A November to Remember · 11:56am Last Tuesday

:ajsleepy: Well, I didn't reach my November target of 100,000 words...

:ajsmug: ...I smashed right through it and went the extra mile! WOOHOO!

111,581 words


As a result, expect a trifecta of fics over the coming days. I've already submitted the first of the three. The rest just need a little editing work, but are complete and otherwise ready to go! Huzzah!

Blog Number 117: Checkpoint Chokepoint Edition

Impossible Numbers' First Rule of Ironic Performance: "The ambition of a writer increases in inverse proportion to their actual success rate."

Or to put it in less highfalutin': when you start feeling like a failure, you start planning bigger and crazier projects.

Extraordinary Words: The NaPoWriMo That Never Was · 11:35am November 20th

Blog Number 116: Maniacal Milestones Edition

Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in a long time, I find myself in an extraordinary position. Despite having no official NaPoWriMo this year, I may yet actually manage to write, for the first time ever,

100,000 words

in a month. :pinkiegasp:

Jinglemas, Jinglemas, Jinglemas Rock... · 8:12pm November 16th

Blog Number 115: Gifthorse Edition

The past week has been a fine piece of work. Barely seven days after the publication of Heartbreak Hotel, I manage to get out another fic: Still Waters Run Deep.

Fact is I've been on fire lately. It's a real pity I'm not officially on a NaNoWriMo 50k target this year, 'cause I'm leaping and bounding over it. :yay:

I might write some more, actually! :pinkiehappy:

To the Genius Who Downvoted My Last 49 Fics Within the Last Few Hours · 10:24am November 9th

Thank you, my suspiciously anonymous friend, for opening my eyes.

Whatever monstrous grievance I have caused you, well it shines through loud and clear. Here I was, thinking "I'm on a roll, I can do no wrong, soon the entire site will bow down before me and tremble at the mere mention of the name Impossible Numbers!" Clearly, I was an unstoppable monster. Yet equally clearly, this was a monster who needed to be stopped.

As per the saying: If you can't find a happy place, make one.

OK, so let's try this "miscellaneous" blog update once more, and this time mix and match with a smile! :pinkiehappy:

In this phase, let's talk about a series which does "miscellaneous" things: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.

Miscellaneous · 9:10pm November 5th

Blog Number 112: Whatever Edition

I'm noticing more and more that my mood has been fluctuating daily. A terribly low day followed by an enjoyably calming day, for example.

Unimpressed. Is this any way to live, with your emotions playing roulette with your precious time? There's absolutely no good reason for any of these stupid inconsistencies. It's maddening.

Happens even within a day, now. And like I said, for no good reason.

Keeping Tags On 'Em: Character Biases When Writing Fanfiction · 3:37pm October 30th

Blog Number 111: Top 25 Character Tags Edition

How many stories have you written for each character?

For the sake of no headaches, I'm going to confine this to major characters such as the Main Six, the CMC, and the Princesses. FIMFiction has 298 character tags as of this posting*, so don't go expecting an exhaustive search here.

* Excluding Original Character, Self-Insert, Anon (which is frankly nothing but one of the previous two), and Other.

Dinky of the Sisterhooves: From Mere Side Sister to Leader of the Pack · 2:08pm October 23rd

Blog Number 109: A Very Dinky Edition

So how about that Dinky and the Sisterhooves retrospective I considered doing three weeks ago? Let's talk about Best Filly!

Specifically, how I ended up writing anything for her, not just this most recent fic of mine. It's a story that implicates several fics of mine, and has been years in the making.
