MockingBirb Made a Cover Image By Editing One Or Multiple Screencaps from "My Little Pony" And/Or Related Videos. · 10:09am June 17th

I make some of my cover images by editing frames from episodes, movies, or related canon MLP videos. Sometimes I even combine materials from more than one frame. Because there's no direct source for my image online, this blog post might be the closest thing to a "source" I can link!
:twilightsmile:

That's how I got cover images for stories like the examples below.

Cropped Screencap From "My Little Pony" Or Related Canon Video. · 9:44am June 17th

On fimfiction.net, a story's author can link from the story's cover image to the cover image's source.

Will That Story REALLY Return? Critiques, Rewrites, and the Next Thing · 9:28am June 17th

In April, I made this blog post: "Where That Story Went Today."

After a newly posted story of mine was analyzed and critiqued in considerable detail by an especially skilled writer whose thoughts I took (and still take) seriously, I unpublished the story while it was still very new.

Where That Story Went Today · 11:18pm April 14th

It finally happened! Someone gave me such valuable feedback on how to improve a story, I yanked the story to do a thorough rewrite.

The story will return.

Thank you, anonymous benecfactorbenefactor! :duck:

I wrote a fanfic with only one horse in it, and no ponies. · 2:34pm February 14th

The story might show us at least one Amazon warrior, dastardly fire priests, and Rapunzel standing up for truth and justice. Because when you don't have the truth, what do you have?

"Rapunzel Discovers Shoes" is a about a young woman who grew up in a very sheltered environment, where her captor told her many lies about the outside world.

A new science fiction story by ME, on a different website... · 4:55am January 14th

Ever wonder what I write when I'm not writing pony words?

I thought it would be funny to write a a 2000 word fanfic for a tweet-length Discord message: Smart Girls Beating You At Chess.

I have to say, I was expecting a shitpost, but there was actually a pretty fun story here that kind of sort of made sense.

One of the best writing tips. · 7:35am Oct 1st, 2020

As a dear friend might have pointed out to me, WHENEVER SOMEONE READS (OR IS READING) YOUR STORY, AND BECAUSE OF THEIR REACTION, YOU FEEL THE NEED TO EXPLAIN THAT THE THING THEY ARE REACTING TO, THEY ARE REACTING TO WRONG, AND REALLY IT WORKS, OR IT MAKES SENSE FOR SUCH AND SUCH REASON, OR WHATEVER?

"Forum > Cat" (Chapter One of a Short Story) · 3:42am Sep 22nd, 2020

Any stories where the protagonist, human or pony, can turn into a cat.
Sorry for such a specific request.

Chapter One: A Cat Is a Wish Your Heart Makes

Rainbow Dash said, "Wouldn't it be amazing if I could turn into a cat?"

Twilight snorted. "Are you sure there would even be a difference? Cats seem to sleep all the time, just like you."
