Ahhhhh fanart~ · 10:52pm Aug 15th, 2013

Not a few days have passed before someone gifted me with more Composure fanart!


Needless to say I was stoked to see it. I liked writing this part, so I'm glad this moment struck a chord. Also, the globe is awesome, it really captures what I was going for.

Catalyst · 7:01pm Aug 11th, 2013

Well, that took a year and change.

But, it's here now. Composure, Chapter 7 - Catalyst.

The name is important. Before this chapter, my plans for the story were vast -- far, far too vast for me to ever feasibly complete. A writer needs proper scope, and to know what needs to be said to tell the story. Most of my plans? It would have just been drawing things out. This, I feel, is a truer direction. Cutting to the heart of things with no delay.

Update on the chapter. Minor delays - my proofreaders made some good suggestions I'm taking on board.

Composure 7 should be out between Saturday evening to Monday.

Thank you for your patience. · 9:17pm Aug 5th, 2013

The draft of Composure, Chapter 7, is complete.

I'll be tidying it up and running it past my prereaders and editors. My tentative e.t.a. is Saturday 10th August.

This year has been immensely difficult for me, so I thank you all for your patience and understanding.

All the best, and I'll see you on Saturday.
--Varanus

P.S.: If you've forgotten what's happened in the story, now would be a great time to reread it ;)

If you're going to do the wrong things, do them right.

With regards to my computer problems... · 6:18pm Jan 18th, 2013

Tentatively resolved, though it required a full system reinstall. I also discovered that the last computer repair place I went to in order to fix a fried HDD thought it'd be clever to give me a 360GB one in lieu of my dear departed 500GB one. Plus they installed Windows 7 32-bit instead of 64.

Moral of the story, be vigilant, and keep your receipts! And make friends with computer programmers.

Varapproved: Celestia and Luna's Completely Average Day · 2:15pm Dec 11th, 2012

Heya guys.

So, news: Recently ran into computer troubles, so I'm down to pen and paper for writing Composure for the time being (thank my android for this blogpost!) Still, things are going well, finally, and I've had some good hard rethinking about the direction of everything. Can't say much more at this point, but stay tuned~

Varapproved: Whom the Princesses Would Destroy... · 10:58pm Oct 10th, 2012

A good friend of mine, the venerable GhostOfHeraclitus has graced fimfiction with his first story, a Pratchett-esque tale of laughter, perseverance, friendship and the magic of bureaucracy![1]

Whom the Princesses Would Destroy - Go read it. It's gold.

(As for Composure, work has resumed. Stay tuned!)

Renewed Priorities · 12:53pm Jul 30th, 2012

My money situation is tight and deadlines loom for the college catch-up game I've been dealing with. College and funding, those are my sole priorities right now.

So, I will not be doing any serious work on Composure for a few weeks. It's not a hiatus exactly, but know that my energy is focused elsewhere.

Duty calls, and I must answer.
