Say Something · 5:17am Nov 28th, 2020

Some time ago I remember reading someone say something along the lines of this; "We are social creatures and we need to talk and interact with each other." I don't remember if it was from a blog here or from an opinion piece elsewhere but the part about it that stuck with me was about struggling with isolation due to the virus. They went on to express how they couldn't wait for things to return to some semblance of how things were before.

The end of the Crystal Ball trilogy · 1:32am Mar 3rd, 2020

I genuinely can't say enough about this series. I say series referring to the trilogy and Reflections as one. It is my favorite series that I have found so far and, unfortunately in my eyes, it is finally over. I finally read the final chapter that was posted.

I'm not going to post any direct reactions so as to avoid spoilers. If you want to read the series here is the first story. Feedback

A Letter Short is up and the backstory · 10:34pm Aug 30th, 2019

I have a new story up. It is the first of two stories from Bronycon 2019. It is called A Letter Short. The idea for the story came to me while sitting in Q&S and a typewriter broke. Well, not when it broke. It broke and then I went to a panel. It was when I returned and sitting next to it that what was said about it when it was being put to the side ran through my head. Specifically the fact that it couldn't be used to write a story.

Bronycon 2019 and an update to Windup's story · 1:54am Aug 7th, 2019

It was a great experience. That said most of my time was spent going to different panels and events that were taking place. As a result, I didn't get to talk to as many people as I would have liked. For example, I never got to see Somber, Scampy, Bookplayer or Heartshine to name just a few. Trust me the list was a lot longer than that. Whom I did get to talk to I really enjoyed the conversations and getting to meet new people was great. Also what I did get to do I really enjoyed. There was just

Bones · 3:05am Feb 7th, 2019

Before I say anything let me preface this with a statement warning that this blog will talk about depression and suicide. If that is something your either uncomfortable about or cant handle this is the point that you should stop reading and move on.

Tomorrow my first chapter, if all goes well · 4:48am Dec 28th, 2018

So the first chapter of my first story is ready to go up. However I want to go over it one final time before I push the publish button. Unfortunately that means waiting until tomorrow as I don't have time to go over it before I have to go to my night job. That said I know I read in a guide that writing such stories it is a good idea to write multiple chapters off of the bat however with this one having a holiday theme to go with it I wanted to get it up alone.

Character creation, knowing what is too much and a free cut scene · 5:59am Dec 15th, 2018

Every story I am working on has a theme that it is exploring. "Pony trapped in time" is my angry response to a particular episode and its take on mind control being a laughing matter. Its not an angry story. Just the core of the story was formulated around what I really didn't like from the message of that episode and thus I put together a story that aimed to show a much more nefarious use of mind control to show that it is no laughing matter. However this post has nothing to do with that

The difficulties in writing your first stories · 2:07pm Nov 18th, 2018

Especially when your a perfectionist it can be difficult. Particularly when your stuck on the naming of your characters with one story. I'm behind where I would ideally like to be with my two stories. One I've done a semi major rewrite. It was needed and I'll get to that later because with the other story I'm hung up on the naming of my 2 OCs in them. Which is ridiculous! The bigger problem is that with my job being what it is any time working on these stories is going to all but disappear for
