I wouldn’t feel right accepting donations. But that’s very sweet of you to offer. ^_^
(( Slight bad news. The latest update will be delayed because I kind of have a mild case of Bronchitis and need to get better. I have already worked out all the sketches, and here’s part of one of the finished panels. You’ll have to tune in later when I’m not sick to see the rest. ^A^; ))
(( Coming soon, Sweet Tea tells us what happened with Lyra and Bonbon. And then how she got where she is now. ))
((oAo I surprise myself by how dark this ask blog has suddenly become. …Even though I sort of had something like this planned from the beginning.))
((=A= It’s been so long since I had manga studio that I practically had to re-learn how to use it right. …I made some small alterations to Sweet Tea’s color scheme that you likely won’t notice unless you look really closely….actually no it’s pretty obvious. I’ll probably do the same to the other characters. I mean, I may as well.
…Other than that, I will now start work on updates! ….right after I recover from this cold that I caught. =A=;;
Please send in questions. I deleted Sweet Tea’s inbox today.))
…Well honestly there’s not much to tell about that. I’m really just a normal pony. My mom runs her own tea shop and my dad is a weather-science teacher. My little brother Nimbus was born later.
I got my cutiemark fairly early. Thing was that I’d lost my homework, and instead of explaining the truth to my teacher, I wrote an elaborate excuse letter about how Nightmare Moon had tried to gobble me up but instead I threw my homework at her (you know, because I was out of candy) and she got full and left me alone. Of course nopony believed that excuse for a moment, but I guess my writing must have impressed my teacher. She gave me lots of compliments and then pointed out my cutiemark.
I grew up. Went to high school. I was in the same school that my dad taught at, so I really had to watch my step or else I would be in trouble at home too. I met some ponies. I had my first crush and that didn’t turn out that well, as you all know.
Then I graduated and went to Canterlot University for a while. I had lots of really nice professors who taught me all about the classics of literature, and all the ins and outs of writing. But I also took some magic classes (I failed miserably at them ;A; ) and I took a few classes on Equestrian History and Mythology. That’s where I got most of my inspiration for Rain Princess.
After a while, I felt that I’d learned all that I could and I should get started on my magnum opus. So I asked Grandma Chamomille if I could stay with her. I sleep in her upstairs bedroom and repay her by working in her antique shop. Really, she’d probably let me stay here for free, but that wouldn’t be fair to her.
But… now things are complicated.
I will probably have all the programs I need by Monday, so this blog will definitely be rising from it’s long slumber soon. <3
(( XD; I’m very hesitant about that for several reasons. …One is that I’m not sure how quickly I can make my replies if I did them in another program. …But I am certainly considering doing that.))
Well I can’t say I know which I prefer to write more. Descriptions can be easier for me sometimes and it gives me the chance to explore what the characters are thinking and feeling and what their setting looks and feels like. But at the same time, I feel like dialogue moves the story along, so I feel more accomplished when I write good dialogue. But dialogue is also hard to do correctly because people don’t talk in the same way that we write. …Personally, when I write a dialogue scene, I always read it aloud in the character’s voice, just to make sure that it doesn’t sound awkward. ^^
But to answer your question… I think I like writing dialogue better. But both are important.
