At some point in September, I started an insane reviewing sprint and I haven't stopped. I've written five reviews for Classic-Horror so far this month. Five. Keep in mind my reviews are usually longer than a thousand words and they're fairly in-depth. Over the life of the site, I've averaged just shy of two a month.
You know that scene in Scanners where the guy's head explodes into hamburger meat? That's me right now.
There are a couple factors. Most of my writers are working on our massive October event. Also, we've had a number of post-2000 reviews on the front page recently, something I like to avoid, given that we are "Classic-Horror", emphasis on "Classic". I've had to bust out a few reviews of 1960s and 70s movies to compensate.
Still, in a given month, we don't usually post more than five reviews unless we're running a special event. My goal has always been eight -- roughly two a week -- but I never have enough writers. So far in September, we've published four reviews with three more in queue. On top of that, we have two screeners that will need reviews before the month is out, one of which I'm handling. That'll be nine reviews. Six will be my own.
I like this month. This is a good month.( Bonus! Sneak peek at the October logo for Classic-Horror )
