"Beneath the Canon You Settle For" will be cancelled. · 8:49pm Jun 22nd, 2017

Beneath the Canon You Settle For will be cancelled. After review of its elements and planning, it has become clear that the planning simply was not up to par and was bound to diminish the story's quality down the road. Although the timing appears inconvenient, it is more important that the readers experience a story that would not insult them for investing their time and empathy. And it would be wrong to let a tribute to Sam Lake's writing style devolve into an incoherent mess.

New story and new resolution · 10:36pm Jan 3rd, 2016

The last year has been a struggle to write for. Not until I played Fallout 2 did I feel that I had a solution to the impasse. Now I am writing a side story to Fallout: Equestria as a means of getting back into a productive mindset. My other story, "Beneath the Canon We Settle For," shall receive the next chapter it has been deprived of for so long in the coming month.

Hello to whoever may read this!

The Amateur is devoted to exploring the medium afforded by My Little Pony fanfiction and pushing all its elements to their breaking points. However, a long time has passed between the recent chapter and the last one-- 4 months! Such a gap without a compelling reason why should fall squarely on the wings of the writer.

How music serves my writing. · 1:52am Feb 12th, 2015

Good day to anyone who may read this!

Today's topic will be about music-- how it impacts writing for me and serves as a catalyst for new ideas. These songs, keep in mind, are not my particular favorites but rather pieces that have influenced the way my story, Beneath the Canon You Settle For, is written.
