Never liked reading incomplete stories, so you won't find any here. Daily updates or the whole story at once.

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

Editing and proofreading requests are now handled through my Patreon page.

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

All hail the messiah of clop! --Mephiles

2450290 I see, well thanks for sharing.

Depends on the story, really. Sometimes I have a hugely detailed plan, sometimes barely anything, and I just roll with it. Whichever I think the story would work best with. Then just sit down and write for a few hours at a time until it's done. If I care a lot about the story, it'll get subjected to my editing checklist and get dozens of proofreading passes, plus prereaders... If I don't care a lot about the story, it gets one proofreading pass.

But I don't really have a set method, no real routine or anything. Just sit down and bang it out.

2450121 I think it's a combination of answers 3 and 4.

2449853
Well, there's a lot that 'how' could mean...

Physically? On what kind of schedule? How do I plan them? How do I actually do the writing? Editing?

What specifically do you want to know?

2446937 I'm not sure if anyone has asked you this, so forgive me if I repeat the question; how do you write your stories?

Congratulations! You have been selected for the honourary honour of being booped by the Boop Wizard of the Boop Army of boops, boop boop.

Also, loving 4000 year old virgin, and I'm excited to see where it goes.

Heh, because quite a few seem to be not loving it. So it goes. I'm not terribly concerned about that -- it is what it is.

2443038

My bad :3 not gonna lie, I didn't get much sleep and your follower count blurred in my memory with another's. Knew it was huge though. Also didn't look at the timestamps.

I just hate when people make a poisonous atmosphere because they can. This is the one fandom where that's not supposed to happen.

Also, loving 4000 year old virgin, and I'm excited to see where it goes. You're a great writer, and I've seen some writers chased off because of people who like to watch the world burn. After 60+ stories I doubt that's likely, that doesn't mean I can't give some encouragement anyway :)

2442887
Don't worry about him. ^.^ I can take care of myself.

Heh, and I don't have 6000 followers! Only somewhere between 2000 and 4000, depending on how many follow both me and my evil twin.

2412376

Lonely people with 6000 followers ready to back him up. What do you have Mazey boy, 4? Going to someone else's page to taunt them is a way to make sure your opposition is limited. You are the only insecure one here. The only reason safe spaces exist is because of people like you that use their inalienable right to speech only to drag others down. I pitty you. I really do. I'm not pro-safespaces, I'm just anti-stupid.

2434126
Yes.
Politics always matter.

2412376

Do politics really matter on a site about god damned cartoon horses?!

2416713
Yeah, that's what happens when you piss off the fascists, I suppose.

Ok so I just came here through a random story then I just start reading what people said cause I'm a curious idiot and all I find is people insulting each other for what appears to be no good reason

>> 2412376
I'm against fascism, but I don't associate with antifa.

...And there you go, just repeating the same things I said. Again.
You know what? I'm tired of talking to you, so I'm not going to make it easy. No more reply notifications for you.
If you want to keep this pitiful nagging up, you're going to have to work for it.

2412186 Lonely people like you are literally subhuman. I think it's time to end this.
The alt-right "safe space" is open to new members.
Antifa group? Closed.
I think you should tread carefully now that I dominated you. Lonely "people" tend to get hurt.

2411756

I can see you're afraid of me saying that. Well, I won't.

What I will say, however, is "the real pathetic subhuman is you

:facehoof:
"I won't say that" -- proceeds to say exactly that in the very next sentence.

You just can't help yourself, can you?

Again, I ask, if I'm so subhuman, why are you here? What are you getting out of this? Do you ... think you're trolling me? Is it some sort of weak-ass revenge for posting on your Nazi fetish group? Or are you actually dumb enough to believe the things you're saying? Maybe you're just so lonely that you're desperate to talk to someone who hasn't blocked you...

2411660 I can see you're afraid of me saying that. Well, I won't.
What I will say, however, is "the real pathetic subhuman is you, considering that you think that what offends you will offend everyone else." Learn to respect your superiors.

Oh, and you can't cry "double standards!!!1" when you're the one who has a very wishy washy outlook on whether emotions are good or vile. If you don't grow some balls, I win.

2411640

I get to do that, while you don't.

I get the feeling that you think this applies to every possible response in an argument.
Really, what do you think this is accomplishing? You're pathetic.

(In before "No, you're pathetic!")
