I'd call myself a fanfic writer, if I wasn't too busy horsing around!

Season 5 Retrospective · 12:53am Jan 8th, 2016

Right, so it's been a month since I last checked in, and at that time I said I'd write a couple blog posts. Well, the holiday season came at me like a ton of bricks, what with its real-life obligations and so forth. I wish I had been able to put some time aside for writing, but I'm honestly pretty bad about that. But that's all over and I have more free time than usual. So, like I said last time, I had some thoughts about Season 5, specifically everything after "The Lost Treasure of

Update: All the Things · 2:35am Dec 7th, 2015

Hello. It's been a while. Too long, in fact. I've had some long pauses between my stories, or any other kind of artistic endeavors I've gone on. It's a problem. I want to get back into writing, and I want to finish up this monster of a story that's just become huge and crazy and equal parts fun and frustrating, for myself and for anybody that's been waiting. I like to pretend I'm some kind of big-shot when I give updates on what I'm doing and how I'm doing it, which is admittedly

WTG Week 3 / "The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone" · 9:30pm May 24th, 2015

Okay, I'm more than aware I'm a small fry on FimFiction with basically zero notoriety or fame (E-fame? Internet illustriousness?), but I said I'd write something for the Writer's Training Grounds for Week 3, and I didn't. And it's worth mentioning why, at least. I could blame a bunch of stuff for preventing me -- I had a final, a job interview, my workplace is undergoing structural changes, one night I had a splitting headache -- but those are excuses. Factors? Yes. The cause? No. I just had

Double Feature: "Just an Accident" Fic / "Make New Friends" Episode Follow-up! · 12:02am May 18th, 2015

So to continue my tradition and bad habit of writing more blog posts than stories, but also to somehow cut down on the number of posts I make, I'd like to talk about both my new story for EQD's Writer's Training Grounds, Just an Accident, as well as Saturday's episode, Make New Friends but Keep Discord!

Whatcha gonna do, brony, when the WTG gallops wild on you? · 6:47am May 9th, 2015

Hello there, pony peoples! It's not very late here in Southern California, but I'm incredibly wiped like you wouldn't believe. Finals are coming up, I'm dealing with crazy changes at work that are much too long to get into, and three days ago I saw the newest edition of the Writer's Training Grounds on EQD. For the past, oh man, I don't know, three years I've missed out on this sort of thing because

Double Feature: I Like Turtles & Appleloosa 911 · 12:29am May 3rd, 2015

First things first: new chapter goes up most likely sometime tomorrow. My semester is ending soon and some things are happening at work, so life is just really getting in the way for me. Same goes for my proofreader, he's got his own stuff to handle.

Bloomception · 10:43pm Apr 19th, 2015

Again my titles ain't the greatest, but at least I'm getting to this sooner than usual! Let's talk about the latest episode, Bloom and Gloom. As usual there's things I dig about it, and things I don't, but overall I think this was a good one. And although I didn't say it the last couple of times, there's going to be spoilers here, so read at your discretion.

Sweet Home Castle-bana · 1:28am Apr 18th, 2015

So as something of a personal writing exercise, I'm gonna continue writing about Season 5 in these blogs! Again I'm nearly a week late to the metaphorical party and my title's a pile of horseapples, but whatever!

SWEET CELESTIA SEASON 5 AAAAH · 6:35am Apr 10th, 2015

Okay, so I'm basically a week behind in saying anything about this, even though I saw the episode on the day it aired. I've had a weird week with work and returning to college after spring break. You could say it's a... long story? AH-HAHAHAHAHA please don't kill me. By this point of course, just about everything seems to have already been said about the premiere two-parter. I'm sure what I'm about to write will sound like echoes of other people's thoughts, but hey,

Announcements... and something special! · 7:48pm Jan 31st, 2015

Hey! I'd like to start off with apologizing for how late this chapter was. I tend to second-guess myself all the time, and it didn't help that many things had to happen at this point in the story. On top of that, I ended one college semester, then was caught up in the holidays, and I've just started yet another semester! So life's pretty busy. But I've got a few announcements in regards to Kickin' Flanks.
