How To Lose a Month of Your Life · 6:25am Sep 11th, 2016

Right off, just to keep everything straight, this is not a post of alarm, or apology, or even pity. This is a - very abridged - account of everything that happened in the last month as a way of explaining why I haven't logged in, checked in on authors, or emails, let my editing and correspondence fall by the wayside across this site and others, etc. It's not cause for alarm because things are more stable now. It's not an apology because given a similar set of circumstances I'd be making the

This is just a note since it's easier to make one blog post rather than individual PMs. If you're reading this and I have no outstanding editing work for you at the moment, this message is safe to disregard.

Note to Self... · 6:23am Apr 15th, 2014

...next time you help an old high school friend clean out their crazy mother's mansion - think Hoarders and Antiques Roadshow having a love child - with promised payment of some really awesome, old, well-maintained (relatively speaking) furniture, and said crazy mother walks out holding a fully loaded .38 revolver and asks if anyone knows how to remove the bullets without firing the gun, because if no one knows how she's going to "shoot the gun until it's empty," make sure you send all wives

Day Thirteen Status Report: Still Dead · 4:42am Oct 4th, 2013

So I may have already shared this tidbit to some of you that I edit for, but I've been having car troubles the past six weeks. My Ford 500 has developed a nasty habit lately I like to call "not having any fucking power in it." I go outside and the car's completely drained. First time, they (the dealership) replaced the battery. All good... for about a week. Then they said I had an electrical short with my Bluetooth device. With the device disabled and another fresh battery, the car lasted a

Birthdays · 6:05am Sep 3rd, 2013

When I turned twelve, I looked like I was ten. I got a guitar for my birthday. My parents saved up and got me a really nice Gibson after I spent a year practically begging for one. Because I didn’t look old enough physically to impress the girls I was suddenly taking an interest in, I decided that my angle would be through music. After all, I had a pretty good singing voice already when I didn’t sound like this guy. With guitar in hand I was

Want To Meet the REAL Me? · 5:13am Apr 1st, 2013

Emboldened by my new promotion to gold member status - I knew those weekly kickbacks would pay dividends - I have decided in an act of magnanimity to open up a little more to the community that has welcomed me so with its corrupt arms stretched wide.

As such, here's a family photo of the First_Down household:

This Is Not What I Wanted My Second Post To Be About · 10:40pm Mar 26th, 2013

Apologies for interjecting a sober, highly off-topic announcement into a site that celebrates artistic levity and creativity, but I'm posting this in the few corners of the Internet I frequent on the off chance someone might be interested:

The Rambling Self-Interview of a Six Month-Old Geriatric · 6:50am Nov 27th, 2012

If you're here in this small, little corner of FimFiction perhaps it's because you read this, or you read a couple of my chapters from this, or maybe you're here by accident. Whichever, if you're reading, and I have your attention, then perhaps I should say hello. Would be the neighborly thing to do
