My apologies for the lack of posts lately!
This semester is an absolute nightmare in terms of study load, but I’m going to try to catch up with your messages (and other projects) as soon as I can.
Bear with me, people!
(I hope you can all follow the argument in that last post, because my Shakespeare class and I geeked out about this so hard for over an hour and we still couldn’t come at a unanimous conclusion.)
First, a big thank you to everyone who sent me messages of condolences and IT advice when they saw the picture of my broken laptop!
I’m pretty sure the computer itself is fine and only the sceen needs to be fixed (thank God), but it will take some time for me to find an affordable solution to this problem, so there probably won’t be a lot of blogging until I figure it out.
I have dug up an old computer to use for now, but it is painfully slow and struggles with how image-heavy Tumblr is.
Bear with me, everyone.
Since the study advice posts are so popular, I thought I’d give you all the opportunity to send in your requests for future posts. Leave a reply below or send me an ask!
What are you struggling with in school/university? What are some questions you would like me to answer?
The title of my autobiography will be Analysis Paralysis: Which of the 400+ Books I Own Do I Want To Read Next (A Blogger’s Tale).
I just got an e-mail from my Shakespeare professor and the trip to London and Stratford-Upon-Avon is in the same week as the Welcome To Night Vale live show I have tickets to.
Finally I can reveal the project I’ve been working on these last couple of months. My darling followers, I am so proud to present to you:
What is it?
It is a website where I will post book reviews, study advice, reading lists, and longer articles on whatever strikes my fancy. I’m still transferring material from The Library and Step On It! to this new website, so some posts may look familiar, but from now on this is where I will post this kind of material.
I am also working on a glossary so that if you come across an author or literary term you don’t know, you can immediately click on a link and get a brief overview.
But what about the-library-and-step-on-it?
The Library and Step On It! will still exist in its current form and I will keep posting quotes, links to articles, and Photoshop creations here. However, the longer text posts will be put up on The Narratologist. I will post a link on The Library and Step On It! as well so you can keep track of new material. The same goes for my Goodreads account: it will still exist and I will still use it, but I will now start posting links to the website. If you only want to get the links to new Narratologist posts without all the extra stuff, you can follow the Narratologist Tumblr.
One more thing!
You can also follow The Narratologist on Facebook! The page will be updated whenever there is a new post or when I see a picture/video/link that I like and want to share with you, and you can also ask me your questions there.
I am very, very excited about this project and I would never have had the courage to create something like this if it hadn’t been for the support of the followers of The Library and Step On It. Your questions, discussions, and words of encouragement over the years have meant the world to me, so from the bottom of my heart: thank you.
If you have any questions/comments/suggestions for any of these platforms, please let me know. This is for you.
Special thanks to:
Sanne van Let, the social media guru, IT wizard, and all-around clever person who somehow managed to distill my disconnected thoughts (“something about books”) into a coherent concept.
Sarah Meers for the header design and her encyclopaedic knowledge of fonts and icons.
One last time!
I promise I’ll stop spamming you with this, I’m just trying to make sure that everyone has seen it.
Also, make sure that you liked the Facebook page, because I’m putting up some fun stuff on there!
