Just some leftover detritus of a fandom that long ago reached its peak and burned out. Still, better late than never.

About the Author / Sweeping Edits Pt.2 · 6:07am Aug 17th, 2020

With Chapter 13 of [EG:BFF I] now out, thus completing Act 2, it's once again time for another round of sweeping edits to help tighten/clean up the story so far, and to chronicle my current self's thinking so as to explain to my future self where their decisions in life may have went terribly, terribly wrong. I'll be going through both Acts this time, with Act 1 being skimmed for small errors and Act 2 undergoing tweaks, expansions and rewrites where appropriate.

EG:BFF I - One Thousand(ish) Views - Whoo! · 3:07am May 16th, 2020

It is a sad truth that, no matter how much MLP may preach lessons that can make us better people, reality is not quite as positive an experience.

In reality, I am the antithesis of MLP.
I am a bitter, cynical misanthropist who gave up on so much of what they once believed in. Passions, hopes, aspirations—all of the things that made me an aspiring artist—they all withered away long ago.

Revisions and Reminiscence - Chapters 6, 7, and 8 · 4:42am Apr 19th, 2020

Before my future self complains, I could make many viable excuses for why this took a while to complete. I could talk about how busy life's gotten, especially during this pandemic, or how I've been noodling with other important projects that hopefully bear fruit later on. But here's the real excuse for why this took so long:

Screw you, I'll get to it when I get to it.

Revisions and Reminiscence - Chapters 4 and 5 · 6:25am Mar 27th, 2020

Almost 15,000 words in before the main characters actually speak to each other in the present. I'd call this story a slow boil, but you could probably heat up noodles with a damn flashlight faster than conflicts do with my own writing!

Revisions and Reminiscence - Chapter 3 · 4:06am Mar 14th, 2020

If I didn't know any better, I'd hazard that Chapter 3 of EG:BFF was written as a rebuke to how Chapter 2 was composed, as if to say "Look, fool, here's how you do flashbacks properly: you make the time periods distinct, and you make sure to clearly identify which period is taking place at the current moment!"
Just a shame that my past self is too busy scarfing down candy to pay attention...

Note to my future self for when he reads this:
QUIT REFERENCING REAL WORLD THINGS IN YOUR WRITING, JACKASS! IT'S OBNOXIOUS, AND IT TAKES FOREVER TO CORRELATE APPROPRIATE HORSE-PUNS! Keep up the good work, though.

Not quite sure who, if anyone, will read this (especially considering it's literally my first blog post ever). Still, I figure it's good to chronicle these sort of things for personal posterity, if nothing else. Also, I'd like to be able to look back on the development of my story in greater detail over time.
