Re-Wri-Day: At the Festival

As I am still trying to finally get the remaining festival reviews done (as you can see from the new To-Finish list on the right) and have already thought about doing what I did for the In Concert-Category for the festival reviews as well I can give you another Re-Wri-Day.
What is the Re-Wri-Day?
Inspired by EdMooneyPhotography’s Re-Work-Wednesday and based on the fact that my writing style for this Blog has changed over the past two years I kind of created my own version of this.
But why the strange name and what does it mean?
I’m awful when it comes to puns and I couldn’t help myself but to turn re-write and Friday into one strange word: Re-Wri-Day. Sorry…
But in conclusion: These posts are supposed to be always published on a Friday, but not necessarily on every Friday, just the Fridays when I feel like editing an old post beforehand.
And what am I doing with this?
I am taking my old posts from the beginnings of writing this Blog or just former posts and read them again to see what things I can change or add. They wont necessarily be actually re-written, but some changes will be made.
In the Re-Wri-Day post I’ll also give you a couple of thoughts on why I had chosen the topic and stuff you might be interested in.
So, let’s have a look at the posts in the Category: At the Festival
First of all I changed the category from simply „Festival“ to „At the Festival“ and modified the post titles accordingly.
Like I did for the concert-reviews I also added additional headlines between different paragraphs in the posts. The posts also got a couple of more line breaks and re-phrasings. There were just too many sentences starting with „But“ or „And“…
In the reviews for the Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum and my first two Wacken, I have now separated the different times I’ve been there a bit better and more understandable. However, I haven’t changed the title of the former to „At the Festival:“ as I don’t really see it as such, but it nevertheless fits the category. The ones for Wacken 2011, Wacken 2012 and the Metalfest 2012 were split a bit differently. Though it divided the days, it also now fits the different topics I’m talking about.
I hope these changes make the reviews now more understandable and I’ll write the new ones like that from the get-go.
Hopefully I will actually manage to do at least one of them before this years festival season starts at the end of the month…
