My internship at The Hornbook Magazine and The Hornbook Guide is complete! That being said, I learned a lot in terms of the reviewing process and in terms of publishing a magazine, not least of which is the basic how-to-write-a-review. Hopefully I will get to implement that in the future.
Here are my last two blog posts for Out of the Box, The Hornbook’s blog for things they don’t review in the magazine or the guide. One is for a Tangled app because I absolutely love Tangled, and the other is for Rounds: Franklin Frog from Nosy Crow.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have an update on the more stirring questions from my fake annotated bibliography I’m compiling for my thesis research. Basically I am attempting to synthesize all the post-it notes I’ve put in my vampire books the last five months, trying to make sense of my scrawls. You know the notes you write to yourself thinking, “I’ll see this keyword and know what I mean, and I’ll put this page number for reference.” You won’t know what you mean. You won’t at all, and you’ll have to reread books to figure out context. It’s fairly agonizing. I’m maybe 1/3 of the way done realistically and halfway done optimistically. I ordered some more books though so maybe not.
I tried to write a post about it last Wednesday, but then I accidentally deleted it all. So… yeah. I suck.
This is my favorite find from my research so far.
