Hello all and welcome to the weekly update for the week of 18/9/17!
It is the first week of the university break and it's time to start pumping out the content... hopefully. I hope that during the next two weeks I'll have more time to focus on producing more reviews and other fun blog posts. However, this break is also meant to be used to plan and start producing some of the major assignments for this semester. So, we shall see how much I can actually do.
This week has started off with a cold and wet day. It was also a day that I did the filming for my journalism course (finally!). It is a lot of fun to use the big, expensive cameras and to go out and do what television journalists do. There is a lot more in the setting up process than I first expected and I haven't broken anything or had any technical difficulties... yet. It has also given me some inspiration for future content, which involves a lot of planning so it will likely be something I will do later this year.
Now let's get into this update!
Coming at you on Tuesday night is the review on The Fellowship of the Ring in The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien. Then on Thursday the review on the second volume, The Two Towers, will be out!
On Wednesday, I plan on putting up a blog post detailing the basics in journalism since I have mentioned it quite often in these updates and wrap-ups. My passions lie within creative/professional writing and linguistics, and the journalism aspect of my course has widened my understanding on many areas of life and professional work. I'm hoping this blog post will interest anyone who is considering pursuing journalism or wants to know more about it.

Achievements for the week
There is a lot planned for the website this week, so I'm hoping I can achieve all of it. On top of this, however, I have a lot of planning of assignments to do. There are also a few more days of filming. Altogether, there is going to be a lot happening both on this blog and away from it, and I'm hoping I have a long list of achievements by the end of this week!
And that's it for the weekly update. This week and the next should be full of content and a lot of fun, so make sure to keep checking up to see what's happening and follow TaleInferno on social media for more!
