Roxie made this for me! ^.^


I'm now on Patreon!
Please help me stay focused and motivated on writing. I need your help!

I do commissions! See my Commissions Roster and Information Sheet for everything you need to know.

My inspiration to keep going:
(Edited to maintain anonymity.)

My friend [...] recently read One In A Million, as you know. What you may not know is that he loved it so much that he's been telling me all about it and how it really hit him where it hurt. In a good way, though.

For a long time, he's been unable to put fingers to keyboard on his own story, [...], citing it as a piece of trash that should be deleted. He's had low self-esteem ever since I've known him (about 9 months) and he has flirted with the idea of suicide more often than I'd like to admit.

Now, however, he seems to be coming out of his negativity... in quite a few aspects of his life. We're actually friends irl, so it's been wonderful to see the reversal in his attitude to life and writing lately, among other things.

One In a Million changed him. And I have you to thank for that.

Keep on trucking, you beautiful, beautiful bastard. -- NeverEatTheLemonsAlone

Every time I read this story you play with my heartstrings and spit in my face. --Obsidian Raindrop

That's alright. This year's Bronycon is over and done with. Next year's... :pinkiehappy:

2635918
Oh man... I haven't been to a con in years.
Won't be going this year, though; already took my summer vacation (to the Black Hills and Glacier NP), and there weren't any cons in that area.

Will there be an ocalhoun at next year's Bronycon? I seem to remember you being there 2 years back, but I never got to shake your hand. Don't worry, I'll wash it first. :derpytongue2:

Sure, go for it.

Hey, is it alright if I reference your story “Unicorn Horns Are Made Of Candy” in a message to the ask blog at bookhorse.net?

Huh? What did I roast?

Just want to let you know that even though we disagree on stuff in groups, I still like your stories. <3

If 'my tongue wanted to slip out' or 'I wanted to slip my tongue out of my mouth' won't do, then "my tongue wanted to slip out of my mouth" is preferable, I think.

'The tongue' sounds strange and oddly impersonal, like it doesn't even belong to you.

It's all subjective anyway, and there's no rule that says you can't have two 'my's in the same sentence. Whatever helps accomplish the goals of the story.

I am the editor for that story and another example about the my usage. I changed a sentence from The tongue wanted to slip out of my mouth to my tongue wanted to slip out of my mouth. The author is uncomfortable with having two my's in the same sentence. how would we resolve this.

2494958 Thank you. I agree with you. Your sentence reads better than the one I posted.

Even after I kicked her in her torso, she didn’t move off of me.

Even after I kicked her in the torso, she didn’t move off of me.
Readers will understand that she didn't kick herself or someone else in the torso.

Don't know if that's relevant to the exact situation you're in, but if it isn't, you could let me fix the exact quote you're struggling with.
