Some Andronicus updates, and what’s coming soon…!

Hi everyone! It’s been a busy time at Andronicus HQ(TM) lately, and there’s a whole bunch of exciting stuff coming your way over the next few weeks and months! I wanted to give you all an update on what’s been going on, what to expect, and (roughly) when stuff will happen.

Bear in mind that I’m trying to churn out this glorious content in between changing nappies and managing a… fluctuating… sleep schedule, so the card is very much subject to change – but I’m Doing My Best, promise. ๐Ÿ˜€

(I’m not going to use baby Alsop as an excuse, but I’m also definitely going to use baby Alsop as an excuse.)

Oh, and I’ve now set up a VERY COOL Ko-fi page (CLICK HERE)! The content on WA will always be 100% free for teachers and students, but if you fancy buying me a coffee to help me stay awake and get content out a bit sooner then head on over and throw me a few pennies. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • First of all, I hope that you like the website’s new look! It started out with me just wanting a professional-looking homepage, but then plans evolved into re-jigging everything else. I’m still in two minds about the whole thing, I think. I love that posts are now arranged by category, and I’m digging the cleaner layout – but I sort of miss the colour of the old site. What do you think???

THE REST OF OCTOBER 2022

  • COMING SOON: the next in my series of An Inspector Calls close reading commentaries (#LivesIntertwined)! I’m really enjoying doing this – it honestly feels as though I’m getting something new from the play by taking it slowly and delving into the nuances of the text. I hope it’s useful for everyone studying or teaching the play.

NOVEMBER / DECEMBER 2022

  • Two more in the #LivesIntertwined series, moving through Act 1 to explore the characters of Edna and Mr Birling.
  • A review/analysis of Maggie O’Farrell’s AMAZING novel Hamnet (2020). It’s a gorgeous, magical book that will tug on every heartstring you possess. I’ll mostly be focusing on just the first page of the book, though…! Why? Because it’s probably (almost definitely?) the best first page of any novel I’ve ever read. Hopefully you’ll agree with me.
  • Video reviews of some books that I’m REALLY excited to share with you! These videos are a new direction for me and I’m learning as I go, but I can’t wait to see what you think. ๐Ÿ™‚

So that’s the shape of things to come for the rest of 2022… Maybe I’ll even squeeze in some Brucie Bonus posts as well, if nappy-changing allows. In the mean time, leave a comment below or send me a message if there’s any text or topic that you’d really like me to cover.

Keep on smiling, keep on reading, and to thine own selves be true!

– James
