A chaotic wedding, a missing editor, an announcement,and another first draft. · 7:36pm Jun 23rd, 2012

You don't have to pay much attention to the wedding bit. I was only invited, I'm not actually getting hitched.

In other news, I do feel like I have reason to party! Chapter 15's first draft is done!

And it's another massive double-length chapter. I can't seem to escape those. I'll be working on refining it post-haste!

May is over and where is chapter 15? · 5:39pm Jun 2nd, 2012

"As soon as I get back from hiatus, nothing will stop me from doing a chapter a week."
...
"Well, maybe I'm having trouble with that, but at least I've done a chapter a month."

Two notes about chapter 14, and announcement of a project (and how you can help) · 4:30am May 9th, 2012

Do you know that story-within-a-story that Momma told Celestia?
Do you know of the video storybook that Squeaks and co did for Equinox.
Long story short, Squeaks & co want to do the video storybook for The First Pegasus

FAQ? More like QNOABIAA (AKA, my thoughts on the Royal Wedding and it's impact on Paradise) · 8:01pm May 3rd, 2012

Questions No One Asked But I Answered Anyways (QNOABIAA)

So, what did you think of the finale?
Good, overall. They certainly went out of their way to make it big. I think the story suffered from the time constraints, forcing us to skip past or shorten a lot of development. The song, though, This Day Aria, was the best of the season.

So ...
Yes?

In which I fail at predicting the future (and include a special announcement at the end) · 5:24am Apr 21st, 2012

Chapter 14's first draft is complete.

I decided to make a shorter chapter to keep the ball ro---

Ha, ha! I suck at predicting length. This one is nearly cracking 8000 words, again. I'm not sure if that's cause for anyone to complain, though.

Hey, a plush! Wait, wasn't I a writer? · 5:50am Apr 20th, 2012

Yes. No. I mean, sure.
Just wanted to share this little thing my wonderful grandmother made.

Excited for the next chapter. · 5:32pm Apr 1st, 2012

I can't wait to drop this next chapter I'm working on. Now that both girls have their wings, I'm finally at the point in the story where I can start to introduce the crossover aspect of Paradise, where the sisters get to learn government under Muad'dib.

What to expect:
~How Celestia founds the Bene Equestrit on her home planet.
~How Luna introduces ponies reproduction through axlotl tanks in the form of a magic mirror (Remember the G1 UK comic? Yeah)

Why does it have to be called a "first draft" when it's like 80% of the work? · 3:55am Mar 15th, 2012

Someone tell me. I want to call it "almost done" draft, or "You're so cool for getting this far" draft. I'm not saying that a first draft is all a writer needs to do, but it is most of the work. I'm forging a world out nothing but the sterile white void of the page! I think this calls for a word more prestigious than "first draft!"

Maybe bold font with give it power. FIRST DRAFT dun dun dun dun duuuuuun!

Keeping people updated · 6:00am Feb 29th, 2012

I’ve decided to post every time I hit a mile stone of 1000 words. Maybe slightly less for this blog, actually, but I wanted to keep people in something of a loop and passing 3000 seemed good, as the average chapter is roughly 4000

I wish I had enough mind to say something clever, but I don't, so I'm going to err on the side of just being silly.

Anyways, I wanted to announce that my story has been sent to my proof-readers--Scratch that, reader (couldn't find the others on short notice). As soon as I get it back, I'm posting it up.

Well, that went down with surprisingly little silliness.
Silly picture? Silly picture.
