's is far more fun to start with. What follows is a first draft and prone to massive editing changes, as these things go, but I thought I'd share a bit with you. I fell in love with these two and their inevitable arc

Words Failed Her Audiobook - Test Chapter One · 5:35am Jan 12th, 2014

I've been saying I was going to do it, and now I've begun!

You can now listen to the first chapter of the Words Failed Her Audiobook!

Now, I'm hoping this works and sounds good for everyone. I'm putting this out before I finish the whole thing with the hope that I can get some feedback. Is it any good? Should I continue?

If you've got 20 minutes, check it out. :)

That's two thirds the way to being a good movie title! And far more watchers than I ever expected...

But we're supposed to celebrate round numbers, right? Why not primes? Well, maybe it's because numbers that end in a bunch of zeros are easy to convey by doing jazz-hands...

Still Writing · 1:14am Sep 18th, 2013

Yep, I'm still writing. Not hard and heavy, but I'm taking my time on this one and making it as good as I can make it. Sometimes this means working over the same scene a dozen or more times. Whatever it takes to make it something you all enjoy reading.

A New Story Begun · 3:46am May 1st, 2013

I'm about 4,000 words into a new story. The idea came out of left field and I decided to run with it. It'll be a while before I release the first chapter, but I'll test out an early synopsis here:

Freakish creatures live in the frozen moments between seconds, unseen and unknown. They live and die among unmoving statuary, unable to make any impact upon the world. Once, or so their stories go, one of the statues came to life.
