It is with a heavy heart, that I have to inform you that I’ve stepped away from Inveterate Media Junkies. This that frequent the site most likely noticed I subtly said goodbye on my last Capsule Review a few weeks ago. In fact, the reasons that I’ve stepped down are the same that have kept me from posting this sooner.
Last semester, when I was doing my work for MFA program, weekly Fall TV premiere reviews, and weekly comic reviews, I realized that amount time needed and the amount of time in a day never evened out. Somehow, I pulled through. It also helped that the television networks seemed to all shorten there premiere schedules so it really only ended up being a hectic two weeks that wasn’t near a school deadline. But it was enough that I realized that I needed to get a handle on my if I was going to do this again.
Get the rest of the scoop after the break
First, credit for the title belongs to Ubisoft and the team behind Assassin’s Creed 2.
The reason for the title is because after I returned from my residency at Seton Hill University, I came down with one of the worst colds I’ve had in a while. I’m still recovering, but I’m no longer feel like Clive Barker wrote the latest Hellraiser story in my throat or coughing so hard I could type with my forehead.
But that means I’m behind on everything. There are new things I want to tell you about and update things that were already planned.
- I will be starting a new feature on my Facebook Fan Page: Real Scrolls V: Skyrim. I will be writing weekly entries about a Skyrim character, but it won’t be in the typical high fantasy voice. I’m going to have some fun with the character’s voice, but it will depend on what kind of character I’ll be playing. All this week on my Page, I’ll have polls so You can decide the character. So come by, Like my Page, and join in something that I’m sure will be a fun time.
- I know I will be at three events this year: In Your Write Mind (June), Necon 33 (July), and Anthology 2013 (November). I will be updating my Appearances page with all the details as I get them. I may be presenting at IYWM and I may be on panels at Anthology again. So make sure you keep an eye out on any news. Who knows, I might be part of a signing or book release too. The year is still young.
- Many things have delayed the start Doctor Who Anniversary posts on my Screen Burn™ column at Inveterate Media Junkies. I wanted to have the First Doctor post up by the end of the January, unfortunately the cold put the kibosh on that. But it is coming and starting next Monday (February 4th) I will be my tweeting of the Second Doctor’s episodes on my Screen Burn™ Twitter account (@ScreenBurnIMJ). If you are a Doctor Who fan, make sure to follow me there for a fun time and to know first any news about the first post.
That’s it for now. But before you go, enjoy this awesome song and incredibly goofy video.
