 ‹ 1 min read

October 2014. A friend of mine, a stereotypical big, strong black guy – basically the last person you’d suspect of being a brony – wanted to talk to me, so he came by. With him was an Applejack plushie. I was confused. My Little Pony was a kid’s show. I’d never heard of a brony…

I have a problem. I come up with these stories in my head, and start writing them. I usually get two short chapters in before I lose the motivation to continue. I don’t know why this is. My first Anon story did pretty well. I just don’t have the motivation to continue it. I’m gonna…
