Back from vacation… in the physical sense, at least. · 11:29pm August 24th

I'm still completely and utterly exhausted, so I'm going to keep this blog on the shorter, sloppier side of things, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I've made it back home safe and sound!

Airplane! · 9:59pm August 17th

So, long story short, I have some relatives I haven't seen since before the start of COVID. I've been meaning to find an opportunity to go out and visit them, and that opportunity opened up over the past two weeks.

And, well… I'm in the airport right next to my flight right now. If I'm reading my ticket correctly, I'll be boarding the plane in about ten minutes.

Here are some cool stories to check out while I work on mine! · 9:32pm March 1st

Well, I've gone two months into 2022 without posting anything here. Let's change that!

…So, yeah. January was a surprisingly busy month for me IRL, so I wasn't all that productive on the writing side of things. I was planning to get something done during the month's tail end, but the one-two punch of Seattle's Angels and the Royal Canterlot Library closing their doors knocked that wind right back out of my sails. It's been billowing on and off ever since, I'm afraid.

Thanks for reading Gone With the Light! · 12:57am Dec 18th, 2021

It took Familial Words, my previous most-liked story, over two years to get to 70 likes, and half of those only came about because I wrote a sequel.

Gone With the Light surpassed that mark in two days. Two. Days.

New Story: "Gone With the Light" · 8:59pm Dec 14th, 2021

Welp, I've finally done it! About fifteen minutes ago, I submitted a new story for auto-approval, and as of right now, that very story is atop the New column:

Freedom from the Cold Winter (AKA: Back from Hiatus) · 8:12pm Apr 28th, 2021

Hey, y'all. Been a while, hasn't it?

I know I've said this time and time again, but I cannot apologize enough for the unannounced hiatus. To put it simply, 2020 was a pretty crazy time; in the world at large, obviously, but also, to some extent, within the fandom itself. And, well, I'm afraid I just couldn't keep up with it all. I tried, mind you—I really did—but I just couldn't bring myself to finish any of the things I started. My heart just wasn't in it.

Shaking like static on a late-night TV. · 5:02pm Jun 4th, 2020

Hey, look, it's the semi-monthly reminder that I still exist!

Sorry for the continued disappearing act; I think I can speak for everyone when I say the year so far has been absurd beyond our wildest expectations. Long story short, I got swept up in the wave and all my plans started eroding.

Chipping Away at the Wordless Expanses · 10:38pm Feb 11th, 2020

I really wanted to get an entry done for the Young Six contest Miller Minus was hosting, but, well... that didn't pan out. Long story short, I got intimidated by all the big names joining the contest group, became paranoid that all my story ideas were terrible and I'd just end up completely embarrassing myself in front of some of my favorite active writers on this site, and by the time the deadline arrived I hadn't actually
