My writing is going to slow drastically. · 2:32am Last Friday

I just got a job earlier this week so I won't have nearly as much time to write (working almost 50 hours with my current schedule). As well as that I'm switching to a new bedroom and I finally got my learner's permit (just a few years late on that), so those are going to take up a bit more time for a while.

Semi-important update · 12:25pm May 3rd

So two things.

1. The masses have spoken (and by that I mean one person voted on my poll), and they want me to continue the BattleTech spinoff (renamed to FiMTech) so that's what I'll do. I ordered the Legend of the Jade Phoenix trilogy and I'm gonna read the books as fast as I can before I start writing again, so hopefully that will enable me to make the clanners a bit more authentic in how they speak and act.

What should I write next? · 1:09am April 28th

I know I said I’m on break, but I’ve actually still been doing some writing. Oops?

I’m kind of undecided on what I want to write next, so I figured I’d ask the two or three people who read my blogs which idea they like best. I’ve got an anonymous google survey for it, so that should make things easy.

The Poll

New title for the story? · 7:10pm April 27th

So during my break from writing I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, both about this story’s universe and ideas for new ones. I kind of want to change the name to something shorter since the current one is a bit more than a mouthful. I can’t really think of any ideas, though. I like the idea of a spinoff on the word “BattleTech,” but I can’t think of anything good. FiMTech crossed my mind, but I don’t know. It just seems a bit weird. It might be better than what I’ve got now, though. Anyone got

My first full fanfic is finally complete (well, part 1 is, anyway) · 8:57pm April 19th

85k words later and I have a story I'm happy with. This story reignited my love for BattleTech. I'll have to catch up on a bunch more of the lore before I start part two. Time for a long, relaxing break.

So close I can taste it · 6:56pm April 19th

I just have to proofread and publish 15k words and my first real fanfic will be done. I love the plot twists I put into it at the end, and I hope the ending is as enjoyable to read as it was to write. I re-wrote quite a few scenes many times until I was eventually happy with them, and I can safely say I'm proud of this story.

I've never felt so sad writing something before. · 3:20am April 17th

On occasion I'll cry during a sad movie, or maybe even the odd book, but I never thought I'd cry while writing (well, very nearly cry, anyway). Not gonna say what happens, just know that this next chapter is why the tragedy tag is included in the story. It and the epilogue should be released by the end of the week. I'll publish them together, though I don't know how long the epilogue is going to be yet. Definitely longer than the prologue, but not as long as an actual chapter.

I just discovered the horizontal rule tool. · 2:38pm April 16th


That one.


I've just been doing this because I didn't know that tool existed.

I'll have to start using that at some point. Maybe once I begin a new story. I don't really feel like switching to something new in the middle of one.

Hoo boy, chapter 9 is a long one. · 6:05pm April 3rd

It's a lot for one chapter, but I don't think there's enough content to split it into two without dragging things out or rewriting the whole chapter. I'll try to keep it under 8k words, but I'm not making any promises.

Also, there's a subtle reference to MechWarrior 3 in the chapter if you catch it. Just thought you should know. It should be out in the next couple of days.

I'm Back! (already) · 9:24pm April 1st

I managed to get my laptop running(ish) again, so I can start writing. I've got Ubuntu running off of a thumb drive, and I'm actually really liking it so far. I'm considering installing it to my new drive when I get it so that I can actually use it properly. Only having 2GB of free storage bites.

I feel like writing a nice little one-shot story to celebrate (and also because it's April 1st and I've got a good idea for a joke themed fic). I'll probably do that after dinner.
