Hello all and welcome to the wrap-up for the week ending 2/3/18!
When did it become March?! I am always amazed by how quickly time goes when you’re constantly doing things every day. Have everyone’s years been okay so far? Are still keeping up with our resolutions? For TaleInferno, this year has been fantastic. There have been some uneasy moments with technical difficulties and errors popping up at inconvenient times. Nonetheless, we saw over 600 views over one week in February, which is absolutely brilliant! Let’s see if we can break that record this month.
In other news, the Adelaide Writer’s Week started yesterday. I will be there on Sunday listening in to some authors talk about their writing and maybe asking some questions (I’m a curious human-being, so it’s likely). I’ll write a blog post about it for next week and share what I learn. I love going to writer-focussed events, mostly because it motivates me to keep writing. Being around people who have similar interests and passions is always a fantastic experience. Maybe I’ll get that book I’ve been planning started!
Anyway, let’s get into this wrap-up!
Bitter Fruits by Alice Clark-Platts was reviews, which you can read here. A fantastic crime fiction story, so you should give it a read!
Before this wrap-up, I posted a blog that listed my top 5 most influential books. It was inspired by World Book Day, which was held on 1 March. If you’re looking at learning a bit more about me and the books that have touched my life, go have a read of it here.
Finding Nevo by Nevo Zisin.
This has been a very fascinating story so far. I have already been educated by a lot of areas in life that I had not previously known about, so I’m interested to see how it continues.

Achievements of the week
Things haven’t gone as smoothly as I would have liked this week. Life is always unpredictable and we learn new things every day. I’d say I’ve learnt a lot about myself and my capabilities this week and how realistic I have to be about the plans I make. Nonetheless, I was able to post a few things and I successfully got through both uni and work, so if those aren’t achievements I don’t know what is!
Quotation of the week
‘Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning’
--Albert Einstein (found in Calling Major Tom by David M Barnett)
And that’s it for the week. I have a busy weekend coming up but I’m excited about it. Saturday will be the day I will be focussing solely on my studies to ensure I’m on top of everything since I don’t have a lot of time during the week to do so. As previously mentioned, Sunday will have me at the Writer’s Week. Since I am aware of the amount of time I have during the working week, I might also start delegating Sunday’s to writing up content for the week. Now go out there and ignite the story!
