Audio Readings Ahoy! And a Big Thank You to the One Who Made 'Em Happen! · 12:41pm November 14th

Blog Number 65: The Sounds of Generosity Edition

This week, a rather generous fellow named Quinch has given me something I haven't had in six years and ten months: an audio reading of my written work. It is amazing. :raritystarry:

What could be better than that? Well, how about two audio readings of my written work! :pinkiehappy: Double amazing! :raritystarry::raritystarry:

National Pony Writing Month, 2019 Iteration · 10:09am November 4th

Blog Number 64: Wan Edition

In deference to tradition, I'm participating in the NaPoWriMo once more. In deference to my being somewhat fed up and barely motivated, I'm only doing a modest 10,000 words. After that, I might need a break.

Blog Number 63: Approaching Critical Point Edition

What the hell am I missing? There must be some secret, some obvious detail I've overlooked, something that keeps other people writing and soaring while I'm stuck here surrounded by ideas that just won't get off the ground. What!? I am beyond frustrated at this point.

Is A Writer A Philosopher Too? · 11:50pm October 17th

Blog Number 62: The Writer's Umbrella and What It Covers Edition

When you write, you're writing about humans. When you write, you're making the reader ask a question about what it means to be human. The best writers are the ones who make their readers ask the most insightful, meaningful questions.

You're a Writer: What's Your Weapon Status? · 8:54pm October 10th

Blog Number 61: The Tools (and Weapons) a Writer Wields Edition

“So to writers I say, you're going to have to read a lot… So many books that you're going to overflow. You've got to hook into the popular culture… You've got to keep your mind open to all sorts of influences. You've got to sit down for hours at a time in front of the computer. And you must make grammar, punctuation and spelling a part of your life.

Blog Title Loophole Abuse. Also, How I Learned to Stop Picking-'n'-Mixing and Just Watch "Equestria Girls" Already · 2:16pm October 1st

Blog Number 60: Um, Uh, Ah, Er Edition

I could say something smart-alec about the last post being titled the "Penultimate" Post and marvel at how clever I am at loopholing around it, but frankly I'm not that smart and I can't be bothered. Last post was retroactively wrong. That's all there is to it.

Anyway, on to the status report:


Good grief, I haven't resorted to a contents page in a while. As usual, skip to whatever you're interested in.

Blog Number 59: Long Overdue for Retirement

Progress Report: Bugger all.

Sorry, but this whole thing's just not cutting the mustard. Once I take care of one last job, I'm on my way out.

It's worse than "bugger all", in fact. Nothing's more depressing than looking back a couple of years and realizing you're struggling with the same problems now that you struggled with then. If anything, they seem to have gotten worse.

Blog Number 57: Mission Statement Edition

After one hundred stories and one million words, it's probably time you learned where I'm going with all this fanfic-ing. Short answer: via a gradual course on novel-writing to 10,000,000 words in the bank. Assuming I don't die or go insane first.


See, here's the plan at the moment:

Why I Don't Participate More Often In The Fandom, Yet Still Want To Keep Writing Fanfics · 8:45pm June 20th

Blog Number 56: "Here I Stand" Edition

Not much to report at the moment on my side. Or rather there's a lot of stuff to report, but most of it is so idiosyncratic and esoteric that I doubt anyone but me's interested. Pony-wise, however, 'cause we can agree we all like ponies here, right...?

All right. Where am I pony-wise, you may ask?
