New Practice Story · 1:29am Oct 26th, 2019

Good Morning from my Writing Lair! This is Shadow_8472, and today, I have been starting work on a new story. Let's get started!

I want to begin by crediting my overall idea to TheMajorTechie with his story, "Let's Write a Story," and someone on the FimFiction Discord whom I saddly cannot give proper credit because I can't find the post that inspired me. Since this is a comment driven story, spoilers are ahead.

A Transition in Writing · 1:07am Oct 19th, 2019

Good Morning from my Writing Lair! This is Shadow_8472, and today, I updated the prologue for A Tale of Two Worlds. Let's get started.

This change marks a transition in my time here. I placed the story on hold to write a few shorter stories and learn even more. Stryker has also started ahead with a sequel to the original role play which may or may not get novelized.

Good Morning from my Writing Lair! This is Shadow_8472, and today I'm really just checking in. Let's get started!

I've been working on a side project I wanted to post this week. I don't want to give too much away, but it's not canon to A Tale of Two Worlds. A lot of my time this week went into getting a lot better, hanging out on the FimFiction Discord server. (If you want to preview my new story, I'm frequenting #writing-help).

Good morning from my Writing Lair! This is Shadow-8472, and today, I am changing the format of release for A Tale of Two Worlds. Let's get started!

Good Morning from my Writing Chair (still a working title)! This is Shadow_8472, and today, I'm pushing off Chapter 6 again. Let's get Started!

My weekly schedule is not totally out the window. While I may have given up on a weekly chapter of 3000 words, I still want to maintain a weekly presence here. I've been lurking on the Discord servers for both Fimfiction in general and The Writers' Group. I've gotten some solid advice in each place, and I'm trying to really boost my writing quality.
