The worst written fanfic is still better than the greatest story never told.

Thoughts on writing and The Fifth Session of EoT · 6:50am July 9th

So it appears I can comfortably manage to write about 10k words a week, plus a few thousand more if I’m on a roll. Which is roughly 1400 words a day. That’s unacceptable. “Wait, what the hell?” I hear you cry out. “That’s like an entire story, every day! How is that unacceptable!?” Well, you person who probably didn’t say that. There’s a bit of backstory to that number, or more importantly, to the number 1,667. Waaaaay back in 2006, my sister introduced me to a little thing called

The Third and Fourth Sesions · 4:12am July 2nd

Two short sessions leads to two short chapter updates. Well, short for me. My first story (The Mask of Despair and the Face of Hope) I had intended to be only 50k-60k. It ballooned up to double that. Even my short story (What do you Think?) was supposed to be under 5k words, and ended up being 7k. I also never intended the first

The 2nd Session notes and details. · 5:56am June 27th

Freaking. Yak.

I didn't make up most of his jokes. Those were right out of the player's mouth. He really did say "Yak will sleep with Pony." He really did attack the unlocked door after it was already being opened. Tiny really did challenge the Yak to a damage-off on the Helmed Horror (the animated armor, none of them were able to identify it) Red won. (It was resistant to physical damage, not Fire)

"The Elements of Tyranny" characters and builds · 6:54pm June 20th

I’m writing this blog for giggles, and in case anyone bothers to read “The Elements of Tyranny” and wants to know what it is we are doing.

We’re playing the Planeshift: Equestria homebrew thing that popped up on EQD a while ago. It’s pretty adorable, although it’s got some nasty balance issues.

Some thoughts regarding the process of writing and posting "The Mask of Despair and the Face of Hope" · 9:08pm June 8th

So, I’ve learned a few things from doing this the way I did. First and foremost, don’t change POV and tense mid-write. When I began this project, I was working in third person point of view, and present tense. About 40% of the way through it I came upon the idea of the framing device of starting the story right as Twilight resolved the crisis. (hence: “We Begin at the End” and “We End at the Beginning”) However, this necessitated a shift in writing style into first person past tense.
