A good story isn't measured by how long it is, but by how long it stays with you.  (Now writing commissions for charity. PM me for details!)

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

I'm Curious...

How many of you actually come here?

Reading Rainbow's "One Full Day" Hardcopy Edition!

Hey, guys!

Do you all remember my story Reading Rainbow?  Do you remember the story within the story that Rainbow Dash read to Twilight while laid up in the hospital?  Did you ever want to hold and read that poem in your very own hands with your very own eyes?

Well, now you can!

I have fleshed out plans for a fully illustrated hardcopy version of Reading Rainbow’s “One Full Day” poem.  It will feature approximately seventy-six—yes, seventy-six—pages of illustrations by the amazingly talented Ruirik.  They will accompany a fully updated, better-flowing rework of the poem’s phrasing and meter.

How much is it?  Well, isn’t that the ever-burning question!  Prices will depend on how many people are interested, but guidelines are as follows (before shipping costs):

60-99 books ordered: $30/book

100-199 books ordered: $25/book

200-299 books ordered: $20/book        

300+ books ordered (stretch goal!): $15/book

Yes, you read those prices right.  Only $15-$30 for seventy-six pages worth of pony.  That’s your standard price range for one standard picture by your standard pony artist.  That's a steal!!!  I am also considering allowing a few slots for OC background features for those who want to put in a little extra.  Current sizing is planned to be 7"x9".

Comment below or send a PM/telegram/instagram/carrier pigeon/smoke signal my way if you are interested in a copy.  Now, I ask of you: go spread the word, and let’s make this a thing!

Onward and Upward!

Hey, guys.

So, it's been a while since I've blogged anything. There's a myriad of reasons, ranging from work and wonky night shifts, to a few new irl friends, to Overwatch/FF14, to buying my first house that I'm now all settled into. But really, that'd only be a half truth.

You see, my magnum opus-to-be Into the Dark is complete and simply awaiting finishing touches and editing before post, but it's been that way for a while now. For the life of me, I just can't bring myself to work on it, despite how much I love the story and want to share it with all of you--because finishing the story would mean seeing it come to an end, and quite frankly, I can't see anything beyond it.

All of my stories are written. All the things I've wanted to say I have. I have no more words of my own that fill me with a passion worth putting to paper. It's a prospect that leaves me utterly petrified to consider, being done with this site.

I don’t want to be done… I love this site--all it's wonders, all you people that have come to love my words, and yes even the drama and weird shit that ends up in the feature box that all I can do is shake my head, sigh, and wonder why the hell people actually read that shit. I've put too much of myself into this community to simply pack up and walk out. I can't do it. This place, all of you, means too much to me.

But like I've said, I have no more words of my own. I don’t know what to write. But I think there might be something I can still do yet to keep that fire burning.

First, I've started doodling for that One Full Day poem illustration. I know, finally, right? I suck major horsecock at drawing, but every sketch is another closer to decent work.

Second, I've been flirting with the idea of writing commissions.

I've no need for money, as I'm blessed with a steady and stable well-paying job, and I have no intention of changing that now. But perhaps we could do a little good with this arrangement: I'll follow the precedent recently set by Cynewulf and say 5$/1000 words of prose (poetry I'm also willing to do, but prices will be decided case by case). You pay part up front, I start writing. When I'm almost done, we finish the transaction and I complete the story. All proceeds will be donated to the Hasbro Children's Hospital. It's only fitting.

Fir how we'll go about writing this, you give me the characters, genre, a synopsis, and we'll shoot ideas back and forth until we reach a consensus on the happenings of the fic.

As standard fare, I reserve the right to cancel and refund any story that gets away from me, to reject any story idea that I don’t like, etc., to post the story on my account with idea credit to the commissioner, and any other legal shenanigans that comes with this shtick. Don’t forget, I write at my own pace, and I hope my writing this far has shown that it's worth the wait.

I'll open three commission slots for now and keep that updated as we go. As preferences go, I tend to write Dark/Tragedy/Comedy, so those are more likely to get my pick among the litter; and while it has no bearing on what ill write, Luna is my favorite character.

As always, Onward and Upward!

I actually have the next chapter drafted. Sorry for the poor adherence to any sort of schedule... Been busy with life and writing just isn't quite the engaging thing it once was. Lots of games distracting me, too, what with Dark Souls and No Man's Sky and many more.

Anyway, as far as writing is concerned, I'm focusing on finishing up Into the Dark first and then ill be back to Flock Together. I won't leave that story incomplete. Don't worry!

#63 · 31w, 6d ago · · ·

Corejo, are you ever going to finish the story Flock Together?

The ones you already have on your RiL shelf, silly!

So what should I read of yours next then? :trixieshiftright:
