    Cover art for bugfic

    So its been ages since I last attempted to make art for my bugfic, and its gone all this while without a proper cover art for the story.

    I think its high time I fix that.
    I mean, I'm not particularly skilled at making digital art that isn't abstract or surreal or [other terms I can use to describe being a blurry mess and making up for lack in skill]

    I'll keep you all posted with my progress in doing so, but it still isn't really that much of a priority to me.

    Funny little fact

    With how much I've been writing for my bugfic and the myudiecorn fic, I've actually started using pony terms on accident in actual conversation.

    things like anypony and everypony, somepony especially since its similar to the original. I've also been calling states by their pony equivalent names from time to time.

    I've even accidentally said "Stalliongrad" when talking about WW2 and cold war stuff.

    Trying to get back on track, kind of succeeding

    So after falling into a slump again, I've rebounded and hammered out some quality writing for both my bugfic and my mutiecorn fallout fic
    I'm working my way back into habit of writing a little bit every night (that turns into a lotta bit) so that I can actually start getting chapters out in a reasonable timeframe and not keep going on these months long hiatuses.

    that being said, I've got work to keep a roof over my head, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

    Aaaaand it happened again

    Yet again, same story on a different day.
    there's a poetic irony here somewhere, but I can't find it.

    another chapter bogged down in the details and spinning my tires with development hell

    well, if I'm being completely honest, this is mostly a result of me being easily distracted and procrastinating.
    I'm working on that.

    whatever the case may be, I am *not* having another month go by with this chapter sitting unfinished on my hard-drive.

Writing is such an emotional experience for me.

I pour so much of my heart into the words I type out onto my pages.
I invest countless hours into research and finding inspiration from worthwhile sources.

I chew it all together into a legible and hopefully enjoyable medium that I share with those who'd want to see it.
Yet as I sit here and slam my face into my keyboard over and over and over again...
I feel like at any given moment I'm two steps from ripping everything up and throwing in the towel.
That, or devote myself and every waking moment of my being to hammering out the entirety of a story in one long burnout session of word vomit and polishing it later.

frustration is the word I'm looking for.

I need to look at the definitions for words a LOT more often

lotta words I thought I knew the meaning to because of the context I saw them in only for me to not quite be on point with the definition.
I wasn't far off at least, in the sense it doesn't ruin the dialogue I'm going for, but it isn't 100% what I had in mind either.

oh well, its a minor thing, not worth getting upset over.
English is such a confusing language sometimes

the silver lining to it all is that I've been putting work into future encounters and planned sequences; whenever I get stuck on a part of the current chapter, I diverge and work on elements of a future chapter.

I have an entire folder dedicated to scratch paper for ideas, future segments, character interactions, and the like.
So, at the very least, while current chapter progress has been regrettably slow (to an unacceptable degree), I haven't been completely wasting my time in terms of story content overall.

I know that feeling and situation. Hope some of the hits where rather of the good kind. Good to see you activ at all so i have hoped of a update or three in this year :eeyup:

life's been hitting me in unexpected ways lately, but I'm doing my best to keep at it when I can.

sorry for the lack of content
