Merely a Mare is complete. For awhile, I didn't know if I was ever going to be able to say that, but I finally got it done. 50k words. Crazy. Thanks for all the views and comments on it, and I'm glad so many of you seemed to enjoy it.
Anyway, now that that is behind me, what's next? I'll mostly be splitting my attention between U-Harmony and the initial planning, brainstorming, and outline for my next really long fic. My intention is to get relatively detailed outlines done for the whole fic before I start fleshing out individual chapters, so that the whole fic flows together more smoothly than Merely a Mare did. I'm broadening my horizons by trying my hand at something that doesn't involve shipping: a long Lovecraft-inspired dark adventure fic featuring the Mane 6 and a certain heroic pegasus. The tentative title for the project is 'Daring Do and the Journey to the Center of Equestria'.
