It may be a tad early for my annual R&P, but I like to get it out of the way before everybody else starts their own laments – and laments will come!
There’s no nice way to say it. The clusterfuck of our Lord 2020 had been a low-blow chapter-wise:
- Only two new parts of Pony Boot Camp (sorry for that!), and Chapter VI of Æquinoctium (not sorry for that!)
Looking at the numbers for complete stories, we find ourselves with: Continue reading
Greetings, fellow survivors of 2019!
With Twenty-twenty upon us, things again are bound to get a bit nostalgic. And so, as always, let us have a look at almost-last year’s loot:

Not an impressively high number as such, but I’m content as this quartette not only closed the Gymkhana story arc, but also opened a worthy follow-up. Continue reading
I am aware that the last story (or in this case, chapter) took its sweet time to find its way to the World Wide Web. Therefore I’m eager to re-establish a certain flow in my postings. I cannot promise to deliver a new story/part this month, but there is a so far 2,000 words strong one in the pipeline. I can already tell, though, that this is going to be another biggie; no way I am able to stay below 10,000 words. Perhaps I will postpone this longer narration in favour of a short story I just recently got inspired to.
Whatever it will be in the end: no worries!

I am saddened that I didn’t come up with anything for Christmas (especially anything with ponies). My writing has been delayed and derailed to much higher degrees than I had experienced in the past. It is this that keeps me away from making any far-reaching prophecies. Continue reading
Actually, this is the 101st post I’ve created on this site. The 100th was The Writer, kind of fitting. Now, 100 posts in almost five years doesn’t sound much, but the overwhelming majority of them are short stories or story chapters, a fact which puts the numbers in perspective.
And I already know how to celebrate this milestone — with post no. 102, of course!
