Hi all and welcome to the update for the week starting 29/1/18!
With RTX Sydney 2018 on this weekend, I'll be flying out to Sydney on Friday. I have made the decision not to take my laptop with me for a couple of reasons, in which case I will not be able to post content. That means this week is going to be a little bit shorter and the weekly wrap-up will be posted on Thursday rather than Friday. However, I will be on social media for most of the weekend, so make sure to like and follow TaleInferno on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
I am feeling much better compared to when I wrote last week's weekly wrap-up. The stomach bug I had has passed, thankfully. If there's one thing I love equal to reading and writing is eating, and having that taken away from me for a day was very distressing and upsetting. Here's hoping I don't get sick again this weekend (knock on wood!). Speaking of which, I cannot wait for what's in store this weekend. I can predict myself buying a lot of merch, so expect some not-very-model-like pictures on my Instagram! After this weekend, I will have plenty of content to post over the coming weeks, so this is where things will really kick off!
Now let's get into this update!
Hello all and welcome to the wrap-up for the week ending 26/1/18!
Although I didn't post content every day this week I was able to post everything I planned to, so it was still successful! The reason behind there not being content on Thursday was because I fell ill with a bad stomach bug that had me unable to focus on anything but not throwing up. Nonetheless, the review for Thursday was pushed to today, so not all is lost! Anyway, this week in general was a pretty good one. The beginning set it off with the purchase of VIP RTX Sydney tickets, and to be honest I don't think I have come down from that high! I was already set to go before I purchased those tickets but snagging them was fantastic! I've started planning some content around it for a couple of weeks time, so keep an eye out!
Today is Australia Day and I didn't really get up to much. I spent the day resting up since my stomach still felt a bit sensitive, finished reading Bitter Fruits by Alice Clark-Platts and wrote up the review for An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. In saying that, it was still a pretty good day that I will soon finish off by sitting myself in front of the Xbox. All in all, I'd say this week has been a very nice one with lovely weather and good vibes... if you forget the part where I got sick!
Anyway, time to get into this wrap-up!
Hello all and welcome to the update for the week starting 22/1/18!
After last week's successes, I'm please to say that this week will be just as successful (hopefully!). Seeing the improvement in the website stats has really got me motivated to keep providing you all with consistent, exciting and original content for the rest of the year. The support so far has been immense and I really hope this excitement can continue. We're looking at a new post every day again, which is fantastic and I'm super excited to jump right in.
And I have fantastic news! Although it is not story or book related, I have been able to grab some VIP tickets for RTX Sydney 2018. Roosterteeth is a company that has inspired me in so many ways and I am so excited to see them in two weekends time. To have been able to get those tickets is an absolute dream. To meet the people who have inspired me, who have pepped me up on days where I felt down... I cannot find the words to express it.
In light of this, there will be a blog post in the future detailing my time there. Again, I understand it is not story related but they have be a part of my creative writing journey. All will be explained in due time. Will I see any of you there?
Anyway, let's get into this weekly update!
Hello all and welcome to the wrap-up for the week ending 19/1/18!
This is a wrap-up to cover not only this week but the other two wrap-ups I didn't post last year. Too be fair, there isn't much to write for them... but I like my numbers to match! This week has been absolutely fantastic for a multitude of reasons, so I'm hoping this is a good sign for the rest of the year. Not only are the website stats going back to how they were before I redesigned it but they're improving! Thank you so much for the support so far, here's to the rest of the year!
It's been a very warm week here in South Australia (I have never been so happy to work in an air-conditioned office) and although I'm more of a winter person, the sunshine does tend to up my motivation. This is good news for work, this website and all the other hobbies I have. As you would have noticed, content was posted on every day this week, so I'm pretty stoked so far. If all goes to plan, which it should, then content will be posted every day Monday to Friday for the rest of the year.
So, strap yourselves in, this is going to be a fun year. I know I'm excited. Time to ignite the stories in all of us!
Now let's get into this wrap-up.
Hello all and welcome to the update for the week starting 15/1/18!
Happy New Year! Looky here, the website is all redone! Hurray! After months of technical difficulties and YouTube tutorials, I have finally completed the website redesign! As you can see, I now have a separate section for these updates and wrap-ups, plus a separate section for miscellaneous blog posts (some previous links on social media might not work because of the transfer of posts, sorry). This is because of some plans I have for this website in an attempt to make interesting and personal content for you all to enjoy!
As we reached the ending of last year, so many different things were happening. I wanted to do so much and turned myself into a ball of stress. Too many commitments fell on top of each other and I missed out on producing the amazing content I had planned. Never fear, with the new year comes my resolution: to put more time into this blog. So here we are!
With the new website redesign also came the blog post I promised a while ago, which was about the TV Industry Night I was honoured to be a part of, as well as The Lord of the Rings reviews that I had delayed for far too long. Go check them out here, here and here!
Anyway, let's crack into this year and into this update!
