I like writing stories. I really do, but I have this bad habit of not ever getting around to actually writing. As a result, the few stories I posted on a site 9 or so years ago are STILL unfinished, though I sometimes update them once a year...  :facehoof:

My question to any other writers out there, how do you get yourselves on a good writing schedule? I have tons of ideas just floating around up there, and can get them down into coherent stories and whatnot when I apply myself, but just end up slowing to a stop after a short time. (It's gotten bad enough that I don't get but a few paragraphs down before doing other stuff.) I don't have writer's block, I just can't be bothered to sit down and write them, no matter how much I'm interested in doing so.

Hey y'all, just finished uploading an extended version of one of the songs (Character select/Pony Creation) from the game onto my YouTube channel. I am still working on looping the others, but my hope is that I'll have everything looped and uploaded by Wednesday. You should be able to listen via the following link, since the YouTube button keeps saying "Invalid YouTube Link" for some reason... Hope you enjoy!

Update #4: I've got a mere 2 days left on my recording/editing software, but I'm definitely going to finish with all of these songs one way or another. I got one more uploaded today, the oh so calm music that plays in ponydale at night!

Same deal as before, listen via the following links since the YouTube button claims that all of the links are apparently invalid (though my friends have reported to me that they bring you to the right place), or check out my channel for the playlist that will contain all of them. Enjoy!

Hello, I am DarkSpectre.

I am 21 years old, and was born, raised, and still live in Texas. Naturally, given my birthplace, my first language is English, though I am capable of speaking and understanding limited Spanish, know how to count from one to ten in Japanese along with other random words gleaned from watching anime and reading manga, and can, through a bit less than a year of self-study, speak and understand some Dutch. I am a strong introvert, and have lots of time to think and reflect. As such, I am a "closet brony", as I am fairly certain of the way my family and friends would take such news. In a way, I hope I'm wrong about that so that I can watch the show without looking over my shoulder all of the time.

I greatly enjoy practicing Parkour with my team in my free time, as well as honing my real life stealth skills, playing video games, reading manga, watching anime, and hanging out with my limited number of friends when I'm not working as a Lifeguard. When I'm not doing any of those things, I am running a MLP themed minecraft server with my friend WizzlePiff. While I'm fairly inexperienced at role-play, it has definitely grown on me and has become something that I sort of like to do when I can. I'm also told that I'm not too shabby of a writer, though I tend to have doubts in my abilities. I suffer from writers block at least 70% of the time, but I do enjoy writing very much.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, and I will answer them to the best of my ability.

Edit: Am now of the drinking age in America, so updated that.
