Writer's Block

Delays, delays, blah blah blah. Here, have a delightfully morbid MSPaint drawing I whipped up in five minutes.

If the the image is too ambiguously crappy to decipher, that's me getting crushed with my legs sticking out. You know, for comedy!

This also applies to those who draw. XI

Oh hello there! Welcome to my gallery! :wave:

Indeed, art blocks of all forms are infuriating. Especially when your financial institution decides to screw you forever. :|

Nice to meet you -- hope you stick around! :D

I hope you feel better. Your MLPxSonic story caught my interest so long ago. I really loved it.

Thanks. While ALL of my writing efforts had been put on the backburner for the last two years, StH: Flames of Equestria had much of the wind taken out of it when Equestria Daily first rejected it.

I do intend to start it back up though... *sigh* SOMEDAY.

Check out some of my other fics in the mean time, if you haven't already.

I know this feeling all too well. When I'm not 100% sure where to go with a story, I get writer's-blocked even when I'm NOT busy, to say nothing of when I have other things to do. And sometimes I get stuck on little things, like single lines of dialogue. I haven't written in a very productive manner in... months, probably... although I had an idea for a fanfic recently that I might be able to pull together a bit more quickly. But I'm really excited to see more TotOR, and I hope you can get things sorted out soon.

Lol, first time I see something of yours in the new deviations section and I get this. :P

Sorry to hear that though. My advice is that when I get the block myself, I tend to go back to the same works that inspired me to write in the first place - my favorite games, movies, fanfic, etc. So perhaps you can try going back to what gave you that spark all the way back in January 2010.

Just what I can suggest. Hope it helps!

Yeah, I knew I'd be teasing people when I posted this... of course, a few weeks later, you all found out WHY I had posted this. :|

2 years worth of writer's block.. maybe re-read your story to get back in the swing of things?
Pyre-Vulpimorph's avatar
I have been. It's amazing how much I was able to write back then, and how much I improved in a relatively short amount of time. The comments are always inspiring. :blushes:

Chapter 37 is about 85% done, really. It's just been a major chore this past month.

What delays then? Is your hand acting up again? Or your work?
Pyre-Vulpimorph's avatar
I've just been really busy this past month. Dragging, really. My hand is OK, for the most part, but my job deals with a lot of manual labor and heavy lifting, and I have to practically crawl into bed each night.

Chapter 37 is like... 85% done, though. Honestly.

Well, I'm looking forward. Just get well, k?
