That's right, I'm looking for editors to go over chapter 1 of the yet-unreleased "Pinkieviduality".
Yes, finally, after what turns out to be exactly 2 years and one day
since the first draft, then typing up 50+ pages out of chronological order while repeatedly going in and out of "hiatus" on that little side-project, I figured "buck it, I gotta finish up the first chapter and go from there". Basically, I got tired of always telling people that "I'm also working on another story, but I can't show you because I haven't published anything yet."
Obviously, no promises of any schedules whatsoever, my writing speed is too unpredictable for that, sorry.
Especially since "Daring Do and the Secret of the Fourth Wall" is still going, if somewhat sluggishly at the moment. (It's that one blasted scene in chapter 10. -_-;; Not that I haven't gone ahead and written other, later scenes anyway. ^_^; )Editors should...- Help me fix up spelling / grammar / odd phrasing / story-formatting- Look over the narrative for anything that can or should be improvedAnypony up for it?
To recap, "Pinkieviduality", in five words:Mirror-Pinkie joins the circus.
I don't have a catchy "book back-cover text" at the moment, though the general summary is this:
She didn't run. She didn't escape. One of Pinkie's clones simply wandered off, out of town, and stumbled into a traveling circus.
The ponies there had never met the original Pinkie Pie. They treated her like any normal pony.
Well... relatively "normal", anyway.
And thus begins a tale of fun, friendship, and basic lifelessons, such as, but not limited to:
- "Breaking other ponies' stuff is bad"
- "Eating cake that doesn't belong to you is also bad"
- "It's more
fun to share
- "Oh for the love of Celestia, Pinkie, what are you doing in the manticore-cage? ...Again?"
No existential angst or preposterous accusations of "you're just a copy" here, no siree!
A few months later, she returns to Ponyville...
Can the grim conclusion of "Too Many Pinkie Pies" be led towards a happy ending?
