1. Starts out like a fluffy unicorn
2. Turns into a plastic My Little Pony, 1st generation
3. Becomes a standard brown pony – no special powers or pedigree
4. Pony becomes emaciated and neglected
5. Fur falls off and, sprouts wings
6. No remaining muscle tissue, skin is breaking
7. Voila; full grown thestral!
This is the story of my writing.
At least I’m out of the candyfloss I got stuck in some ten years ago. That was even more frustrating!
